AMD Ryzen 5 2600 and Ryzen 7 2700 Review

Blender

Starting the 3D rendering tests with Blender and our custom 1080P and 4K blends and the pattern continues. The Ryzen 5 2600 doesn't quite have enough at stock to really impress and requires an overclock to regain the performance that the 2600X has out of the box, whilst the Ryzen 7 2700 is decent at stock but easily matches its Ryzen 7 2700X brother when overclocked.

haha you couldn't make it up

Well, it seems pretty clear AMD are not sending out cherry picked samples.Quote

I feel this review missed one of the key points with these processors- the 30-40W(~30%>) lower TDP. At 65W these chips will fit basically anywhere and work with basically any cooler without issue, as opposed to the 95-105W of the X variants, this could also mean lower temps or quieter operation with sufficient cooling. These chips will be binned for lower leakage lower in the clock curve as opposed to higher up the curve. This means top-end OCing is gonna be less reliable and the power curve(And required voltage and consumption) might take a much steeper curve upwards than their X counterparts beyond their rated frequency range.

Basically, they're not really meant to just be cheaper versions of their X counterparts- The value of them doesn't come from the minimal loss of performance VS price drop, but from the minimal loss of performance VS TDP/power drop.Quote

For me it comes down to what type of user you are. Buy and leave at stock - get the 2700x. If you're going to get a nice water cooler, then you may as well go for the 2700 and overclock the beans out of it.

I'm really looking forward to Zen 2 on 7nm! That'll be the time I put my 6700k to rest Quote

Another amazing review THX Tom

I'm really pleased to see the performance of these CPU's and the X versions. I'm really tempted to buy a new setup (need a new graphics card anyways) but the idea of threadripper is still in the back of my mind I do like to work with my VM's but I'm guessing they should be able to give me the performance I'm in need of.

Who knows we might end up seeing Intel forced to lower their prices a bit Quote

So it seems like, given the same cooling, the 2700 OC runs COOLER with HIGHER voltages and slightly lower clocks?? And it performs better??

7C is a heck of a difference, that's amazing. Quick question though: So there is no way to get XFR to work on this at stock, but is there a way to swap profiles while in windows?

Coming from a 2600k, I have to swap profiles in the bios to do this, so I was just wondering if Ryzen master had that solution.

Thanks!

@Giggyolly: What about a high end air cooler, such as a Nh-d15? Would it still be worth OCing with such an air cooler? Thanks!Quote
