What I bought with this CPU

HyperX Savage DDR4 HX424C12SB2K2/8 8 GB
ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2 (good CPU fan but AM3+ ones still fit the mobo)
Why does that make it better? because it has the same cache as the 1800X and with 2 less cores; eg has more cache per core AND more thermal headroom to boost single thread work AND it's practically half the cost of the 1800X
AMD hardware runs the PS4 and Xbox CPU/GPU platform. New gaming titles coming out will be Ryzen optimised and will be better than intel CPUs offer at lower cost. Just look at the optimisation Ashes of the Singularity or Dota 2 have made.
With specific game optimizations for Ryzen it can beat an i7 7700k and you get to pay less for it too.
Things to keep in mind:
1. Currently Ryzen CPUs run best with AMD GPUs (some performance/latency issues with nvidia cards at certain resolutions)
2.There are some installation difficulties with Ryzen CPUs and Windows 7 (although there are workarounds)
Comparing Ryzen 5 1600X with other processors Intel that are have in the market you get a better price/performance ratio.
And obviously comparing the Ryzen genaration with the latest generation of AMD processors, much innovation has been made.
In my specific situation, the performance of the Ryzen 5 1600X is by far superior them in my old FX8350. And I could talk about all the innovations, performance specs specifically but I'll just mention two points that for me are very important, heating and energy consumption. Your processor is a lot colder that the last generation and spends in some cases half the energy that the old FX spend.
After changing to the 1700, my PC has been a lot more responsive and I have left the CPU on stock settings and run a stress test for 48 hours to see if we run into any issues like the 1600x which was also on stock.
Also I would recommend the 1600 non x version for most users over the 1600x, better value for money and if you intend to overclock they can reach and sometimes exceed the 1600x stock settings with ease.
However my bad luck shouldn't take away from AMD's comeback and the Ryzen 5 series is a very good processor for those that cannot justify the Intel pricing structure.
See my Ryzen 7 1700 review for more information on that variant. I will edit and continue to update as I use it.
