The i5-7600K targets high end gamers, it sits just behind the flagship i7-7700K in Intel’s Kaby Lake lineup. The 7600K will likely be the most popular gaming CPU of 2017 (some competition from AMD’s upcoming Zen/Ryzen CPUs, would be very welcome). Comparing the 7600K and 6600K shows that the two processors are very closely matched and comparing the 7600K vs the hyper-threaded 7700K highlights the relative strength of the 7700K for workstation performance. There are no significant architectural differences between Kaby Lake and Skylake so, when fully overclocked, the two generations should perform similarly but Kaby Lake offers faster base clocks, improved speed shift technology which helps CPU responsiveness, and better integrated graphics. [Jan '17 CPUPro]

The Ryzen 5 1600 is one of four new Ryzen 5 processors released this month. Based on the AMD Zen architecture, which is comparable to Intel in terms of IPC, the Ryzen 5 1600 has six cores which is more than the vast majority of games are able to use (most games cannot use more than four cores). Ryzen 5 CPUs offer gamers better value for money than the eight core Ryzen 7 models released last month. With six cores the 1600 is approximately 75% better at multi-threaded tasks than Intel's quad core i5 flagship – the similarly priced i5-7600K, the 1600 however, has 25% lower single and 33% lower quad core scores. The 1600 has stock base/boost clock speeds of 3.2/3.6 GHz and its price tag of $219 includes a cooler. Assuming a modest overclock of 10% brings the 1600 within striking range of the 1600X which is the Ryzen 5 flagship. The 1600X sports stock base/boost clocks of 3.6/4.0 GHz but costs $30 more than the 1600 and ships without a cooler included in the box. The Ryzen 5 1600 is the best value for money six core CPU we have seen to date. [Apr '17 CPUPro]

Ryzen 5 review vs. Core i5: Ryzen 5 1600X wins for best mainstream power CPU

AMD’s $250 Ryzen 5 1600X is here to challenge Intel’s quad-core, $250 Core i5-7600K for the honor of being “The People’s CPU.” Everyone likes to read about expensive, gold-plated, $1,000 parts, but in the real world, most people can’t or won’t spend that much and are looking for the best price-to-performance ratio. 

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Processor

While Ryzen 5 1600X may not have clock speeds as high as the Core i5-7600K’s, it does offer additional cores and virtual cores. We’ve run a battery of benchmarks to see if those cores will make up the difference.

Gordon Mah Ung

AMD’s Ryzen 5 1600X will compete head-on with Intel’s Core 5-7600K in the all-important $250 CPU category.

Meet Ryzen 5

AMD actually announced four Ryzen 5 CPUs last month. Two of them are quad-cores with SMT (simultaneous multithreading): The $169 Ryzen 5 1400 and the $189 Ryzen 5 1500X. The last two are six-core chips with SMT: The $219 Ryzen 5 1600 and the $249 Ryzen 5 1600X. 

Intel Core i5-7600K

All are based on the same die used in the upscale Ryzen 7 lineup we’ve already reviewed, but they have cores switched off.

The one of most interest to us is the Ryzen 5 1600X. With its list price of $249, it maps almost perfectly to the Core i5-7600K, which has a current list price of $242 and has sat around at $250 for much of its life.

The six-core and quad-core Ryzen CPUs are essentially built using the same eight-core dies from Ryzen 7. Each features two Core Complex (CCX) units with CPU cores switched off. One core on each is switched off for the six-core Ryzen 5s, and two cores on each are turned off for the quad-core CPUs. They also have different clock speeds.  

AMD

Each Zen core complex is made up of four individual processors. AMD turns off some cores for the six-core and quad-core Ryzen 5 parts.

How we tested

For the Core i5-7600K, testing was conducted using the same system we used for the Core i7-7700K in our Ryzen 7 review, but with a few key changes. We updated the Asus ROG Maximus IV Code to the latest available BIOS, which basically adds Optane support. We also pulled two of four memory modules we had installed. This reduced the RAM from 32GB to 16GB of DDR4, but it also allowed us to increase the memory clock of our Corsair modules from DDR4/2133 to DDR4/2933 speeds.

Note that running Kaby Lake at higher speeds with all memory slots full isn’t an issue. Not all of the CPUs we tested (*cough* Ryzen), however, will easily support high clock speeds with all DIMM slots loaded.

For the Ryzen 5 1600X, rather than re-use the previous AMD X370 build from the Ryzen 7 review, I used an MSI B350 Tomahawk motherboard. AMD provided the board, saying it had a newer BIOS that offered the best performance. A clean install of Windows 10 was loaded onto a Kingston 256GB HyperX SSD (the same model and capacity used in other test machines). For RAM, I used a pair of Geil EVO 8GB modules with the timing set to AMD’s specifications for testing on the Tomahawk board.

As with all of our builds, we used Founders Edition GeForce GTX 1080 cards. I verified clock and RAM timings on each card before I began testing.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X and 1600 vs. i5-7600K and 7500

After releasing the extensively reviewed 8-core 16-thread Ryzen 7 CPUs last month, AMD marked April as the month of the Ryzen 5 processors. This tier of the Zen microarchitecture-based CPUs includes 4-core and 6-core hyper threaded processors, in a price range of $169-$249.

Today, we will compare the Ryzen 5 1600X ($250) and 1600 ($220) to their price equivalents from Intel: the i5-7600K ($240) and i5-7500 ($200).

Specifications-wise, the Ryzen 5 processors are much closer to the i7-6800K and i7-6850K, which are Intel’s enthusiast X99-platform based 6-core 12-thread CPUs. On the other hand, price-wise, the AMD parts are much closer to the Kaby Lake 4-core 4-thread i5 line-up.

The Ryzen 5 1600X and the 1600 are based on the same chip, with slightly different configurations. It is possible to overclock both of these CPUs to similar clockspeeds with little to no benefit to performance from the XFR (extended frequency range) the 1600X offers.

The benefit of the 1600 is that it comes with AMD’s Wraith Spire stock cooler, which is actually decent. The Wraith Spire is rated to dissipate up to 95W of power, and is quiet. High-level overclocking (100+ W) will be problematic with this cooler, but a moderate OC to the base level of the 1600X is possible.

Non-gaming benchmarks

Because the 1600X and 1600 utilize 6 cores with 12 threads, it’s safe to assume that many modern non-gaming applications are able to leverage the performance Ryzen 5 offers. This is especially nice at this price, since the competition from Intel only offers for non-hyperthreaded cores.

Both the 1600X and 1600 handily beat the i5-7600K and i5-7500 in multi-threaded workloads. Applications that scale better with clock speed will prefer the higher clocked, higher IPC Intel CPUs. For most content creation (such as video editing) and code compiling, Ryzen 5 is the new best choice.

Gaming benchmarks

With gaming, the story is far more interesting. Ryzen 5 has the advantage in multi-threaded applications, because all of Intel’s i5 CPUs in this price range only have 4 cores and 4 threads. But a lot of games are still heavily dependent on higher clock speeds over multiple threads. That’s where Intel still has the upper-hand.

Nevertheless, GamersNexus, HardwareUnboxed and other reviewers tend to agree that due to multiple factors, the Ryzen 5 processors compare favorably to Intel’s price equivalents, both in terms of value and performance.

GamersNexus shows how even though the overclocked Ryzen 5 1600X average framerate is lower than the i5 7600K’s, the 1% and 0.1% lowest recorded framerates are higher on Ryzen, leading to a generally smoother and more consistent experience. Source: GamersNexus

Depending on the game, many reviewers show the Ryzen 5 1600X being on par or slightly (~7%) below the i5-7600K, while the Ryzen 5 1600 was mostly on par or beating the locked i5-7500.

Depending on how well the game is optimized for Ryzen (some games already have “Ryzen patches” meant to better leverage the performance of the new AMD CPUs), the trophy is still in Intel’s hands. But other interesting facts come into play.

AM4 platform specifications.

Even though the AM4 platform is being actively patched by both AMD and motherboard vendors, it is here to stay for at least three years. That means you can buy an AM4-based platform now and upgrade later without the need to get a new motherboard.

Also, all Ryzen CPUs are unlocked, including the cheaper Ryzen 5 1600. Overclocking this CPU to around the 1600X levels brings it far above the locked i5-7500 in terms of performance. It also comes with a decent stock cooler, so that’s another $20+ saved.

The i5-7600K and Ryzen 5 1600X both require an aftermarket cooler. But the Intel chip also needs a more expensive Z270 motherboard, while Ryzen CPUs can be overclocked on cheaper B350 motherboards. Looking at CPU usage graphs, it is also evident that the i5 is mostly pegged at 100% usage, meaning there is nowhere for the processor to grow, while the Ryzen 5 processors show CPU usage hovering mostly in the 50-60% range, leaving room for developers to get more out of them with better multi-threading.

Ryzen does need faster RAM to perform best. Faster DDR4 costs more, which can negate the cost savings of Ryzen’s cheaper motherboards.

The Ryzen 5 1600 is an easy recommendation over the i5-7500. Choosing between the Ryzen 5 1600X and i5-7600K is more difficult, but for most people the 1600X is a better option. The extra threads are very useful when they can be used, and the single-threaded performance deficit isn’t too large.

The best value can be had by overclocking the Ryzen 5 1600 processor ($219) on a $100 motherboard. This offers a $70 savings compared to a 1600X or an i5-7600K system (factoring in the extra price for the processor and the aftermarket cooler), while achieving comparable gaming performance.

It feels like it is finally time for the mainstream to move on from 4 cores and 4 threads. It is possible to get significantly better multi-threaded and comparable gaming performance for cheaper with Ryzen 5.

The Ryzen 5 CPUs can be found in our Great and Excellent tiers.
