Is it worth waiting for the new ryzen cpu that will be launched in a couple months by amd? I keep hearing that it will be a bang for the buck and the performance would be really fkin good for the price. Since ima start building my rig soon and was gonna go for a intel i5 8600k. Rumours are rumours though, they arent 100% true and I aint sure whether to take the risk. Its either the ryzen 5 2600 or the intel i5 8600k. btw my gpu is a gtx 2060.

2600. The X is just a mild factory overclock all 2600's can reach.
