AMD will be launching their second-generation Ryzen processors later this year, with a tease surfacing on the upcoming Ryzen 5 2600 that will succeed the current-gen Ryzen 5 1600 processor.


In some leaked Geekbench results, the Pinnacle Ridge-based Ryzen 5 2600 is 14.5% faster than the Ryzen 5 1600 in the single-threaded test, and a huge 31.5% faster in the multi-threaded benchmark.


AMD will get more performance out of Pinnacle Ridge before it hits consumers, but if these results are right we could be in for quite the surprise with the next wave of Ryzen CPUs.
