The first Geekbench scores of the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 2600 processor popped up. If these scores are reliable, this "Pinnacle Ridge" chip will be quite a bit faster than the current generation.

The scores indicate 14.5 percent faster single-threaded performance than the Ryzen 5 1600 and 31.5 percent faster multi-threading performance.

AMD's second-gen Ryzen desktop processors are expected to be launched next month. They are made on GlobalFoundries' 12nm node and should offer not only higher performance but also better energy efficiency.
