2600X is better than 2600 …
2600X = 4.2Ghz (with boost) unlocked
2600 = 3.9Ghz (with boost) locked

Like you just said overclocking = unlocked which means The 2600 is unlocked since it has an unlocked multiplier. Its even written in the game requirement analysis but I guess they forget to take away the red X It has an unlocked multiplier, therefore, it can be overclocked using traditional methods

That would sound to be true if AMD's naming policy worked like Intel's…but it doesn't. As far as I know all the Ryzen processors are unlocked.
