Improved on the first generation Ryzen featuring 14nm Zen architecture, the second generation Ryzen processor is based on Zen+ architecture. AMD Ryzen 5 2600 is manufactured with 12nm process. As compared with last generation, the new processor delivers better IPC performance, higher power efficiency, lower memory frequency and enhanced RAM frequency support. Whether building a gaming PC, workstation or other systems requiring high multiprocessing performance, you can always count on the AMD Ryzen processor that offers the performance you need at a price you want for yourself.
This ryzen processor comes bundled with an AMD Wraith Stealth cooler for efficient and silent cooling.
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600 is a desktop processor with 6 cores, launched in April 2018. It is part of the Ryzen 5 lineup, using the Zen+ (Pinnacle Ridge) architecture with Socket AM4. Ryzen 5 2600 has 16MB of L3 cache and operates at 3.4 GHz by default, but can boost up to 3.9 GHz, depending on the workload. AMD is building the Ryzen 5 2600 on a 12 nm production process using 4,800 million transistors.
You may freely adjust the unlocked multiplier on Ryzen 5 2600, which simplifies overclocking greatly, as you can easily dial in any overclocking frequency.
With a TDP of 65 W, it consumes typical power levels for a modern PC. AMD’s processor supports DDR4 memory with a dual-channel interface. This processor does not have integrated graphics, you will need a separate graphics card.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Ryzen 5 2600, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) will run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, AMD is including the newer AVX2 standard, too, but not AVX-512.
