Features and chipset
The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler shares many of the same specifications as its predecessors, including the same core and thread count, base clock speed and L3 cache. Really, the only major improvement here is the 0.2Ghz higher boost clock speed – but that’s really all it needs to reach a significantly higher level of performance.
This is largely thanks to improvements made to Precision Boost that ensures that all threads are pushing the highest frequencies they can at all times. Then there’s also Extended Frequency Range 2 (XFR2) that now works across all cores.
Furthermore, the Ryzen 2nd Generation introduces a 12nm Zen+ architecture that’s smaller than both the 14nm Zen architecture Ryzen utilizes and Intel Coffee Lake’s own 14nm process. Meanwhile, the new X470 chipset also provides improved power delivery and efficiency.
