    Ryzen 2600 vs 2600X

    I hear to simply purchase the 2600 as the 2600X is nothing more than an overclocked 2600, is this true?

    The 2600 has a lower base clock at stock but can be overclocked to near the overclocking potential of the 2600x. The 2600x has a higher boost with the automatic overclock and does not gain that much from extra overclock tweaking. But from what I have seen the 2600x does still have a tiny bit more overclocking headroom.

    One is 65w part, one is 95w part. Latter gives you a little more headroom.

    With the X there isn't much point overclocking. More important is to make sure you have adequate cooling.

    I am in the same position wondering which one to get, but as I have seen that AMD are going to be bundling the X with the max cooler might just sway me to the X

    2600 is certainly offering the best bang for buck at the moment. Everywhere seems to be pending stock too.

    1700 is currently around the same price at the moment, depends if you want it for gaming or productivity.

    1700 isn't much more, if you value the 2 extra cores for productivity.

    2600 is best in my opinion. The 2600x is also a good choice but you can overclock the 2600 a fair bit to reach the 2600x speed and looking at the price to performance 2600 looks like the best and clear choice to choose for your build.

    Re: Ryzen 2600 vs 2600X

    I have got the Ryzen 2600 since last year. On the overclocking front, each chip is different. Mine does give about 3.9GHz all cores but the performance benefit in gaming at 1440p is negligible. So i would imagine upgrading to a 2600x is pointless.
