AMD Ryzen 5 1500X

AMD 1500X

The AMD Ryzen 5 1500X is a desktop processor with 4 cores and Hyper Threading (SMT). It is the fastest Ryzen 5 quad-core processor in the beginning of 2017, but the 65-watt TDP is similar to the hexa-core Ryzen 5 1600.

The Ryzen 5 1500X has a base frequency of 3.5 GHz and can reach up to 3.7 GHz via Turbo (up to 2 cores) or 3.9 GHz via XFR (also up to 2 cores).

The processor based on the Zen architecture is not fully convincing in games. AMD blames missing optimizations from the gaming producers.
