AMD Ryzen 5 2600 / Ryzen 7 2700 Ubuntu Linux Benchmarks

Here is a look at the overall CPU temperature over the course of all the Linux CPU benchmarks conducted for this article. The Ryzen 7 2700 had an average CPU temperature of 47 degrees and peak of 58 degrees compared to the Ryzen 7 2700X with a 55 degree average and a peak of 73 degrees. The Core i7 8700K meanwhile had an average 53 degree temperature and 74 degree peak. The Ryzen 5 2600 also came in several degrees cooler on the minimum, average, and peak temperatures compared to the 2600X, as is expected given the TDP differences.

Lastly is a look at the AC system power consumption over the course of all the benchmarks conducted. The Ryzen 5 2600 had an average power draw of 153 Watts with a peak of 405 Watts while the Ryzen 7 2700 had an average power draw of 150 Watts and a peak of 391 Watts. As a reminder, both the 2600 and 2700 Zen+ CPUs have a 65 Watt TDP.

Thanks to the automation and reproducible design of our open-source benchmarking framework, it's super easy to see how your own system compares to the results. All you need to do is install the Phoronix Test Suite on the Linux distribution of your choice and run phoronix-test-suite benchmark 1805161-AR-AMDNEWRYZ10 to carry out your own fully-automated, side-by-side benchmark comparison to the data found in this article. As always, if you enjoy all of my Linux hardware testing, reviews, and open-source benchmark development, consider showing your support by joining Phoronix Premium. Some follow-up tests will begin with some more of the time-consuming benchmarks, different Linux software configurations, and other Zen+ benchmark articles based upon the feedback of the premium supporters.
