Not liking the only releasing on one VR system. Fragmentation is not good.

Seems to be a growing trend of not bothering with pc demos these days.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X review: the most significant gaming CPU AMD have ever madeAMD Ryzen 5 1600X review: the most significant gaming CPU AMD have ever made
Dave James Avatar

The rated temps came from the previous version of the Ryzen Master app which reported a 20degree offset on the 95W 'X' chips.


So that 57C idle is actually 37C according to AMD. The reporting is changing soon (now?) to take that into account.

Thanks. Wasn't that clear in the piece. Seemed odd how idle temps close to 100% use temps.

57C at idle is still 57C unless AMD have created a new temperature scale.

Not sure how you've just ignored how hot it appears to run. That's a fair amount of heat to dissipate.Reply

? The 1600x is rated at 95 watts. (This is the heat you need to dissipate,or power,to be more precise.)

The 1800X is also stated as a 95 watt part. So its a guidence bracket, not an exact power figure.(my cooler for e.g. is labelled 95 watts)

At full load in this test the 1600x is at 64C, which is well acceptable for life span.

It is not clear if that is over clocked full load or stock clocks full load, but trust me when I say it will not be difficult keeping these processors in the required temps.

None of them function above ~ 4.1 gig what ever the temps anyway,so best leave off the last 0.1 gig and have sensible voltages and power usage.

Loving the K70, especially the flat form under the keys which means no dust and dirt gets stuck between the keys!

Individual lights is good for gaming in the dark just highlighting the keys you need.Reply

I am all about the K70 love. Best keyboards I've ever owned :)

The game is good but it needs more balancing i think

Balance is a bit out but it's fun enough.

Curious what their pricing strategy will be seeing as the current selection of Xbox/PC games are more expensive on PC and limited to the Windows Store.Reply
Ben Burns Avatar

Since it's Microsoft, I'm guessing the strategy will be to charge as much as possible whilst doing as little actual porting as possible.
