AMD Ryzen 5 1600X & 1500X Processor Testing:

Office 2016 Black Scholes model: This test takes a 70.1 MB Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and performs about 28,000 sets of calculations that represent many of the most commonly used calculations in Excel. The measure of this test is the amount of time it takes to refresh the sheet.



Lower Is Better


POV-Ray 3.7: This program features a built-in benchmark that renders an image using Ray Tracing. The latest versions offer support for SMP (Symmetric Multi-Processing), enabling the workload to be spread across several cores for quicker completion.


Higher Is Better


ProShow Gold: This program is used to take a collection of images and stitch them together in a slide show, using a variety of transitions and effects, to make a compelling show you can share with friends and family. The workload consists of 29 high-resolution images that are stitched into a 3-minute 30 second video file using multiple transitions.


Lower Is Better


HandBrake 1.0: HandBrake is an open source application used to transcode multiple video formats to a high quality h.264 output format. The test file size is 128 MB in size and 43 seconds in length.


Lower Is Better


In this set of tests, it's easy to see the results fall in line with the reduction in core count. This is most evident when you look at the HandBrake results where you are getting an almost 50% reduction in performance when you compare the 8C/16T R7 processors with the 4C/8T R5 1500X. The R5 1600X does hold its own a bit better with the added core count, processor base, and boost core clock speed.
