    Ryzen dont give something refreshing for i7 users
    the price different doesn't make me wanna buy new cpu and new mobo

    for example
    ryzen 1400 is more or less the same as i7 - 3820
    and price around 200$ for new
    for pre-own 3820 u can have for 150$ for less

    if R5 1600 will go for 120$ it might worth the upgrade
    hopefully AMD can pull that off in future

    Ryzen 7 1800X is relatively cheap when compared to any Intel i7 processors out there in the market.

    Hoping new Ryzen's will be better than intels, instead of the 'flop' we had with the earlier release.

    in same cases its not worth upgrade

    Thing to consider is when you chose AMD over Intel you have to buy a new motherboard. Then the price difference will be thinner again.

    It will worth the upgrade if you are a gamer or video encoding business person, etc. Most modern games or video encoding are good with multithreading CPU(if you have a poor GPU) where actually Ryzen 7 1800K has more potential than the Intel i7. It is also going to be very good with application for crunching numbers.

    Even with buying new motherboard you would still be running it under or below Intel price.

    Then it's fine. But what about power consumption and cooling?

    It is very clear Ryzen 7 1800x consumes less power and the cooler is cheap. When you put the price of having a new and modern system with Ryzen together you would be running close to the same cost of a high-end i7 processor (without motherboard, cooler, etc) and still consumes more electricity. In the long-run it is more beneficial to invest in Ryzen 7 1800x while looking at the operating cost of your old Intel i7.
