Great price. Unbelievable what Intel must be feeling. 10 years and we gave the customers a 100MHz increase every year and they were happy and now AMD comes and spoils it all.

I bought an i5-8400 on Amazon for £145 over a year ago and as I wanted an iGPU Intel was the only choice.
If I was buying now I'd be looking at the Ryzen 2700 deals as paying £5 less for a CPU lacking an iGPU over a year later doesn't seem much of a deal.

Still running on my old but trusty i5-2500K

I upgraded to a ryzen from i7 2600 and the difference is amazing. The minimum frame rate in games have jumped nearly 60%.

To be fair if you don't need the IGPU you don't actually want it if you can do without.

Nope. It comes down to money, so if I could've got a Ryzen 2700 for £15 more I'd have considered it alongside a very cheap basic dGPU for £20 on top. But it wasn't even released at that point let alone availble at that price.

I was meaning more that there is a technical advantage in ditching it not really.talking about your circumstances on price as I was talking about needing it.
X models aren’t worth it get 2600 or 2700 instead it’s only higher clock speed out of the box which you can increase yourself

The 2600X does have a better cooler in the box plus not everyone likes to overclock.
While a 2600 is better value over all, for some the convenience is worth some extra £ if they want easiness.

Also overclocking disables the auto scaling and you are stuck at the same speed and voltage all the time.

And i tried overclocking the 2600 to see any benefits at 4.1Ghz and in games, it doesnt matter et all with a 1660Ti level card. It stays about the same. Its the architecture that makes the most difference not a few hundred MHz.

So what does the x suffix mean exactly?

It's got a higher clock speed on it from the factory compared to a non-x and also has a better cooler. So if you don't fancy overclocking then the X version is the one you want. If you are ok with overclocking then get the non X version as that will clock to more than the X version but you should also fork out for a better cooler.
