AMD Ryzen 5 2600X vs AMD Ryzen 5 3580U

AMD Ryzen 5 2600X

► remove AMD 2600X

The AMD Ryzen 5 2600X is a high-end desktop processor with 6 cores (12 threads) that was announced early 2018. It is based on the revised Zen+ cores and at launch the second fastest Ryzen CPU behind the Ryzen 7 2700X. The CPU cores clock at 3.6 GHz base and using Precision Boost 2 up to 4.2 GHz. All 6 cores and 12 threads can clock up to 3.9 GHz. The 6 cores are divided in two cluster (3 cores each with own L3 cache) connected via Infinity Fabric.

Compared to the older first Ryzen generation (e.g., Ryzen 5 1600X), the second generation is manufactured in an improved process (12nm called), offers and improved Precision Boost 2 (especially in partial load of the cores) and faster cache and memory speeds.

See our second generation Ryzen review for detailed benchmarks and information.

AMD Ryzen 5 3580U

► remove

The AMD Ryzen 5 3580U (Microsoft Surface Edition) is a mobile SoC that was announced in October 2019 as part of the Surface Book 15. It combines four Zen+ cores (8 threads) clocked at 2.2 - 3.8 GHz with a Radeon RX Vega 9 graphics card with 9 CUs (576 Shaders) clocked at up to 1300 MHz. Specified at 15 Watt TDP, the SoC is intended for thin mid-range laptops. Compared to the similar Ryzen 5 3500U, the 3580 integrates a faster GPU with 9 instead of 8 CUs.

The Picasso SoCs use the Zen+ microarchitecture with slight improvements that should lead to a 3% IPS (performance per clock) improvements. Furthermore, the 12nm process allows higher clock rates at similar power consumptions.

The integrated dual-channel memory controller supports up to DDR4-2400 memory. As the features of the Picasso APUs are the same compared to the Raven Ridge predecessors, we point to our Raven Ridge launch article.

As the Ryzen 5 3580U CPU specification is identical to the Ryzen 5 3500U, the processor performance should be similar. AMD states that the Picasso APUs are about 8% faster than the predecessors. Therefore, the Ryzen 5 3500U and 3580U should be ahead the Ryzen 5 2500U (2 - 3.6 GHz) and nearly on par with the Ryzen 7 2700U (2.2 - 3.8 GHz).
