AMD Ryzen 5 1600X and 1500X Processor Reviews


Power Consumption

No review is complete without taking a look at power and the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X and 1600X did pretty good and were close to many of the Ryzen 7 processors at idle and under load.

The chart above is getting really full, so be sure to click on it and see it at the full size. At idle the AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Processor used 44.2W and the Ryzen 5 1600X used 48.8W. At load the Ryzen 5 1600X topped out at 268W and the Ryzen 5 1500X topped out at 261W, so they are very close to one another with regards to power consumption.
