We have already seen the AMD Ryzen 7 performance, even though the CPUs have been taking a bit of a beating from reviewers we also know that they aren’t really for gaming. The upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 CPUs are mainstream CPUs that will cater to the mainstream gaming community. Here we have leaked AMD Ryzen 5 1400 performance numbers.We talked about how AMD Ryzen 5 was being sold at some retailers ahead of launch and it seems that someone as able to get their hands on the AMD Ryzen 5 1400 CPU and the person in question has benchmarked the CPU and published a video showing the results.Here we can see how well the AMD Ryzen 5 1400 performs as compared to the i5 7400 and Pentium G4560 . The AMD chip has the same number of cores as the 7400 but it has more threads. While the 7400 ahs 4 threads the AMD Rzyen 5 1400 has 8.It is important to note here that the Pentium G4560 is a very cheap dual core Kaby Lake CPU and that it has been put in just for fun. It makes little sense to compare … [Read more...] about AMD Ryzen 5 1400 Performance Numbers Leaked, Check Them Out Here
AMD Ryzen 5 1600X performance figures have leaked and not only do we have benchmarks for the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, we also have some stats for the little brother AMD Ryzen 5 1300. These were leaked on a Chinese website and do take these numbers with a grain of salt as it is possible that these are not the final numbers that we will be seeing at launch. Also check out: AMD RX 500 Series Will Feature Both Vega And Polaris Based GPUsCPU-Z helps to measure the single threaded and multi-threaded performance of a CPU and here the AMD Ryzen 5 1600X scored 1888 in single-threaded performance benchmarks and 12544 points in multi-threaded performance benchmark. Something interesting to note here is that the clock speed is beyond the base clock, this could be the boost clock of the CPU.Compared to the Core i5-7600K we see that the AMD Ryzen chip lags behind when it comes to single threaded performance but when it comes to multi-threaded performance AMD Ryzen5 … [Read more...] about AMD Ryzen 5 1600X, AMD Ryzen 5 1300, CPU Benchmarks Leaked
The previously launched AMD Ryzen 7 series took a bit of a bashing from critics when it came to 1080p gaming but let’s face it you really don’t need 8 cores and 16 threads for gaming. AMD Ryzen 7 was for the creative, not the gamer. What about AMD Ryzen 5?For gaming, you do not need more than 4 cores and that is where AMD Ryzen 5 comes in. There are 4-cores, 8-thread variants in the series that offer great bang for the buck as compared to Intel CPUs. AMD Ryzen 5 also has the upper hand when it comes to the number of threads.This increased number of threads should give you better performance in some cases. Plus you are getting unlocked CPUs which you can overclock when you need more power. People usually do not spend more than $250 on CPUs which makes this serious even more attractive.If you are on a budget and are looking for a decent CPU that will not only get you through CPU intensive games but will also allow you to do some content creation as well then this is something … [Read more...] about Is AMD Ryzen 5 Series Better Than Ryzen 7 For Gaming?
The Ryzen 5 1600X is the hexcore, 12-thread CPU attack dog AMD have sicced on Intel's i5 range. It's a chip aimed at disrupting Intel’s mid-range dominance with the now-classic AMD Ryzen one-two of serious multi-threading chops and a Rottweiler-aggressive price tag. It’s not all about the processor, you need balance in your PC, so make sure you get the best graphics card for your machine. AMD haven’t let up this year - the Ryzen processor releases have come thick and fast since the initial Ryzen 7 1800X launched.

The Ryzen 5 range is where AMD’s Zen architecture hits the high-volume, mainstream price point where many PC gamers start their new builds. Offering three times the processor thread-count compared with Intel’s similarly priced Core i5 range, the $200 (£180) six-core Ryzen 5 1600X could become … [Read more...] about AMD Ryzen 5 1600X review: the most significant gaming CPU AMD have ever made
