AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor Review

Head on over to MadShrimps today and check out their review of the AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor.

The Ryzen 5 1600 CPU does arrive with notably lower core clocks and 30W lower TDP versus its 1600X brother, all other technical specifications remaining the same. While we can see a small performance drop with the Ryzen 5 1600, both CPUs seem to share similar overclock margins on AIO water cooling; however, we did manage to achieve 3.9GHz at a considerably higher voltage than on the 1600X, which tells us that the more expensive SKU did belong from a more capable batch.
