Leaks on AMD's lower-end Ryzen CPUs have been disproven

Leaks on AMD's lower-end Ryzen CPUs have been disproven, with AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X having much higher clock speeds than was what previously rumoured.



Read more on AMD R5 series leaks being disproven.

Well this is common sense. While leaks can be great to get excited over you should always wait until things are proven before making any decisions.

As someone who is excited for the R5 line-up though, especially given the R7 price/performance this is great news. It's going to be faster than I was expecting.

When you drop the core count you severely drop the required voltage and thus heat.

I fully expect much higher clocks out of the lower end parts.

I reckon the R5 is going to be the gamers choice and the sweet spot for performance/price
6 cores os more then enough for gaming and then some with hyperthreading

No you raise voltage and heat!

Should be good for it against kaby lake and there high clocks, make it a little closer to ipc

Another reason to wait for the R5 1500 and 1600X before investing in an 8-core you don't need. 'You' referring to gamers like myself who would not have any use for 6900K-like performance.

A 1600X could definitely be my next CPU come May or whenever it's released. I'm willing to wait.

But when is someone going to provide realistic benchmarks of games we actually play, I know cinebench/sandra etc is great but OC3D is a gaming site - how do these new systems compare in terms of FPS?

There is a video of BF1 running on a 1700. It runs it better than the 7700k. around 10% max better. Not an awful lot, and BF1 likes a thread or ten, but a good indicator that the gaming performance should be more than acceptable.
