AMD Ryzen 5 1600 AF CPU Review & Benchmarks: Best CPU Under $100 in 2020

Conclusion The AMD Ryzen 5 1600 AF is a good processor. The R5 1600 won one of our Best CPUs awards for 2017, but this isn’t a 2017 part – it’s sort of a 2018 Zen+ part, but it was released in 2019.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Review

Unless you really need those extra cores and threads for professional purposes, or money really isn't an issue, the Ryzen 5 1600 comes off as much more sensible chip, particularly if you don't want to deal with the hassle and extra cost of an aftermarket cooler, as you'll need to with the Ryzen 5 1600X.
