AMD Ryzen 5 1600 and Ryzen 5 1400 CPU Review

We all know how Ryzen does in gaming; when we are GPU bound at higher resolutions performance is in line with Intel, but Intel is still able to steal the show at 1080P. The reason we test at lower resolutions (if you consider 1080P a low resolution), is because it allows the CPU to play more of a role and it gives us a view into how the CPU will do if your system isn't GPU limited (let's say you upgrade your GPU or add in another).


Some games rely a lot on frequency rather than cores, and Intel's frequency has really helped it in games like GTA:V. In Rise of the Tomb Raider, the 1600 and 1400 do fairly well at resolutions of 1080P and up. In Ashes of the Singularity the Ryzen 5 1400 and 1600 do well, and that is because of optimizations and the fact that it's extremely GPU intensive.
