AMD Ryzen R5 1500X Quad-Core AM4 Processor Review

Posted on 2017-04-23 16:23:04 by Thomas De Maesschalck

Following on from our coverage of the Ryzen R7 series of 8-core, 16-thread processors, the Ryzen R7 1700, Ryzen R7 1700X, and the Ryzen R7 1800X, we kick things off today with a look at the more affordable Ryzen R5 series! The R7’s have been a huge hit for AMD, with many of our readers reporting their new AM4 system builds, and I myself invested in the 1700X for my own system. The R5 are designed to be a bit more mainstream than the R7 series, offering 4 and 6 core variants, with 8 and 12 threads respectively, while also offering a much lower price point.
