Reviews
AMD Ryzen™ 5 1500X, S AM4, Quad Core, 8 Thread, 3.5GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo, 16MB Cache, 65W, CPU, Retail,+ Wraith Spire Cooler is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value for money and very good performance I remember the days of the K6 processors where AMD were very slightly ahead of Intel. Then came a very barren spell for AMD from the early days of the FX processors until the release of Ryzen. Whilst the top end processors still come from Intel, AMD now has very credible processors at the low, mid and high ends. Ryzen doesn't come with a built in graphics chip, so these chips are intended to be used with discrete graphics cards. Compared with the i5 7600, which has a similar clock speed but no hyper-threading, this processor is a bargain at around £40 less. Obviously if you are looking for a media PC in a tiny case, Ryzen is not an option. You'll have to wait for the new AMD APUs or buy Intel. The 1500X offers four cores and eight threads and support for dual channel memory with speeds of up to 2666MHz (subject to motherboard) but I have heard of people getting it to work at higher speeds. The Wraith Spire cooler that comes with the Ryzen 5 series is a very good cooler. It is as quiet as a £30 CoolerMaster I bought for another PC which makes this processor seem even more of a bargain against the Intel i5. The processor is easy to fit and the Spire cooler screws into the board, which is much easier than the twist in option on Intel's boards. I paired this with a ASUS B350 Prime Plus and 16GB of Corsair RAM. The computer is fast, extremely stable and whisper quiet, even when running burn in tests.
