Our friends from El Chapuzas Informatico bring world’s first review of Ryzen 5 processor.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 review

The Ryzen 5 1600 is the six-core, twelve-thread CPU with turbo clock 400 MHz under Ryzen 5 1600X. This CPU is also much cheaper (250 vs 285 EUR) than faster six-core Ryzen, but is it just as good? I included most charts from their review here (in case they go missing, although it seems unlikely).

Testing platform:

  • MSI X370 XPower Gaming Titanium
  • G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 3600 MHz @ 2400 MHz
  • MSI GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming Z
  • Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 11 1200W
  • SSD Kingston SSDNow KC400 128 GB
  • SSD Corsair LX 512 GB
  • Windows 10 64 bit

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 overclocked to 3900 MHz

According to ElChapuzas the idle temperature of AMD Wraith cooler is around 39C and 62-65C under full load. They managed to overclock this processor to 3892 MHz at 1.36V, which is just around what 1600X can offer.

The guys over at ECI concluded that Ryzen 5 1600 is not as good as Intel in most games (although they only tested GTX 1070), also they mention that most 2400 MHz+ memory kits were incompatible with their motherboard, which means there’s still some work to do. On the plus side, we have a good stock cooler and low power consumption.
