Designed for high multiprocessing performance for games and creators, the Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz Six-Core AM4 Processor from AMD has a base clock speed of 3.6 GHz and a maximum turbo frequency of 4.2 GHz. A member of AMD's 2nd generation of Ryzen processors, this processor features six cores with twelve threads in an AM4 socket with 3MB of L2 cache memory and 16MB of L3 cache memory. Having six cores allows the processor to run multiple programs simultaneously without slowing down the system, while the twelve threads allow a basic ordered sequence of instructions to be passed through or processed by a single CPU core. This processor also has a TDP of 95W.
Graphically, the Ryzen 5 2600X 3.6 GHz Six-Core AM4 Processor does not contain any integrated graphics, meaning that users will need to purchase a dedicated graphics card of their choice. It is also unlocked, meaning it can be overclocked past its maximum turbo frequency. However, this is not recommended, as it will cause the processor to run much hotter. This CPU includes a Wraith Spire 95W cooler and is protected by a limited 3-year warranty.
