AMD's Ryzen 5 2500U sports 4 cores and 8 threads with Radeon Vega 8 Integrated Graphics. The 4 cores and 8 threads is standard amongst new laptops with processors such as the i5-8250U from the blue team. What stands out is the powerful Vega 8 Graphics.It is about 50-100% better than the the i5-8250U's UHD 620 graphics, meaning it can be used for some light gaming on the go. However, despite the powerful specs on paper, adoption of AMD Ryzen mobile processors has been really slow, with very few models out there. Hopefully, AMD's 7nm mobile APU coming in 2019 will see more widespread adoption. [Aug '18 geistrucker]

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]
