AMD Ryzen 5 1500X CPU

The AMD Ryzen 5 1500X processor belongs to the first generation of AMD processors with Zen architecture. It was released to the market in 2017, so it already has its time of circulation. It is also an X-series processor so presumably it is optimized for maximum performance. However, it is still a mid-range processor, with its strengths and weaknesses.

Features of the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X processor

This model, like all Ryzen 5s, has 4 cores and 8 independent threads . That is, it has multi-threaded technology that allows the processes to be duplicated in each in each processor core. In addition, it has 16 MB of L3 cache , not bad for a product with four years on the market. The benefits of this processor are interesting despite being inferior to the newer models of the brand.

The basic processing speed of this processor is about 3.5 GHz increased to 3.7 GHz in turbo mode. It must be taken into account that, thanks to XFR technology, this number rises a little more, since in this way the frequency is slightly increased above the turbo when a single core is working. . If this wasn’t enough, we can always experiment with overclocking for more power. In case of doing so, it is advisable to improve the cooling system, since the built-in cooler Wraith Spire is only sufficient for normal use.

As you might expect, the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X processor does not include a graphics processor. In the world of gaming this is more than acceptable, since it will always be more efficient to have a discrete GPU to optimize resources. In the same sense, we can also say that the consumption and the working temperature of this processor are not entirely satisfactory.

In conclusion, if what you are looking for is to build a low cost gaming PC, this option can be very attractive. With a low market value, since it is two generations behind the latest releases, it can run some current games like Battlefield 5 . However, for more demanding use, it may not be enough.

The performance in general use is more than acceptable, even multitasking. But, definitely, the most attractive thing is the price at which it can be achieved. An inexpensive and interesting option.
