AMD Ryzen R5 1600 Unboxing Video [Rumor]

On the heels of the distribution leak last week, an AMD Ryzen R5 1600 processor unboxing video has made its way onto Youtube. The lighting during the video obscures the markings on the CPU for the most part, but you can see the 1600 on the box label. The cooler looks similar to the one that is included with the 1700; not sure if it has RGB on it though. Wonder how it compares to the 1700 overclocking performance since it started life as a 8 core die? Will the disabled cores allow for higher overclocking?

Here are some benchmarks to go with the leak.
