2600 vs 2600x questions.

 Share

Debating between 2600 for $190 and 2600x $250. $60 difference. (In Canada)

 

I'm not going to OC. I want to set it up and call it a day.

I know the 2600x is better for not OCing.

 

2600 3.4 base and 3.9 boost

2600x 3.6 base and 4.2 boost

 

Does the 2600 auto boost itself to 3.9 on stock cooler? I'm quite okay with 3.9 if I don't have to fiddle with anything.

 

Other than the extra speed, does it have feature that the non x don't have?

 

I'm mainly using this for gaming.

They're pretty much the same CPU. Except the 2600X is more expensive and doesn't have a cooler.

no it doesnt, It usually stays between 3.4 to 3.7, depending on the workload.

Precision boost and XFR, call them the dumb auto OC tool.

yes, you will only go as far as turbo clocks go.

For that price difference, no, not worth it I think. The 2600X is only like 10% faster out of the box, but you would be paying 30% more.

 

If 10% more speed is worth it to you, then yes. If you look at the overall price of a PC, $60 is likely less than 10% of your PC budget, so in that sense, it is worth it.
