While we know where the 1600 will fall since it's just a 1600X without the extra Turbo Boost and lower base frequency, the 1400 is really the surprise performer. While its multi-core performance and single core performance aren't as strong as the i5-7500, if you consider its cost and the performance margin, it turns out the Ryzen 5 1400 is an excellent value.

 

While in CINEBENCH the Ryzen 5 1400 and 1600 might not beat slightly more expensive Intel competitors, in wPrime they do extremely well. Memory bandwidth is quite decent, the same as the rest of the Ryzen lineup and even Intel's dual channel processors.
