D610 ISO in full stops or is 1/2 or 1/3 stops really OK?

I'm hearing two different stories:

(1) with modern sensors, 1/2 or 1/3 stop increments for ISO is totally OK, so that for instance, 1200 is better than 1600 but not as good as 800.

(2) ISO still really works in full stops, i.e. shooting at 1200 will be as noisy as 1600, or potentially even worse, due to interpolated ISO (between 800 and 1600).

Which is really true? Please point me to any relevant articles or posts. My searching didn't find anything.

Thanks!
