AMD Ryzen 5 1600X & 1500X Performance Review
At face value, 7-Zip is a simple compression/decompresion tool like popular applications like WinZip and WinRAR but it also has numerous additional functions that can allow encryption, decryption and other options. For this test, we use the standard built-in benchmark which focuses on raw multi-threaded throughput.
Adobe Premier Pro CC
Adobe Premier Pro CC is one of the most recognizable video editing programs on the market today as it is used by videography professionals and YouTubers alike. In this test we take elements of a 60-second 4K video file and render them out into a cohesive MP4 video via Adobe’s Media Encoder. Note that GPU acceleration is turned on.
While the 1500X trades blows with Intel’s i5-7600K and i5-7500 in these first two productivity benchmarks, the real star of the show is the Ryzen 5 1600X. Not only does it perform very well against the much more expensive 7700K but it also runs neck and neck with the Ryzen 7 1700X in Adobe Premier Pro. That’s a seriously impressive feat which is most likely due to this chip’s higher clock speeds.
