Solid price for performance. Ability to overclock gets stronger with the right mobo and ram. It comes stock only 9% short of the 3600 and is almost identical to the 2600. I picked mine up for $85 so might not be as great of a deal at the moment. Amazing considering it was released under the 1600 name and is a 12nm chip. Zooom!

Is this the 12 nm Zen+ Ryzen 5 2600 disguised as a 1600? The "AF" model?

Cheap, good to pair with a 570 all the way to a 2060 for lower budgets. Even a ITX 2060 build will struggle to top $900 without some luxury.
