First full review of AMD Ryzen 5 1600

Published by


Website El Chapuzas Informatico posted a review on the Ryzen 5 1600 processor. The Ryzen 5 1600 is a six-core, twelve-threades processor that has a Turbo clock 400 MHz under Ryzen 5 1600X and would be priced 250 Euro.

The motherboard used does not yet have the new firmware latency optimizations that will be released next week, hence the results would be a little off. The gents at ECI feel that that Ryzen 5 1600 is not as good as Intel in most games, also they mention that most 2400 MHz+ memory kits were incompatible with their motherboard.

They used the following specs:

  • 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

We are posting a review on that motherboard tomorrow and can confirm that MSI still has got a lot of work to do on their memory support. Below the results, courtesy of ElChapuzasInformatico.
