will it give me better performance than the 2600 single channel because benchmarks show that the 2600 gives around a 30fps increase from the 1600 but I also know ryzen need dual channel for best results.

they should be about equal

how much % is that? 2nd gen Ryzen is only 5% better than 1st gen Ryzen when clock speeds are matched. Even after taking the extra oc headroom into account the 2600 is still only 10% faster. Besides, with single channel memory most of that performance gap will be gone.

Hey guys,

So I have decided to upgrade my ryzen 3 1200 to a ryzen 5 processor. My current specs are:

Ryzen 3 1200 oc 3.7ghz

gtx 1060 6gb

8gb single channel ram 2667

550W psu

 

Since I wanna play the latest releasing titles such as battlefield 5 and anthem I need a cpu upgrade. My question is should I get a ryzen 5 1600 and another stick of 8gb ram or should I buy only the ryzen 5 2600 and upgrade the ram at a later date.

In India here the difference in pricing of the cpus is so great that it allows me to buy another stick of ram therefore I cant get the ryzen 5 2600 and another stick.
