Product information - Ryzen 5 2600X 3,6 GHz (Pinnacle Ridge) Socket AM4 - boxed

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X 6-core processor belongs to AMD's second generation of processors based on the "Zen" architecture. The Ryzen 2000 series "Zen+" processors build on the successful foundations laid by the first generation of "Zen" microarchitecture. Going by the codename of Pinnacle Ridge, the Texas-based chip manufacturer is ready to impress businesses and consumers with a second wave of newly optimised high-end processors. Although still utilising the AM4 platform, the new processors stand ready to bring some serious competition into the field of play by means of higher clock frequencies, an improved boost function, as well as advanced overclocking technology in the form of XFR2.

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X at a Glance:

AMD Ryzen 5
  • 6 "Zen"-cores rated at a mere 95 Watt Thermal Design Power (TDP)
  • 12 Threads thanks to Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT)
  • Very high Single- and Multi-Thread performance
  • Base Clock of 3,6 GHz & 4,25 GHz Turbo with Precision Boost 2
  • Includes XFR2 automatic overclocking function
  • Unlocked multiplier for manual overclocking (unlocked CPU)
  • Large Unified Cache Memory: 3 MB L2 & 16 MB L3
  • High-efficiency, non-planar 12 Nanometer LP transistors
  • AVX2 Instruction Set Extensions for complex vector calculations
  • Two AES units for fast, reliable data encryption
  • Modern AM4 platform with extensive range of features
  • Supports DDR4-RAM rated at a guaranteed 2.933 MHz (Dual-Channel)
  • Includes AMD Wraith Spire CPU cooler

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Hexa-Core CPU with 4,25 GHz Precision Boost

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X is a "Pinnacle Ridge"-gen processor offering six physical CPU cores which, thanks to Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT), are capable of processing two threads simultaneously. This results in a doubling of the virtual core count to make for 12 in total. The hexa-core model functions with a clock frequency of 3,6 GHz per core which, thanks to Precision Boost 2, can change in real time to match the use case scenario - irrespective of whether this is in games or applications. These adjustments are made in precise on-the-fly increments while remaining within the TDP up to a Turbo frequency of 4,25 GHz.

The TDP sits at just 95 Watts which, in comparison to other 6-core processors from AMD, is extremely conservative - especially when taking into account the increased clock frequencies of the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X. Manufactured using the new, advanced 12 nm FLP manufacturing process, the processor comes with a total of 3 MB Level 2 Cache and 16 MB Level 3 Cache which are then combined together to form a "Smart Prefetch Cache".

The CPU offers 20 PCIe 3.0 lanes, four of which are reserved for the connection to the motherboard chipset and for operating NVMe SSDs. As a result 16 lanes remain for communicating with graphics cards which, in either x16 or x8+x8 modes, support NVIDIA's SLI technology for multiple graphics cards. In terms of memory, DDR4-RAM modules rated for operation at 2.933 MHz are supported, meaning that even higher clock frequencies can be achieved via overclocking.

Extended Frequency Range (XFR) for Automatic Overclocking

AMD Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR2)The days of fretting over manual overclocks are at an end now that the CPU itself is capable of regulating it independently: The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X is equipped with the second generation auto-OC feature known as Extended Frequency Range (XFR2). This allows the processor's frequency to be boosted far beyond the maximum boost clock defined by factory settings, provided that the installed cooling solution holds sufficient reserve capacity. As soon as the CPU's integrated sensors register the extra cooling capacity, the Ryzen CPU automatically sets about making clock frequency adjustments to match the respective cooling.

Outside interference from the user is therefore unnecessary - overclocking has never been so easy! Depending on whether the processor is air-cooled with a relatively small boxed cooler, a larger (dual-) tower cooler, AiO- or custom water cooling, or even via extreme LN2 cooling, the processor will actively seek to maximise its operating frequencies in accordance with the cooling provided.

Unlocked CPU: Easy Overclocking Thanks to the Unlocked Multiplier

Automatic overclocking aside, all AMD Ryzen CPUs come "unlocked" and offer - as was the case with the "Black Editions" and "K" of earlier series - an unlocked multiplier, meaning that overclockers are free to manually unlock even higher clock frequencies using the UEFI or other software tools, provided an OC-compatible motherboard and chipset is present e.g. the AMD X470 alongside adequate cooling.
Note: This relates to a boxed version that includes the AMD Wraith Spire CPU cooler. The use of an AMD Ryzen CPU requires an AM4 motherboard.

Geiles Preis-Leistungsverhältnis

Der Prozessor läuf (Ohne OC) auf einem ASUS TUF B450M-PRO Gaming und wird von einem BeQuiet! PureRock gekühlt.
Bin ernsthaft überrascht, dass das Ding so locker vor sich hin arbeitet. Vor allem weil ich bisher nur Intel CPUs verwendet hatte.


Preis + Leistung einfach Geil!


Besser als erwartet! Und die Erwartungen waren schon hoch.

In der Kombination mit meiner RX 580 läuft jedes Spiel, welches ich bisher testen konnte, auf 2k mit guten 60FPS.
Bin vom FX-6350 auf den Ryzen 5 2600X umgestiegen, und der Leistungsboost ist grandios!
Da ich nicht gerne Overclock, war die 2600X die beste Option für mich. Der Retail Kühler ist auch völlig ausreichend dafür, obwohl ein neuer Kühler natürlich immer helfen kann.

Vorallem für Multitasker, kann ich diesen CPU nur weiterempfehlen!


Tip Top

Ich habe meinem alten Gaming-Rig ein Upgrade verpasst, nachdem ich bei aktuellen Spielen die Anforderungsgrenzen erreicht habe (inkl Overclocking)

Die CPU ist richtig flott. Bei meinen Lieblingsgames merke ich einen deutlichen Boost, spielt sich wieder flüssig. Ohne OC bei geringerem Stromverbrauch.

Klare Empfehlung. Preis/Leistung ist echt gut!!


Sehr gute CPU man sollte sich jedoch aktuell noch 2 mal überlegen ob man nicht die Ryzen 5 1600x kauft

Was dis Leistung des Prozessors betrifft bin ich vollstens zufrieden, habe meinen auf 4.1GHz hochgecklockt da er ja bis 4.2GHz gecklockt werden kann.
Alles in allem, ist es jedoch zum aktuellen Zeitpunkt Mai 2019, sollte man diese CPU nicht overlocken und ausreizen, die bessere Wahl sich eine Ryzen1600x zu holen.
Diese ist eben ein Schnäppchen was Preis Leistung angeht.

  • Toms Hardware - AMD Ryzen 7 2700X und Ryzen 5 2600X

    Eine wirklich konkurrenzfähige CPU, sorry zwei, ein sehr selbstbewusster Preis,  aber gebündelt mit jeder Menge Gimmicks und Dreingaben, die man beim Team Blau zum Teil wirklich vermisst. Abwählen kann man sie allerdings auch nicht. So wird es am Ende wohl der Straßenpreis und die Vorliebe für eine der Farben richten müssen.

    Hothardware - AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen Review: 2700X And 2600X Deliver More Performance Per Dollar

    All told, AMD’s got another winner on their hands with the 2nd Generation Ryzen 2000 series. These processors offer better performance, more features, and higher overclocks than their predecessors, they compete very well in their respective product classes, and they're compelling values to boot. If you’re thinking of building a new rig and were contemplating an AMD CPU, give the 2nd Generation Ryzen 2000 series a long, hard look.

  • MadBoxPC - AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and AMD Ryzen 5 2600X

    Finally this second generation of AMD Ryzen processors leaves us with a mixed flavor, as they are still excellent processors, but there is something that does not leave us 100% happy, and has to do with the handling of temperatures and consumption. Although it is somewhat improved with respect to the previous generation, still does not stop convincing us 100%, but we emphasize that it is the only thing to which we are not happy, in everything else we consider that these new processors are an excellent product.
