Ryzen 5 2600 Review Posted Before Launch

With the great success of AMD's Ryzen 1000 processors, many have been looking forward to the launch of its successors, the Ryzen 2000 series of CPUs that are to launch sometime this month. Though we are not yet to the release date, some information is leaking out, including a review by El Chapuzas Informatico of the Ryzen 5 2600, which VideoCardz found and shared some of. While this second generation 6 core/12 thread part does show some nice if only moderate improvements from the Ryzen 5 1600, the tests have some issues with them. For one thing, they were done on an X370 motherboard so X470-exclusive performance-improving features are not present, and the platform was not completely stable for gaming tests. As the release date approaches we will hopefully see more reviews more representative of the consumer platform.

Also shared by VideoCardz is a video from AMD's YouTube channel looking back at the Ryzen processors, one year after release. Something mentioned in the video is that work has already begun on the Zen 5 CPU architecture, which will follow the Zen 3 design. Both Zen 2 and Zen 3 will be 7 nm designs and Zen 2 will be the company's first CPU with a fix for the Spectre vulnerabilities, but there are limited details beyond these. If you are wondering what happened to Zen 4, apparently four is often skipped due its unlucky meaning in Chinese culture. The earliest VideoCardz speculates we might see Zen 5 launch is 2021, since Zen 3 is supposed to release in 2020.
