Anyone would agree that the sharp increase in the number of cores in regular desktop processors from four (which was a kind of "the standard" for more than ten years ago ) to eight literally in a couple of years, is the most significant development in this segment. Of course, outside the regular desktop CPU segment, there are still HEDT CPUs with insane numbers of cores and stunning features, like the Threadrippers. However, they are also the most expensive products. And, honestly, many average PC users don’t need that much power. They are designed more to serve professional purposes. Speaking of the average/above average PC user, the Ryzen 5 2600X is probably one of the most popular CPUs to them. Because it is still capable of providing high-performance, including high-end gaming. It means this is a desktop CPU that will easily get along with mid to high range GPUs.
