The Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 is amongst the fastest of the Core 2 Duo range of now nearly ten year old CPUs. The E8400 is included in our group tests simply as a reference point due to its huge success back in its day. Running at a clock speed of 3.0 GHz the E8400 has an effective speed of 52 which is 85% slower than its modern day counterparts. The relative lack of performance is especially noticeable in the area of multi-core processing as a consequence of the E8400's relatively few two cores. Anyone considering an upgrade needn't hesitate as modern CPUs are not only orders of magnitude faster but also considerably more energy efficient and feature packed. [Oct '14 CPUPro]

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. [Apr '18 CPUPro]
