by PC Mag

"It's an 1800X with two cores lopped off for $100/£100 less, and that makes it a far more important gaming processor. Up against Intel's K-series i5 the 1600X is essentially its gaming equal but with a whole lot more multi-threaded performance to back it up. For us, AMD's Ryzen 5 1600X is now the go-to gaming CPU for your next rig."
