CPU by stefan @ 2017-04-11

For the mainstream Ryzen 5 series, AMD has prepared for its customers not one but two hexa-core SKUs: the Ryzen 5 1600X but also the Ryzen 5 1600. Ryzen 5 1600X does have the same operating frequencies as the flagship Ryzen 7 1800X model, which means a 3.6GHz stock speed, 3.7GHz all-core boost, 4GHz 2-core boost and also 4.1GHz max boost with XFR. The Ryzen 5 1600X does also have the same 16MB of L3 cache, 512K L2 cache per core, 95W TDP and comes in a 3 + 3 CCX configuration.
