AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Leaked Online, Alleged Release Date, Specs and Price Specified
During the CES 2018, the AMD has revealed its updates to the processor lineup. One of which is the AMD Ryzen 5 2600, which has been leaked in a SiSoftware SANDRA database entry together with ASUS’ upcoming motherboard, the X470.
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Specs and Features
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600, with codename ZD2600BBM68AF_38/34_Y in the SANDRA database, is anticipated to replace 1st generation Ryzen 5 1600. When it comes to the specifications, the upcoming GPU from the American multinational company is equipped with 6 physical cores and 12 threads. Based on the GOU’s codename, it is clocked at 3.4GHz (base) to 3.8GHz (boost). The forthcoming chip also sports a 16MB of L3 cache and 3MB of L2 cache, together with a 65W TDP.
The aforementioned specs of the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 are typically similar to the Ryzen 5 1600. But then, the clock speeds aren’t the same since the Ryzen 5 1600 has a 3.2GHz base clock and 3.6GHz boost clock. Supposing the leaked details are correct, the Ryzen 5 2600 will have somewhat higher clocks, and it will definitely benefit from architectural optimizations. The latter of which may have directed to AMD of being capable to goose the base and enhance clock speeds.
AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Release Date and Price
AMD confirmed during the CES 2018 that the Ryzen 2 chips will hit the market shelves in April. Tech pundits are hoping that the fact that this benchmark has leaked this early, it is safe to conclude that the American multi-national company is on track for release.
When it comes to price, this will be the other key element for the Ryzen chipsets. Nonetheless, there is still no available detail about that. Moreover, the AMD fans can pick up the existing Ryzen 5 1600 online at under £170 in the UK, which is around $235 and AU$295.
