Reviews

AnandTech

On performance, for anyone wanting to do intense CPU work, the Ryzen gets a nod here. ... For e-Sports, and most games based on DX9 or DX11, the Intel CPU is still a win here.

TechRadar

The AMD Ryzen 5 1600X isn't a just an affordable chip for gamers and media creators, it an incredible package that puts multi-core computing on the mainstream map.

tom's hardware

Ryzen 5 1600X provides a tremendous price-to-performance ratio for budget workstations, rivaling Core i7-6800K. It also facilitates playable performance in games (though it still lags Kaby Lake-based Core i5s more often than not).

GameSpot

The bottom line is you get great bang-for-the-buck performance for most video and image processing tasks and a competent gaming CPU.

PCWorld

It’s pretty hard to pass up the incredible performance the Ryzen 5 1600X offers, especially as we move into a world where more cores and more threads are expected to matter.
