AMD Ryzen 5 1400 Reviews Goes Live Before Launch



/ 1 year ago

Ryzen 5 1400 AMD

With the latest generation of releases, it seems like both Intel and AMD have had trouble keeping control over their chips. Earlier in the week, we got a review of the Ryzen 5 1600 which somehow slipped past AMD. Today, we have yet another Ryzen 5 processor being reviewed before the official launch on April 11th. This time, we have the budget quad core Ryzen 5 1400 being put through the paces.

Clocking in at 3.2 GHz base and 3.4 GHz boost, the R5 1400 is the cheapest Ryzen 5 at a mere $169. Despite the wallet-friendly price, it offers 4 cores and 8 threads, on par with Intel’s nearly twice as expensive i7 offerings. With a total of 8 MB of cache or half that of the Ryzen 7, this sample was capable of hitting 3.8 GHz though no test results at this speed were revealed. For synthetics, the chips deliver impressive results on par with Intel’s i7 Haswell CPUs.

In gaming, the numbers fall short of Intel’s i7 6700K in CPU heavy titles like Metro Redux and Total War: Warhammer. However, the R5 1400 manages to hold its own most of the time and once it is overclocked, it should perform decently better. Once you consider the price of the chips, AMD’s value proposition becomes very clear. As the lowest clocked Ryzen 5, it may be well worth it pick up the faster $189 Ryzen 5 1500X those who are leery of overclocking. Hopefully, we’ll get a review of the R5 1500X shortly as well.

    You guys haven’t seen Santiago Santiago’s video? He made a video with 3.8 GHz boost.
