AMD Ryzen™ 5 2600X:
Ryzen™: The Intelligent Processor
Is your processor intelligent? Every AMD Ryzen™ processor is armed with a true neural net to help analyze your computing needs and optimize responsiveness every millisecond. Improved performance and more advanced features, 2nd Gen AMD Ryzen™ desktop processors provide faster, smoother computing experiences than you thought possible.
Zen+ on 2nd Gen. Ryzen
The 2nd Gen. 2000 Series AMD Ryzen processors build on the phenomenal performance the world witnessed with the legendary 14nm ‘Zen’ Architecture, by moving to a smaller fabrication process to deliver more efficient chips, running faster & cooler, while infusing the latest innovative technologies from AMD. This 12nm ‘Zen+’ Architecture at the heart of Ryzen 2nd Gen. CPUs, allows AMD to deliver some the best performing processors, ever.
The 2nd Gen. AMD Ryzen processors using ‘Zen+’ are optimised for use with the brand new X470 motherboard platform, allowing users to take advantage of all the improvements & new technologies packed into the ultra-small 12nm CPU die.
Backwards Compatible with Existing AM4 Motherboards*
Already have an AM4 Motherboard, or don’t need all the features of the X470? Don’t sweat. AMD AM4 Motherboards shipping now with the ‘AMD Ryzen Desktop 2000 Ready’ badge on the box are guaranteed to be compatible, while many motherboard manufacturers are offering BIOS updates to enable support on previously purchased motherboards*. Once you know your AM4 motherboard is compatible, or you have installed your BIOS update, installation is the same as any other Ryzen 3, 5 or 7 Processor. Even better – cooler compatibility is the same too!
*Please look for the ‘AMD Ryzen Desktop 2000 Ready’ badge, or check with your motherboard manufacturer to find out if a BIOS update is available & required for compatibility with the AMD Ryzen 2000 Series CPUs.
Each 2nd Gen. Ryzen CPU comes with a cooler in the box, perfectly tailored to the thermal performance of each model. This means less time worrying about how you are going to cool you CPU - and more time gaming.
