AMD’s second coming with the Ryzen family has certainly got Intel’s feathers ruffled. So much that we’ve started seeing a successor coming in from Team Blue with 8-cores and 16-threads. The Ryzen 5 2600 is a good competitor in the mid-range segment given its pricing and performance gain over the previous generation. Its closest competitor, the Core i5-8500 is at a disadvantage because it lacks multi-threading. This makes it a no-brainer to get the Ryzen 5 2600, especially given that AMD has improved upon its gaming performance. Intel and AMD are both matched in terms of config prices now that Intel has launched the budget-friendly H370 boards. So if you look at performance, pricing or feature set, we’re looking at Intel being on the back foot except in one domain - the IGP. AMD does have the 2400G to make up for that but then it loses out on compute performance. So if you’re going to be buying a graphics card, then the Ryzen 5 2600 becomes your go-to CPU but if you’re short on budget or wish to postpone your graphics card purchase then the Intel i5-8500 becomes the obvious choice.
