Wow. The R5-1600X matches the R7-1800X in everything bar the extra cores/threads. Considering what we've already of the R7-1800X that makes it a very, very tempting. Sure it's not going to knock the i7-7700k off the top step, but it'll be really great middle ground for anyone who wants to have a couple of extra cores in reserve and aren't looking to run everything at 144Hz. Personally I'm aiming to upgrade over the next 12 months to a 2160p60 capable gaming system with a little bit extra for 3D design/modding work etc. Looks like a great chip to me if the price is right.

Why would anyone compare the R5's to an i7 7700k? The R5's are the mid range, just like intels i5's, so lets compare apples to apples shall we.

Its a tough one because clockspeed will go in Intels favor when the 7700K gets mentioned.....

Do those clock/boost speeds suggest the R5s could run into the same thermal and stability limits as the 8-core you looked at?

That is the thing, apples to apples CPU core/thread count wise we are talking i7 competition.

Considering pricing it is likely to be more of an i5 comparison. You can't not compare it to both.

As I said in the article it is a moot point, as it will likely come at a price that is close to half the price of the 7700K, so that is where the best budget gaming performance will be.

Yeah Intel has the clock speed lead, but people forget that there is a difference between enough for gaming and the best at gaming.

Yup and anything up to four cores the 7700k slaughters my 5820k. Any more though? the scales start to tip fast.

I think any one buying more than four cores should understand that.

Plus of course Intel have been working on their clock speeds since Sandy. It took them forever to actually get to 5ghz, and most I have seen will "only" do 4.8.

I would expect these to OC much better than the R7s

I think the 1600x will be my choice for upgrade

I think people forget that Intel current CPU's have been work on and optimised for years, Ryzen is just getting started

So why have reviewers compared the R7 1700 to a 6850K or a 5960X when their pricing is vastly different? Because there aren't really any apples to apples situations here. It's clear that Zen and Intel's designs are vastly different both in price, marketing, and performance metrics.
