AMD Ryzen 5 1600X and 1500X Review

Many people are curious about how the 1600X and 1500X processes developed by the United States-based AMD perform. We will answer the curious question with the AMD Ryzen 1600X and AMD Ryzen 1500X review.

After AMD’s Ryzen 7 processors, Ryzen 5 processors soon became the focus of attention. Users who were planning to collect gaming PCs in Turkey had their eyes on Ryzen 5 processors because this processor family included processors with a very high price/performance ratio.


In this review article, we will examine the 6-core Ryzen 5 1600X and 4-core Ryzen 5 1500X processors in detail and compare the benchmark performance with Intel’s 4-core i7 6700K processor. Finally, we will make our general evaluation.

As can be seen, the i7 6700K is the processor with the highest core frequency. Overclocking can be done with this processor with the processor multiplier turned on. All of AMD’s Ryzen processors come with processor multipliers turned on, so you can push them all above their default speeds.

Also, the Ryzen processors in our test feature XFR. In other words, these processors automatically increase the core speeds depending on the efficiency of your cooling solution and can exceed the boost frequencies.

What Does AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Offer?

The 1600X, which has gained huge popularity worldwide, comes with six cores that can run on 12 threads. The processor, which has 16 MB L3 cache and 3.6 Ghz frequency, can go up to 4.0 Ghz. 

The 1600X is an impressive processor that manages to outperform some Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. So much so that the processor, located in the middle segment, managed to score 1232 points in Cinebench R15. Thus, it surpassed the Intel Core i5 7600K and the Intel Core i7-6800K processors with 1153 points. 

Launched in the second quarter of 2017, the 1600X has a TDP of 95. Supporting technologies such as AMD Ryzen Master Utility, Enmotus FuzeDrive, XFR (Extended Frequency Range), AVX2 and AMD SenseMI, the distance between the transistors of the processor is 14 nm. Designed to run on the AM4 chipset, the processor supports DDR4 RAM.


The system, which includes a 1600X processor, GTX 1080 Ti graphics card and 16 GB DDR4 RAM, achieved an average of 40 FPS at 1440p, or QHD resolution, in the video game Total War: Atilla, released in 2015.

In Rise of the Tomb Raider, 1600X got an average of 59 FPS at 1440p resolution. We see that the 1600X processor also performs well in games. The 1600X processor managed to score 5581 points in the 3dMark benchmark test.

What Does AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Offer?

It has a 4-core structure and operates at a frequency of 1500X 3.5 Ghz. The frequency of the processor can go up to 3.7 Ghz. Considering this, we see that the processor offers a slightly lower frequency speed than the 1600X. The 1500X has 16MB of L3 cache just like the 1600X.

The 1600X processor is designed to run on the AM4 chipset, just like the 1500X. The distance between the transistors of the processor, which has a TDP of 65, is 14 nm. Developed with AMD Zen processor architecture, the processor supports technologies such as AMD Ryzen Master Utility, AVX2, Extended Frequency Range, Emmotus FuzeDrive.

The processor supporting DDR4 RAM managed to score 896 points in the single-core test and 3576 points in the multi-core test. The processor, which was released in the first quarter of 2017, scored 341 points in Cinebench R20 and 7403 points in the 3dMark benchmark test.

The 1500x performs better in video games at 1080p resolution compared to some similarly priced Intel processors. Therefore, this processor attracts attention by players looking for an affordable processor.


The 1500X and 1600X processors developed by AMD became the focus of attention around the world after their release. The affordable price structure made these processors quite ambitious.

The 1500X and 1600X processors stand out with their affordable structures and performance. Most people who want to build computers consider the 1600X and 1500X processors for the same reason. Both processors are quite successful, but the 1600X, which can reach a frequency of 4.0 Ghz, is in a slightly better condition compared to the other processor.
