AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it.

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.

Performs better than the standard 1600 and similar to a 2600. I picked this up for around $100, which was much cheaper than the 1600 and 2600 at the time.
