A leak reveals improvements of up to 31% in different benchmarks with respect to its predecessor, the Ryzen 5 1600.
The review of Ryzen of AMD is about to fall. With a release date scheduled for April, starting to see leaks and benchmarks was only a matter of time. In fact, this is not the first filtration of this new series of processors, but with it we know more details of how they are going to be the performance of this improved version of Zen cores, more specifically the Ryzen 5 2600, a replacement for the current 1600. If we compare the filtered benchmarks with the previous generation we can see a score of 4269 in single-core and 202102 in multi-core. Which means an improvement of 15% and 31% respectively. An improvement more than substantial.
To see more clearly why let’s see a comparison chart with the characteristics of the 1000 and 2000 series:
|characteristics||Ryzen 5 1600||Ryzen 5 2600|
|Family||Ryzen Zen||Ryzen Zen +|
|Base Frequency||3.2 GHz||3.4 GHz|
|Turbo Frequency||3.6 GHz||3.8 GHz|
Effectively, the main differences will come from those improved 12nm in its manufacture, which allows it to reach higher frequencies of base and turbo, and possibly enable a better overclock. Other improvements that we do not see in this list, but which are crucial, are for example the renewed memory controller or Precision Boost 2.0 that would allow them to improve their performance with respect to the previous generation.
These data are registered in a test platform of the AMD itself, so we must compare them carefully and wait for the tests with commercial hardware that will surely appear on a date closer to the output of these new processors.
