AMD RYZEN 5 1600

AMD introduces its latest six-core processor Ryzen 5 1600. It offers top-level performance for all latest games as well as the most graphically intensive video rendering. It boasts a significant increase in computing power compared to the previous generation putting it on par with Intel's Kaby Lake series, in some respects even surpassing it.

Key features

  • Suitable both for computer aficionados and gamers 
  • 6 cores / 12 fibres
  • Unlocked multiplier for easy overclocking
  • 14nm manufacturing process
  • Requires the use of the new AM4 base plate
  • Unofficial Windows 7 support
  • Wraith Spire cooler included

6 cores and 12 fibres

The massive increase in performance is facilitated by the shift to a brand-new architecture and a refined production process (14nm FinFET). This allows for faster video rendering, discs encryption, and higher FPS in the latest games. Furthermore, AMD closely cooperates with game developers to ensure quick and efficient resolution of any issues regarding its gaming performance. 
Another technological improvement is the extensive use of SMT technology, sometimes also known as MultiThreading. This entails the support of two computing threads per core.

A significant upgrade for your computer

The massive increase in performance is enabled by the move toward the latest AM4 architecture. For this reason, the processor requires a motherboard with the AM4 full support as well as DD4 memory.  This investment grants access to a wide array of latest technologies. For example, the USB 3.1 (USB-C), PCIe 3.0, NVMe, 32Gb/s M.2 slots, SATA Express, as well as the CrossFire technology enabling the use of multiple graphics cards at once.  

Although the manufacturer does not guarantee technical support, the processor will be fully compatible with Windows 7 operating system.
