5.0 out of 5 stars The little engine that could, AMD does!
By Oxfordgirl on November 5, 2018
I changed my PC after ten years! I went with AMD as it was so much cheaper and better, looking at the data below. The i7-8700K, the Intel equivalent, is $380.00 verses $200.00 for the AMD 2600X. I used the same power supply, case, mouse, keyboard ETC as it all was newer. You can see the set-up I did this time. The GPU is in the middle slot to give the CPU cooler a tunnel of air straight through the system. The NVMe drive sits under the CPU cooler and gets air pulled across it. The GPU is AIO hybrid type so no hot air in the case. Yes, I oriented the cooler to shoot straight up as this seems best to send hot air UP out the top of the case and not into the GPU radiator. Temps so far support the set-up. Real neat and clean this time around.

I have a pretty good CPU and NOCTUA DH-15S cooler, so it auto dynamic clocks (what AMD calls XFR2) to 4.9 GHz on all cores! I don't do a thing, as it is all stock. Even the fans are cool-and-quiet and ramp based on temps. This is a great PC! The ASRock X470 is great, too, with that 1 GB ADATA NVMe SSD drive blazing along with W10 pro. The memory XMP profiled to the right timings and speed straight away with the Taichi MB...dead stable.

The Heaven 4.0 scores are 15 FPS faster than the i7-870 in the old system with the same 1070ti clocks (see attached). That AMD CPU kicks butt for the price. If you are thinking of a PC, the 2600X allows you to afford the a NVMe drive and/or a faster graphics card. I game at 1440P so the fastest CPU is a waste of money.

Ran Wolfenstein - The New Order all day today and not a single hick-up. The system exceeded my expectations, that's for sure.

Corsair HX-750

Here is the data on XFR2 actual function.
Look at the dynamic OC difference! ~4.3 GHz on one and ~4.9 GHz on the other! VCPU core adjust from less than a volt to 1.48 volts.
Remember that the numbers are "max" at any time, not at one point in time. So ALL cores aren't likely ever at those frequencies at the same time, just the ones that are needing the boost. Unlike a manual over clock, you aren't stuck revving the CPU engine in neutral wasting power on cores that don't have work, and, generating HEAT that slows down the thread you DO want to be running hardest!

This is why the AMD set-up is so compelling now, It allows every last bit of performance to be reached with minimal HEAT generation as ONLY the cores / clocks that NEED the boost get it. Eventually, they all seem to see a set peak GHz value (I don't think my 2600X can run 4.93 GHz on all cores simultaneously) running randomly at full tilt.

If you look at the CPU and GPU utilization scores you'll see dramatic differences between games. One runs the CPU hard, the other the GPU.

The CPU processor adjust to fit the requirements. And, it adjusts a LOT more than I ever though it would. With fixed over clock you really match ONE type of game and spin your wheels on the other. XFR2 senses the wheel spin on the CPU and backs it off if it can't drive performance forward on everything you do. And yes, it backs off the CPU voltage on that core, you can watch it dynamically change on each core. This lowers overall heats to the minimum at any point in time for the work being done.

I sound like an add for AMD's XFR2, but I'm just the opposite, I was real nervous about the expense on a seemingly too good to be true dynamic OC program. But, it really does work and the data supports it 100% using real games and actual use situations. This CPU is 3.6 GHz base clock, but dynamically OC to near 5 GHz! And, this was gaming for 12 hours straight on Wolfenstein with ZERO crashes. Someone has to do this test, may as well be me. This PC is dead stable hitting those numbers. If you don't believe the AMD propaganda, it is true this time around.

Let's add the second important variable, cooling. The AMD Cool and Quiet was panned in the beginning. Now, it supercharges the XFR2 capability as it cools ONLY when needed. The old way was top blow the house down 24/7. Now? I hear the fans spin up in game and then spin down again. The cooling is DYNAMIC as well, so less noise most of the time. The X470 Taichi MB chip set tested my fans min speeds at initialization so it knows their limits and away it went after that. Both systems work seamlessly on my PC. Seldom does this ever happen. I didn't mess with a thing, no CPU overclocks, no fan profiles, nothing. I see completely reasonable heats, too.

The 2600X is definitely the little engine that could, and DOES! Or should I say, AMD DOES!

4.0 out of 5 stars ottime prestazioni e fattura
Reviewed in Italy on September 29, 2018
Il pacco, leggermente ammaccato come in foto, contiene oltre al processore anche la Wraith Spire, moderatamente silenziosa anche grazie a un surriscaldamento molto basso. La versione 2600X performa molto bene con tutta la suite Adobe, con ottime velocità di rendering grafiche e video. Ottime prestazioni, ovviamente, anche in situazioni che non richiedono l'uso intensivo della CPU come multitasking o gaming.

Il mio setup include:
- Motherboard Asus prime B450M-K. Una mATX il cui BIOS non ha dato problemi di compatibilità, e anzi ha permesso un settaggio minuzioso delle velocità e threshold (punti limite, insomma) della ventola. In foto anche il 2600X montato su una mobo Gigabyte GA-AX370-Gaming 3;
- GPU Gigabyte Radeon RX 560 con 4 GB di VRAM;
- RAM 2x8 GB Corsair CMK16GX4M2B3000C15 @ 3000 MHz;
- una SSD Crucial CT250MX500SSD4 da 250 GB, oltre a un HDD Western Digital e altri componenti.

Questo è l'emblema di una compagnia che, nonostante fornisca prezzi più economici della rivale Intel, non dimostra affatto una mancanza di qualità. Se si ha un budget ridotto, magari, si può optare per la versione 2400G e poi prendere una GPU in seguito.
Questo modello, invece, gestisce meglio le velocità di clock per core e ottimizza l'uso dei livelli di cache, non con un cambio nell'architettura ma solo con mirate regolazioni alla dinamica di allocazione. In altre parole, qualità migliore dei predecessori allo stesso prezzo. Consigliato.

5.0 out of 5 stars Massive Beast and runs cooler with Liquid Cooling
Reviewed in India on August 24, 2018
I have been using Core i7 for like 10 years. Motherboard's south bridge chipset got burnt and I had to buy a complete new PC. After reading tons of reviews for a decent gaming processor, I drilled down to this baby. Its been a week and it runs everything that I throw at it. There are so many motherboards available for this, but I went with Asus Prime X470 Pro. A decent second gen Mobo for X series Unlocked Ryzen Processors.

Pros :
Stock Cooler was quite and temperatures were in range from 53 to 75. But I went with Corsair H100i V2 Liquid Cooler and now my temps remain in 34-50 range. Auto Boost is available and enuff space to Overclock. Since this is the X version, it supports DDR4 speeds upto 3400ish.

Cons :
AMD could have given the RGB Cooler with this CPU since this is the flagship at Ryzen 5 Level.

Final verdict : If you are looking for a decent gaming processor then this one is a beast. Save some money from buying i7 8700k or 2700x and buy a good liquid cooler to pair with this baby
