AMD Ryzen 5 1600X And 1500X Processor Review
     Tue, Apr 11 2017 | 1:35P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our Ryzen 7 coverage, we were able to disclose a few details regarding the more mainstream targeted Ryzen 5 series of processors, but save for a few AMD provided data points, performance wasn’t one of them. Until today, that is. AMD’s Ryzen 5 series of processors should be available soon after you read this, and we’ve got the company’s top 6 and 4-core versions on the test bench, the Ryzen 5 1600X and Ryzen 5 1500X...

AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Processor Review
     Tue, Apr 11 2017 | 1:35P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The $189 MSRP Ryzen 5 1500X quad-core CPU from AMD is quite competitive in games and can perform even better when overclocked to 3.9 or 4GHz. If you are purchasing this specific SKU mostly for streaming, video encoding or rendering applications, we would recommend a small upgrade to the Ryzen 5 1600 model which does feature two extra cores or even better, the fully-fledged Ryzen 7 1700."

AMD Ryzen 5 1500X and 1600X review
     Tue, Apr 11 2017 | 1:31P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Ryzen 5 1500X and 1600X. Yes, AMD today unleashes its six- and quad-core parts. The new processors will be even more price competitive towards what Intel offers. And if you do your math right and purchase an affordable B350 chipset based motherboard, you might just have struck gold in terms of price and performance.

Does Ryzen Perform Better with AMD GPUs?
     Thu, Apr 06 2017 | 6:39P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since our initial review we've been looking at Ryzen from a few different angles. But there's a rumor going around that Ryzen's gaming performance is better than we think... if you use a Radeon GPU. Curious to see if there is any truth to the story, we put together a test designed to eliminate GPU bottlenecks and see what happens.

We pushed some of the things we were working on today off the agenda and started testing the new Ryzen Power Plan to see what performance gains were to be had....

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X processor
     Thu, Apr 06 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Ryzen 7 1700X is a CPU that offers 90% of the 1800X's performance in a much less expensive package. But how does it fare against Intel's competition without SMT enabled?

AMD’s Ryzen CPU revealed a few inefficiencies
     Thu, Apr 06 2017 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What began as a simple internal discussion about the validity of claims that Windows 10 scheduling might be to blame for some of Ryzen's performance oddities, and that an update from Microsoft and AMD might magically save us all, has turned into a full day with many people chipping in to help put together a great story. The team at PC Perspective believes strongly that the Windows 10 scheduler is not improperly assigning workloads to Ryzen processors because of a lack of architecture knowledge on the structure of the CPU."

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X Review
     Mon, Apr 03 2017 | 4:42P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As it has 8 cores and 16 threads of processing goodness, the 1700X will be looking to catch the eye of those on the lookout for a powerful CPU top aid with their content creation, broadcasting, and next-gen gaming/VR setups. The 1700X offers a huge price reduction over the 1800X and features all the latest top technology from AMD. It's out-the-box specs have it seated at 3.4 GHz, which will boost a single core to a respectable 3.8GHz. This will make the 1700X look very attractive to a wide array of people looking to save on the cost over the 1800X (or alternative).

AMD Ryzen Gaming Performance
     Mon, Apr 03 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD Ryzen processors made a strong impression last week, however time constraints resulted in more questions than answers when it came to the four games we managed to benchmark in time for launch. As promised, we're back to follow up on our initial 1080p testing with a more in-depth look at Ryzen's gaming performance across a 16 titles played at 1080p and 1440p resolutions.

AMD Ryzen 7 1700X CPU Review
     Mon, Apr 03 2017 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
£500 still a little much for you to drop on an 1800X? Worry not as that’s where the Ryzen 7 second-in-command 1700X comes in. Take some less favourable Ryzen 7 silicon, drop the clock frequencies by a couple of hundred Megahertz, put £100 back into your pocket and you are left with a Ryzen 7 1700X. Oh, and you still get the unlocked multiplier that allows you to overclock hassle-free (and close to Ryzen 7 1800X numbers). Where’s the catch?
