Average Bench: 87.4% (59th of 1159)

Based on 150,951 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F82 Model: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor

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]

Low TDP, was able to OC to 4325mhz using EVGA 240 cooling kit. A slight upgrade for gaming when compared to old sandy bridge i5's but vastly superior in all other uses. Do I need 6 cores? Probably not, but it's nice to have when multitasking. The Ryzen 2600 will likely last just as long as the 2500k did for me, an exceptional value!

It is the goldilocks of CPUs in 2018, has just enough frequency, plenty of cores and threads and it's unlocked on relatively cheap motherboards.

Great CPU for its price, it powers through a lot of games and holds its own quite well in rendering and CPU intensive tasks. It can be overclocked relatively nicely, from its stock 3.4 I have mine up to 4.25 with a custom loop LC and it boosts to about 4.8. Huge step up from the ancient BullDozer architecture of the FX series
