The SiSoft hardware database is often a treasure trove of information, with data of upcoming hardware frequently coming to light due to careless use of the company’s benchmarking tools. 

What appears to be an AMD Ryzen 5 (2nd Generation) 2600 CPU has been listed on the benchmarking database, under the Result ID ZD2600BBM68AF_38/34_Y, which makes this processor appear as a desktop model with six cores, twelve threads, a base clock speed of 3400MHz and a boost clock speed of 3.8GHz. This CPU engineering sample is expected to act as a replacement for AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600, offering 200MHz increases to both its base and boost clock speeds.

At this time it is unknown if this engineering sample offers the same specifications as AMD’s final shipping models, or how Precision Boost 2 and XFR effect this product’s performance. The BB value in this CPU ID indicates that it has a 65W TDP, just like the Ryzen 5 1600. 

Alongside this CPU a motherboard called the ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero has also been listed, an apparent successor to the Crosshair VI Hero, one of the Ryzen platform’s most popular motherboards at launch. This motherboard is expected to utilise an X470 chipset and deliver users some features that were missing from its last-generation counterpart.

It appears that even AMD’s Ryzen 2nd Generation low-TDP parts will be able to offer boost clock speeds of 3.8GHz, which hopefully means that overage overclocks will improve with this new generation of products. If AMD’s hypothetical 2600X also provides a boost of 200MHz its boost clock speeds should be around 4.2GHz without XFR, which is excellent news for those who wanted additional sing;e-threaded CPU performance. 

You can join the discussion on AMD’s Ryzen 2600 CPU and Crosshair VII Hero motherboard on the OC3D Forums.
