The Ryzen 5 2600, from AMD’s second generation (Zen+) of high-end desktop Ryzen processors, supersedes the first generation Ryzen 5 1600. The newer generation sees a lithography reduction from 14nm to 12nm, but no increase in the number of cores and threads (6 and 12 respectively) over the ground-breaking first generation which continues to surpass similarly priced Intel CPUs in terms of multi-core performance. In other words, progress between generations is predominantly driven by power efficiency and therefore higher attainable clock speeds. The 2600 appears to have a stock base/boost clock of 3.4 / 3.9 GHz compared to the 1600’s 3.2 / 3.6 GHz which is expected to result in a modest increase in effective speed that said, early benchmarks are inconclusive. Included in the expected retail price of about $200 is a Wraith Stealth cooler, so the 2600, like the 1600 before it, represents great value for money, especially for workstation users. The 2600 compliments the new 400 series motherboards and is also backwards compatible with the 300 series following a bios update. [Apr '18 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 7 1800X is AMD's flagship Ryzen CPU. Clocked at 3.6 GHz with a turbo frequency of 4.0 GHz (stock) this chip offers a staggering level of multi-core performance. Comparing the 1800X with the Intel i7-6850K shows that the 1800X delivers 25% more multi-core throughput than its more expensive counterpart. Historically AMD's CPU architecture has had a much lower IPC than Intel's and consequently Intel have dominated the CPU market since 2009. Comparing IPC between Intel's Kaby Lake and Ryzen shows a maximum gap of just 9%. A very welcome shake-up of the CPU market will unfold as the remaining Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 3 models are rolled out. For now the 1800X offers workstation users similar processing power to a $1,000 i7-6900K at half the price. [Mar '17 CPUPro]
