Neoseeker tested out the 4 core Ryzen 5 1400 and 6 core 1600 model to see how they stack up against other lower cost processors. They ran the tests at the highest stable overclock they could reach, interestingly both were able to hit a 3.8 GHz base clock, paired with DDR4-2400. The processors were cooled with AMD's Wraith Max cooler so it is possible to push these CPUs further if you are willing to overvolt. Drop by to see how these two processor match up to the competition.
"The two AMD processors for review today are the newest budget offerings of the Ryzen 5 series with the Ryzen 1400 and 1600 models. The Ryzen 1400 is a four core/eight thread and the Ryzen 1600 is a six core/twelve thread processor, with both having a base operating speed of 3.2 GHz. The boost clock for the Ryzen 1400 is 3.4 GHz while the Ryzen 1600 is able to boost to 3.6 GHz."

Why are so many people
Why are so many people benchmarking with such slow ram?
Someone could argue that
Someone could argue that reviews should be done at stock speeds, with no overclocking. I know that I was not happy looking at reviews of Intel overclocked CPUs, against other models from both Intel and AMD.
But then, half of the test
But then, half of the test done are overclocked.
What is weird is it start with an obscure benchmark that show the i3 7300 creaming the XFR 4.1ghz 8core 1800x
And the guy overclock results make no sense on the AMD side of things.
This is all very questionable.
IF you’re buying the lowest
IF you’re buying the lowest Ryzen 5 there is a point where you probably also aren’t spending extra for faster RAM. The 1600/1600X though imo are definitely likely to be paired with faster 2933/3200 RAM..
The 1600 turns out to be the
The 1600 turns out to be the best selling model, if we take the numbers from mindfactory.de as accurate and assume that things are not really much different in most other markets. Germans do have pretty nice salaries to be able to buy any Ryzen model, which I think makes this sample a good sample for quick statistics.
Long term I think the R7 1700
Long term I think the R7 1700 is a better value then the 1600
r7 1700 is like $307 (amazon), $220 for the R5 1600.
Getting 33% more compute for $87, knowing both CPU will overclock to about the same, is worth it.
The RGB wraith being just a bonus with the 1700 🙂
Probably, but many have a
Probably, but many have a ceiling in their minds, about how much they are willing to pay for a specific piece of hardware, that they will never ever pass. For those, the 1600 is probably a dream come true, after waiting for 5 years Intel to drop prices and that never happening. People who don’t mind paying $300 or more, probably had already bought an i7 in those last years. Those will go to a 1700 or 1700X probably when feeling they need to upgrade or a Threadripper, or just buy Intel again because they are addicted to that brand.
I’d just like to add it
I’d just like to add it depends on what you use the CPU for. If you are a user who wants the highest possible single thread performance with good MT performance — the 1600X at least guarantees the highest clocks out of the box (4.1 GHz XFR), while still providing very decent MT performance…
Out of the box, R5 1600X’s ST performance is about 10% higher. R7 1700’s MT performance is 15-25% faster (3.0-3.7×8 vs 3.6-4.0×6 speeds).
That said.. the R7 1700 is a smoking deal. I hope Zen 2 improves on this foundation.

Posting AMD articles for the sake of it? Even to the novice you can see the benchmark is done wrong. Maybe PCPER is trolling or something.
