Average Bench: 87.3% (31st of 980)

Based on 10,720 user benchmarks.  Device: 178BFBFF00800F11 Model: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Six-Core Processor

The Ryzen 5 1600X is the flagship processor from AMD's latest generation of Ryzen 5 processors which feature the Zen architecture. Following on from last month's release of the Ryzen 7 series, the Ryzen 5 series is positioned as a less expensive mid-performance alternative to Intel's i5 mainstream offerings. Once again, AMD excels in multi-core technology. Like the Ryzen 5 1600, the 1600X features 6 cores and 12 threads, but has roughly 11% higher clock speeds (out of the box) for a 14% premium. Like all Ryzen CPUs the 1600X is unlocked. The 1600X is the only Ryzen 5 CPU with a TDP of 95W, the 1600, 1500X and 1400 all have 50% lower power consumption of 65W. Due to its high thread count, UserBenchmarks show that at stock clocks the 1600X outperforms the i7-7700k on multi-threaded tasks by 23%, but it lags behind by 23% for single and 14% for quad-core performance. The 1600X is priced keenly at $249 so a more appropriate CPU comparison is the i5-7600k where the 1600X wins on stock multi-core by a whopping 81%. The 1600X does represent great value for workstation users that also game but its $30 cheaper sibling, the 1600 (non x version), which includes a cooler and has great overclocking potential out of the box is arguably the the value king in this segment. [Apr '17 CPUPro]

It's a great High-mid range CPU with a lot of bang for buck. It can do anything you throw at it and it can, with a little tweaking do a lot more. It's comfortable middle ground for gamers and editors where the price is not ridiculous and the performance isn't poor.

Excellent CPU for various tasks including gaming. It's faster than any i5 on the market, beast the i7 7700K in most applications as well as in a few games. This is the absolute "best buy" CPU for people building a powerful multipurpose PC.

Personally i love mine now it's just a waiting game for the prices to drop in gfx cards so i can finish my rebuild. I was able to get its real life performance faster than the avg i7 7700 and just a tad behind the avg 7700k in single thread and quad thread with a way bigger lead in multi core. Runs fast, runs smooth, games great and never notice any kind of lag or bogging down of any type.
