    Default AMD Ryzen 5 1600X and 1500X CPU Review

    Introduction AMD has officially shaken up the CPU market in a great way with Ryzen. While I know some of you wanted to see Intel brought to their knees with every single benchmark, the reality is we now have a clear picture of what the strengths and weaknesses are in the industry. Single-thread performance has certainly improved well over the past 5 years, but quality measures and multi-threaded ceilings needed a shot in the arm. The Ryzen 7 series does an amazing job of opening up professional performance to a wider audience of PC buyers. That leaves us answering the question of exactly how Ryzen 5 fits in the market.

    In fact, we’re only going to worry about tackling that question in this review. I’ve been squeezing everything I can in trying to complete review content, but life is catching up with me and I have to slow my pace down slightly. There’s just too many fun things to test and not enough time to do it, at least in fast of a time frame as I would like. While this focus will be on Ryzen 5 performance, I’ll be adding two more reviews*down the road with one focusing solely on the newly designed Wraith Coolers performance and another focused entirely on overclocking guides and performance for the Ryzen 7 and 5 lineups. Let’s begin with a look into the philosophy behind AMD’s CPU designs, then we’ll start looking at the details of the 1600X and 1500X. *

    Back in the day I was a very big AMD fan
    I wish I had a good enough reason to switch to RYZEN right now but I don't!
    I am perfectly happy with my current system build, but if I were to switch
    it would be to the RYZEN 7 1800 3.7

    I keep three gaming machines around here.
    So I just gave away (to one of my sons) one of my X99 boxes and I'm building a Ryzen 1700X box tomorrow.
    I can't wait.

    I went from the FX-8350 to the Ryzen 5 1600X and I am blown away by how fast this chip is and how well it performs in games!
