AMD Ryzen 5 2600 review: trust us, you’re not going to miss the X from this gaming CPU

The AMD Ryzen 2 processor range launched with a pair of new X-series CPUs, offering the highest clock speeds and best performance. But wherever the 2700X and 2600X go so will follow the non-X variants… and so we have the impressive Ryzen 5 2600, the perfect gaming CPU for anyone happy to indulge in a little OC play.

Check out where the latest Ryzens come in our pick of the best gaming CPUs.

The second generation of AMD Ryzen processors has delivered the finest CPUs team red have ever produced. That might sound like so much media hyperbole, but with both the Ryzen 5 2600X and Ryzen 7 2700X AMD have produced a pair of high-end processors without the traditional high-end price-tag.

But what’s in an X? These X-series chips come with the highest clockspeeds and supposedly have the highest level of automatic overclocking, powered by the Precision Boost and XFR features of Ryzen’s latest silicon. How much does that really matter in the final reckoning? Not as much as you might think if you’re willing to get your hands dirty.
