Pros

Six cores & 12 threads for half the price of Intel's similarly outfitted Core i7-6800K; consistently topped pricier bộ vi xử lý Core i7-7700K on tests that take advantage of all available cores; cooler included in the box (unlike with the Ryzen 5 1600X)

Six cores & 12 available computing threads for not much more than $200: That"s what AMD"s Ryzen 5 1600 processor is all about. And on paper at least, it"s a very appealing proposition when you consider Intel"s similarly outfitted six-core bộ vi xử lý Core i7-6800K costs about twice that much ($440 or so, when we wrote this in late May 2017). In short, video clip editors or digital media creators on a tight budget who want khổng lồ cut rendering times should put this chip on their short danh mục for their next build. That"s especially true if you"re not the type who wants to lớn fuss with overclocking and aftermarket coolers.

Running at stoông xã cloông xã speeds of 3.2GHz (base) và 3.6GHz (boost), the Ryzen 5 1600 is no slouch at less core-intensive tasks, as well. And like all Ryzen CPUs, it"s unlocked for overclocking. So the skilled & the patient will likely be able to lớn push it closer khổng lồ the 4GHz or 4.1GHz that seems lớn be the general limit (without exotic cooling methods like liquid nitrogen) that we"ve sầu seen when testing other Ryzen CPUs.

The issue with overclocking is, if that"s your aim, you"ll probably want to pay extra for an aftermarket cooler, rather than the Wraith Spire cooler that AMD ships in the box with this chip. You may have sầu an existing cooler you"d like to use. But unless you bought it very recently, you"ll need khổng lồ kiểm tra with the manufacturer about getting adapter brackets lớn work with AMD"s new AM4 platsize. Older coolers won"t work out of the box, even if you"ve sầu been extra-scrupulous about keeping all those metal bits that came in the box.

And if you"re going to spover any extra money above the $219 MSRP. of this part, soon you"ll be hitting up against the $249 price point of the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X. That chip has a significantly higher out-of-the box clock tốc độ of 3.6GHz khổng lồ 4GHz, with the ability to lớn clock as high as 4.1GHz with a substantial cooler, thanks to lớn AMD"s Extended Frequency Range (XFR) feature, which we"ll touch on in detail later in this Review. That stepped-up chip is enticing for those who crave even more performance without having to lớn giảm giá with the hassles of overclocking.
