    "The AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor is one of the best if you're a software developer. It can handle most anything you throw at it. It's much cheaper than it's Intel counterpart, but just as reliable. I recommend the Ryzen for anyone who needs a processor for software development."

    "You don't just need fast CPUs to play computer games. You need fast cpus to build the software to play those games and apps. And it is necessary to get the top of the line cpus so that you are never in a pinch come deadline time and you have a couple of hours to submit a major project. I think this this pick is a great cpu that will keep me at the top of the line when it comes to cpus. "
