Performance

Zen+ on Gen 2 Ryzen

The 2nd Gen. 2000 Series AMD Ryzen processors build on the phenomenal performance the world witnessed with the legendary 14nm ‘Zen’ Architecture, by moving to a smaller fabrication process to deliver more efficient chips, running faster & cooler, while infusing the latest innovative technologies from AMD. This 12nm ‘Zen+’ Architecture at the heart of Ryzen 2nd Gen. CPUs, allows AMD to deliver some the best performing processors, ever.

Optimised Motherboard Compatibility

Ryzen Motherboards

X470 Motherboard Optimised

The 2nd Gen. AMD Ryzen processors using ‘Zen+’ are optimised for use with the brand new X470 motherboard platform, allowing users to take advantage of all the improvements & new technologies packed into the ultra-small 12nm CPU die.

Compatible with Existing AM4 Motherboards*

Already have an AM4 Motherboard, or don’t need all the features of the X470? Don’t sweat. AMD AM4 Motherboards shipping now with the ‘AMD Ryzen Desktop 2000 Ready’ badge on the box are guaranteed to be compatible, while many motherboard manufacturers are offering BIOS updates to enable support on previously purchased motherboards*.

Reviews
AMD Ryzen™ 5 2600, AM4, Zen+, 6 Core, 12 Thread, 3.4GHz, 3.9GHz Turbo, 19MB Cache, 65W, CPU, Retail + Wraith Stealth is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent so far So I've been using this a few months now since my previous motherboard failed. This was a notably cheaper than the Intel one it replaced (which was 4 years old and not OC) and so far I have noticed little if any variation in performance. If you are you just building a gaming rig you really don't need anymore than this. Very happy overall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a good cpu Thank you AMD for improving the desktop cpu market 10fold, this cpu is very fast and powerful, for gaming and mild workstation use. Fully recommend for this price point!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No longer good value here I got an e mail asking for a review of this cpu. Provided that a cpu works, there's little you can say about it, because you already have the specs on number of cores and speed. I've had 2 of these from Scan, and both seem to work OK. Installed in different Asrock boards they don't boot into Win 10 as fast as my Phenom II 965 system, about which I'm astonished, but more important than the cpu in this respect is the board and chipset. You also don't see much improvement in how things run, although hard disk speed is now at a compatible SATA level, which is good for disk-bound work. (Mind you, the difference between 65W power consumption and 125W is that the case fans extract rather warm air from the Phenom system rather noisily and nothing like as hot air from the Ryzen). The stock cooler is quite adequate for normal use. For many computing purposes the 2600 is overkill anyway. The recent price hike here, to within a £ or 2 of the price of a 3600 stops this being good value for money, and suggests to me that Scan don't want to sell them. I was thinking about a third purchase, but whatever it is it won't be a 2600 at 50% more than the last two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Processor. I bought this mid-range Ryzen chip to replace my aging i5-2400 based gaming setup. I can confirm that this processor is an amazing piece of silicon, and will handle most modern games with ease, as long as your graphics card can also handle the load. I highly recommend grabbing the Ryzen 5 2600 if you're looking for a cheap but powerful processor for your computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value CPU Bought this for a "Budget" gaming build, its doing more than enough for me, haven't even stretched it or overclocked it yet (still running stock cooler) - When paired with MSI Tomahawk, i had to tweak power/volt/load options in Bios, after that all fine! would recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bang for Buck I started watching tech Youtube videos to research computer parts and this Ryzen 5 2600 was recommended regularly across the board as 'bang for buck' and I can completely recommend this CPU for an initial AM4 upgrade, as I don't think Ryzen 3 is worth the short term outlay. Scan had the cheapest price when you include £49.99 'The Division 2' game thrown in, though you will need to verify your purchase through AMD rewards and their own verification software. (This requires a full system, so I needed to buy an AM4 motherboard and a single stick of DDR4 RAM for verification) While Ryzen 3rd gen is on the way, buying an AM4 motherboard and DDR4 memory as well as this purchase means that when the Ryzen 3rd gen does release, there is a viable upgrade path as AMD has announced AM4 will remain for Ryzen 3rd gen. DDR4 memory is reducing in price at the moment and as I only bought a single stick of 16GB this also allows for upgrade-ability. The Division 2 runs smoothly at 1080p 60 fps on my PC running a Asus ROG GTX 1060 6GB, while gaming the stock 'wraith stealth' is worked hard and does create a lot of noise, though is not noticeable for day to day tasks. Ideally an aftermarket fan cooler is needed to get silent or quieter game play, though this can be done at any time. As with all build your own parts, do your research and find the best value for what you are after, as the 2600X is only £40 more and has a better stock cooler, the 2600X could be the ideal solution for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cpu for budget builds. This is the best processor for budget builds, pair it with a decent graphics card and you got yourself a mid gaming pc or a decent workhorse for editing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product Excellent product, arrived quickly and works exactly as expected. Would definitely reccommend.
