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.
