Average Bench: 92.4% (42nd of 1158)

Based on 75,024 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F82 Model: AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Six-Core Processor

The 6 core, 12 thread Ryzen 5 2600X is one of four new AMD second generation of high-end desktop Ryzen processors (codenamed Pinnacle Ridge) renowned for excellent value multi-core performance. The 2600X is set to replace the also 6 core, 12 thread 1600X as AMD’s new mid-range Ryzen 5 flagship. The latest generation of CPUs features a matured Zen+ chip architecture with 12nm lithography, increased clock speeds and Precision Boost 2 technology designed to leverage more CPU power than per the first generation. The 2600X appears to have stock base / boost clock speeds of 3.6 / 4.2 GHz. This is only marginally faster than the 1600X’s 3.6 / 4.0 GHz. Modest effective speed improvements are expected, although further benchmarks are necessary to draw firm conclusions. The 2600X ships with a Wraith Spire cooler and is priced reasonably at an expected $250. However, for most use cases, the new lower clocked Ryzen 5 2600 at $200 represents better value for money. Pinnacle Ridge processors are designed to work with the new 400 series motherboards, which allow for greater overclocking head room, and they are also backwards compatible with the 300 series motherboard following a bios update. [Apr '18 CPUPro]

Paired it with Thermaltakes 120 RGB water cooling system for ~$50 and it just keeps marching through everything set in front of it - while never even bothering to get hot. OC it to 4.1 GHz and you may touch the low 60s (°C, with 24°C ambient). Atta boy :D

Can be overcloked, 10% better than 8700k in multi-core, 10% under in single core. But at 4.3 Ghz, I have better results than my 4790k at 4.9Ghz, with the same 1060 6GB video card excellent results and 50% more efficient than the 4790k at 4.9 with the 6 cores active, and it is sensible
