    "If you don’t need eight cores, AMD offers the 6c12t Ryzen 5 1600X" I think you mean 2600X?

    Also worth noting that (afaik) Ryzen 2 comes with precision boost 2, XFR 2, and reduced L2 latency (or at least the latency Zen was designed to have when it launched (Zen 2 fixes a problem with the original Zen L2 latency being higher than designed, 17 cycles to 12))

    Nice to see the (relatively) kickass cooler coming with the top part, and presumably greater efficiency on the 2600 (hence the drop to Stealth?)

    Very nice, what exactly are the differences between the 2600 and 2600X? It seems like you gain 200 MHz clock with the 2600X but with a 40W higher TDP.

    These processors have the numbers 2600 and 2700, so they must be at least as awesome as the last set of processors numbered 2600 and 2700 or else all is lost.

    The 2700 sounds potentially fantastic for a new work PC, if it's reasonably efficient and doesn't chuck out too much heat all the better.
