The unbelievable move by AMD from today is a price drop on Ryzen 5 2600X with Hexa Core and 12 Thread. This gem comes with 3 months Xbox Game Pass in a bundle. Originally, $260 MSRP price tag had been given to it last year. Now, whopping $100 was cut from official MSRP and making it cost only $159.99 including decent copper filled cooler which is Wraith Spire.
The Non-X version by the name just Ryzen 5 2600 is less effective on overclocking frequency compared to a superior bigger brother by the ending name with X. Most probably, X version is a better binned 12nm chip that is carefully selected for heavy overclocking. AMD did their best to deliver this CPU to the gaming and streaming world by including 16MB level 3 cache in order to handle most difficult daily tasks. In terms of entertainment performance wise, Ryzen 5 2600X easily gets a pass over Intel Core i5-9400F Hexa Core without “Hyperthreading” feature that pulls back the performance in modern gaming titles. Besides that, rendering and productivity workloads are preferably well executed by Ryzen 5 2600X in a shorter time than i5-9400F. On top of that, if you are a hardcore fan of Minecraft PC game, then, here is the best chance to get the nice satisfaction for 3 months from Microsoft Xbox Game Pass after getting Ryzen 5 2600X beast. Now is the right time to get this chip after long waiting. Grab AMD Ryzen 5 2600X Processor with Wraith Spire Cooler and receive 3 months Xbox Game Pass.
