Chillblast Fusion Hex (Ryzen R5 1600) System Review

Rating: 7.5.

Today marks the launch of the new Ryzen 5 line of processors from AMD. If you’ve been living under a rock for the past month, these are the cheaper hex-core and quad-core chips that slot in under Ryzen 7 in the family hierarchy. Chillblast were very quick to send us a system based on the Ryzen 5 1600, and when coupled with a GTX 1070, could this be a real winner?

The Chillblast Fusion Hex is definitely the most affordable PC with a hex-core processor I have seen in a long while. Priced at £1319.99, this system has the potential to be a winner with those who want to game as well as run multi-threaded software. Read on for our full review, including a look at the system itself, analysis of its computational performance, and how it runs some of the latest games.
