Benchmarks of the AMD Ryzen 5 2600’s single and multi-core performance have leaked online, a month after we reported on the CPU’s purported specifications list.
Codenamed Pinnacle Ridge, the CPU benchmarks showed up on the popular benchmarking site GeekBench. The single-core performance of AMD’s still-unreleased CPU sits at 4,269, while its multi-core performance holds a score of 20,102. To put those numbers into context; we’re looking at single-core performance that is more or less on par with the Ryzen 5 1600X, and approximately 10% better multi-core performance compared to the same CPU.
Further, if you take a look at the processor information, the number of cores, threads and base clockspeed of the CPU lines up nicely with what we previously reported.
Pinnacle Ridge is reported to be based on AMD’s new 12nm die lithography, with better power efficiency and performance gains than its 14nm Ryzen predecessor (i.e. the current Ryzen series CPUs).
AMD has yet to announce the Ryzen 5 2600 officially, let alone provided an official launch date. However, it is very likely that the CPU will be release sometime during or after April, which is the when AMD’s new Ryzen 2000 series CPUs will be arriving on the market.
