The AMD Ryzen 5 1600 is a desktop processor with 6 cores, launched in April 2017. It is part of the Ryzen 5 lineup, using the Zen architecture with Socket AM4. Thanks to AMD Simultaneous Multithreading (SMT) the core-count is effectively doubled, to 12 threads. Ryzen 5 1600 has 16MB of L3 cache and operates at 3.2 GHz by default, but can boost up to 3.6 GHz, depending on the workload. AMD is making the Ryzen 5 1600 on a 14 nm production node using 4,800 million transistors. The silicon die of the chip is not fabricated at AMD, but at the foundry of GlobalFoundries. You may freely adjust the unlocked multiplier on Ryzen 5 1600, which simplifies overclocking greatly, as you can easily dial in any overclocking frequency.
With a TDP of 65 W, the Ryzen 5 1600 consumes typical power levels for a modern PC. AMD's processor supports DDR4 memory with adual-channel interface. This processor does not have integrated graphics, you will need a separate graphics card.
Hardware virtualization is available on the Ryzen 5 1600, which greatly improves virtual machine performance. Programs using Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) can run on this processor, boosting performance for calculation-heavy applications. Besides AVX, AMD is including the newer AVX2 standard, too, but not AVX-512.
