Voted hot as this is a great deal
Awesome deal. Runs great in any game or application. No need to spend more et all.
Would this be worth it over the 1600AF now?

Very little difference (particularly if AF is over locked) as price has risen on AF. Best I've seen recently is £92 at CCL, assuming they're still delivering AF version.
My nephew is trying to stream fortnite at 1080p but running into major fps problems with his old i5 2500k and 290 i gave to him. Would the 2600 be good for 1080p streaming?

Yes easily. 50% more cores, triple the threads and 20-25% better IPC than the 2500k.
Thanks, ordered. Any good mother board on offer for this at the moment?

20-25% better IPC? erm,..no.

Check the single thread scores.
The stock 2500K is boosting to 3.7 ghz vs 3.9.. (And the r5 has little headroom left while 2500k's will do 4.4-4.5 ghz)
an overclocked 2500K will beat the snot out of the r5 2600 in single threaded tasks if you overclock both chips, its IPC is actually higher. Not that that would help in new AAA games, cos the r5 is roughly 2+ times the total power when both chips are overclocked. So if you were a fortnite player (not streaming too) the r5 would not be a noticeable upgrade. It wouldnt be 'worse' cos windows has to run somewhere in those threads but anyway,I'm not havin a pop.
The r5 3600 is only ~ 15% higher ipc than the 2500k, if you look at intels chips and do the math with frequency they barely improved ipc at all.

By the way,its now £99.98 pence.
Sorta makes the 1600 AF a non issue..We are talking about 6 quid on a pc build here.

Sorry but that's a load of bs, I've had both chips. Skylake is 30% IPC over sandy bridge, and zen2 is around the same IPC as that.

Zen+ is around haswell/broadwell IPC.

Those comparison websites are the worst. Check literally any single threaded game benchmark to see the 2500k falls into the dust, nevermind multithread games where it stutters at 100% usage.

Maybe you dont understand the term 'Instructions Per Cycle'.
Cycle, .. as in frequency divided by frequency = '1'. work done / frequency = instructions / cycle (X threads)
How much work is done at '1' cycle? I'm afraid you dont know what you are talking about but I can go with it for a bit.
Skylake chip; cpubenchmark.net/cpu…594
3.9ghz. single thread rating 2096
sandy bridge at 3.7 ghz;cpubenchmark.net/cpu…804 single thread rating 1900 (at 200mhz slower) the work done per clock cycle barely moved from 2011 to 2016. and not since.
Intel just slowly unlocked the headroom they kept in the standard frequencies to make out things were being improved.
So do me a favour until you understand what is going on in the cpu world and dont be rude, you are just embarrassing yourself. Particularly with statements like 'single threaded game benchmark'_ HO HO HO, totally out of depth made up b/s.

Mate your still using that bs website, use something else. I know performance didn't improve much from 2011 to 2016 but it's well known skylake is 30% more IPC than sandy bridge, literally Google it.
That website your using is like those stupid gpu compare websites that just compare the specs of the card and ignore the architecture

I will include an actual decent website: anandtech.com/sho…n/9
Sandy Bridge to Ivy Bridge: Average ~5.8% Up
Ivy Bridge to Haswell: Average ~11.2% Up
Haswell to Broadwell: Average ~3.3% Up
Broadwell to Skylake (DDR3): Average ~2.4% Up
Broadwell to Skylake (DDR4): Average ~2.7% Up

Your the one that said zen2 is only 15% more IPC than sandy bridge while using that stupid website. That's just completely wrong.
Or that a 2500k could match zen+/broadwell.

No, I said zen 3000 is only 15% more IPC than sandy bridge, single thread. Do the math.
