Cores6More cores means more threads and therefore more processes can be run simultaneously
Speed3.4GHzClock frequency indicates processor speed, but is only reliable in comparisons between CPUs of the same family
CodenameZen+The code name given by the manufacturers
Release Date30 Apr 2018 The more recent the release, the more likely the CPU will receive up-to-date manufacturer support
TDP65WThe lower the TDP, the less power the CPU requires to run and thus the more efficient it is and the less heat it creates
L1 Cache512KBThe bigger the L1 cache, the more data can be stored for lightning CPU access to priority processes (though a bigger cache means a higher latency
L2 Cache3072KBAfter L1 cache, L2 is utilized for slower (but still very fast) data access
L3 Cache16MBThe L3 cache is the largest CPU cache, but still provides very quick access to data
Lithography12nmThe smaller the lithographic technology used, the less power is required to run the CPU, and the less heat is created during intense use
CPU SocketSocket AM4The motherboard socket and CPU socket should match to indicate the CPU is compatible with the motherboard and will fit into it
Unlocked MultipliernoAn unlocked clock multiplier means you can adjust the multiplier for an overclocking speed boost

Ryzen 5 2600 compatibility review

Overall, the AMD Ryzen 5 2600 has exceptional performance. Its 6 cores clocked at 3.4 GHz provide extremely swift processing speeds and allow many processes to be run simultaneously.

The CPU is over 1 year old, meaning while it is probably beginning to look old compared to newer processors, manufacturer support should still be readily available.

Created with lithographic technology sized at 12 nanometers, the Ryzen 5 2600 is built for extreme speeds and efficiency, and with a Thermal Design Power of 65W the amount of power necessary to run is not excessive.
