Under the codename Zen, AMD’s 2017 core microarchitecture series offers state of the art core design with 14nm CMOS technology, support for recent I/O standards, improved power efficiency, reliable temperature control, advanced security and better connectivity with other components. Other than their X models, AMD also released non-X models in their Ryzen line where they may lack the XFR (eXtended Frequency Range) feature but the difference in clock rates are very minimal.
In a time where powerful computing systems are highly demanded on various activities such as business computing, digital designing and gaming, AMD RyzenTM 5 1600 has 6 cores with 12 threads lets users deliver faster and more efficient multitasking while achieving improved processing power.
Designers and gamers will experience fast data rates from the with AMD RyzenTM 5 1600’s base clock speed at 3.2 GHz. For overclocking enthusiasts, this processor is also capable of attaining max turbo core speed at 3.6 GHz. The processor’s cores have fast transfer rates in L1 Cache at 576KB, L2 Cache at 3MB, and L3 Cache at 16MB. Overclocking is also enabled for this processor.
Users will also experience less lag and more optimal workload as they install the AMD RyzenTM5 1600 to their system since it has 2 memory channels and 2667MHz max memory rates. Opening multiple applications will become smoother.
Other than harnessing powerful processing power, this PROCESSOR also supports the latest interfaces in the market like the dual-channel DDR4 Memory Interface, Socket AM4 and PCIe 3.0. Installing crucial components on your system will be more convenient. Its Socket AM4 accommodates AMD’s latest chipsets such as X370 (for enthusiasts), B350 (for performance), A320 (for mainstream), X300 and A300 (for small form factors).
Regarding temperature regulation, the PROCESSOR is designed with 65 W default thermal design power with max temperature at 95C and Wraith Spire Thermal Solution. The Wraith Spire Thermal Solution is one of the features only available with AMD RyzenTM 5 1600 compared to its more high-end version, the AMD RyzenTM 5 1600X. With this feature, overheating will be not an issue during prolonged computing sessions.
Competing against other tech giants in the market, AMD RyzenTM 5 1600 stands out as it supports the latest technologies like AMD Ryzen Master Utility (for enabling overclocking), AMD SenseMI Technology
(an adaptive technology that caters every users and applications’ needs), AES (Advanced Encryption Standard Instruction Set), AVX2 (Advanced Vector Extensions 2), FMA3, Virtualization (better rendering) and XFR (Extended Frequency Range, for boosting your system’s frequency).
Consumers who are considering to upgrade their system will love to have AMD RyzenTM 5 1600 because it is a great substitute for high-end components like the Intel Kaby Lake processors. It has a mid-range price, at the same time possesses high processing power. Attaining peak processing levels will become the dream of the past as technologies are becoming more affordable. Since the processor is already unlocked, users can activate its overclocking feature at the same time keep up with other high-end processors. This is very ideal for processing very demanding tasks, rendering high-quality graphics, playing 4K games and watching HD multimedia entertainment.
Compared to AMD RyzenTM 5 1600X, this processor’s base and turbo clock speeds are slightly lower in exchange of affordability. While AMD RyzenTM 5 1600X has 3.6GHz base clock speed and 4GHz max turbo core speed, AMD RyzenTM 5 1600 has a competent rate of 3.2GHz base clock speed and 3.6GHz max turbo core speed. This is not bad most especially those who are very meticulous with prices.
With these positive features regarding performance and price, the AMD RyzenTM 5 1600X has a very high potential for allowing any systems to reach peak performance in the demanding age of computing.
