AMD’s Ryzen 5 1500X and 1600X reviewed: Taking the fight against Intel to the midrange market
Final verdict? These chips are everything we like about Ryzen, a bit less of things we didn’t like much, and they’re selling at prices that wreck Intel’s price structure. While there are exceptions and corner cases, AMD currently offers the best overall price/performance ratios in the CPU business.

If they could improve the memory latency that would be excellent, but as it it stands, finally the desktop CPU market is competitive.

It's hard to really 'wreck the price structure' of the 7400/7500/7600/7600K unless/until you can defeat said processors in gaming, IMO...; the Ryzen 5's do seem a very good value, however, especially for those who will be doing a tad more work/content creation and using applications that scale well with more cores...

(Although I do find all Intel CPUs below the 7600K to be overpriced, especially the ludicrous i3 7350K); certainly, perhaps this batch of Ryzen 5 cpus will drive Intel's prices down by $30-$50 per unit, which is sorely needed.

Ryzen 3 will certainly be interesting. From what I know, the G4560 wins at that price as it is incredibly good value anyway.

Those CPU's are equal to Intel's offerings on realistic gaming scenarios and much better on virtually everything else. So they really wreck price structure.

Realistic gaming scenario is NOT $200 CPU with $1000 GPU.
