I've just upgraded my Acer Aspire 5750/2414 laptop from its i5-2540M (that originally came with the i5-2410M) to the i7-2720QM, this processor runs allot cooler and is a faster processor with its 4 cores and 8 threads, it needs setting up to the 5750/2414 motherboard the Acer JE50_HR and HM65 chipset and the Insyde BIOS v1.21. All in all I'm very happy with this processor and its made a big difference to this laptop all cross the board to handle the current 64bit operating systems, especially windows 10 pro. [Nov '18 steveng]

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 workstation users. The 2600 compliments the new 400 series motherboards and is also backwards compatible with the 300 series following a bios update. Even though the 2600 is plausible for pure multimedia production streamers should look elsewhere. Streaming with dedicated hardware such as NVENC or a separate stream PC will nearly always result in fewer dropped frames. [Apr '18 CPUPro]
