Average Bench: 81.3% (42nd of 980)

Based on 31,939 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F11 Model: AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Six-Core Processor

The Ryzen 5 1600 is one of four new Ryzen 5 processors released this month. Based on the AMD Zen architecture, which is comparable to Intel in terms of IPC, the Ryzen 5 1600 has six cores which is more than the vast majority of games are able to use (most games cannot use more than four cores). Ryzen 5 CPUs offer gamers better value for money than the eight core Ryzen 7 models released last month. With six cores the 1600 is approximately 75% better at multi-threaded tasks than Intel's quad core i5 flagship – the similarly priced i5-7600K, the 1600 however, has 25% lower single and 33% lower quad core scores. The 1600 has stock base/boost clock speeds of 3.2/3.6 GHz and its price tag of $219 includes a cooler. Assuming a modest overclock of 10% brings the 1600 within striking range of the 1600X which is the Ryzen 5 flagship. The 1600X sports stock base/boost clocks of 3.6/4.0 GHz but costs $30 more than the 1600 and ships without a cooler included in the box. The Ryzen 5 1600 is the best value for money six core CPU we have seen to date. [Apr '17 CPUPro]

Very nice price can be overclocked to 4.0 ghz as long as you keep temperature cool and guaranteed overclock to 3.8 for all chips id say is the same version of 1700 but has 2 cores disabled i heard dosnt use alot of wattage you get the best performance/price also uses a hyper threading that improves its performance alot something Intel dosnt use in their CPUS alot in the end id call it a WIN - WIN for a 199$ also for those who prefer expensive intel CPUS id recommend you check how fast this Ryzen 5 1600 goes works with 3200 mhz ram its almost 15 - 35% increase in performance the am4 motherboards like the for example MSI Tomahawk b350 are really super good with it and comes at cheap price if you want a cool medium-budget cpu for super high performance this is the one for you
