Average Bench: 86.8% (33rd of 981)

Based on 16,091 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]

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.

The zen architecture was a great surprise to anyone in this industry. And yes, I know. The Ryzen 5 1600 is better option money wise. But I already have an aftermarket cooler, can afford it and want to see how far can be OC-ed. Right now. I will go and enjoy my middle end processor. And write down how much I appreciate competition between hardware manufactures.
