AMD Ryzen 5 2600 and ASUS ROG Crosshair VII Hero spotted

This might be the new Ryzen 2000 desktop processor.

AMD Ryzen 5 2600

A new engineering sample has been spotted at SiSoft website. The sample goes by a codename of ZD2600BBM68AF_38/34_Y and it features higher clock than its predecessor.  While the ZD means it’s a desktop processor, the rest does not necessarily mean it’s Ryzen 5 2600 (it may be just a coincidence to be listed as ZD2600).

If the data presented at SiSoft website is correct, then the new Ryzen 5 2600 processor would be 200 MHz faster than Ryzen 5 1600.

The BB value in the codename means it’s a 65W TDP processor. According to SiSoft, the CPU is 6-core and 12-thread CPU.

The sample has been tested on new ASUS motherboard, a new iteration of Crosshair series. The model goes by a name Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi), not much is known about this motherboard as of yet, but we will keep you updated. The Crosshair VI Hero was quite a popular choice among Ryzen adopters, so we are interested in hearing about potential new features.
