In the lab: AMD's Ryzen 5 1600 and Ryzen 5 1400 CPUs


— 3:14 PM on May 2, 2017

Testing of AMD's Ryzen 5 CPUs and friends continues apace in the TR labs, but one of the reasons you haven't seen our productivity benchmarks yet is that AMD offered to send over a couple more CPUs for us to put through our testing gauntlet. Say hello to the Ryzen 5 1600 and the Ryzen 5 1400.

For a refresher, here's how these non-X CPUs fit into the Ryzen 5 lineup:

Model Cores Threads Base clock Boost clock L3 cache XFR TDP Price
Ryzen 5 1600X 6 12 3.6 GHz 4.0 GHz 16MB Yes 95W $249
Ryzen 5 1600 3.2 GHz 3.6 GHz 65W $219
Ryzen 5 1500X 4 8 3.5 GHz 3.7 GHz $189
Ryzen 5 1400 3.2 GHz 3.4 GHz 8MB $169

We're excited to begin testing these parts as soon as we can. Stay tuned to see how the performance of AMD's budget six-core, 12-thread and four-core, eight-thread parts shake out.
