Some interesting finds in the Geekbench Benchmark Database, showing almost 10% more performance on Zen+ side compared to the older Zen generation, the Ryzen 5 2600 seems to be more efficient due small architecture changes and optimizations.
|Ryzen 5 1600||Ryzen 5 2600|
|Technique||Summit Ridge (Zen), 14nm, 6C +SMT, 3 MB L2 & 16 MB L3||Pinnacle Ridge (Zen+), 12nm, 6C +SMT, 3 MB L2 & 16 MB L3||Minimal Architecture improvements|
|Speed||3.2/3.6 GHz + XFR||3.4/3.8 GHz + XFR||+200 MHz Base-Clock and Turbo|
|Geekbench 4 SingleThread||4037||4269||+5,7%|
|Geekbench 4 MultiThread||18420||20102||+9,1%|
Compared to the old Ryzen 1600, the results looking already very promising you get more speed and the costs are sinking due the 12nm process. I can’t say much more to the news here because it needs some more time, remember that AMD needs to release some updates for their chipset drivers, and some OEM’s need to release new BIOS versions to get the best possible performance but overall it really looks good and AMD once again showed that there back.
