In all honesty, my i7 2700K at 4.6Ghz still pulls its weight flawlessly and I have zero need for an upgrade, but... Damn if I'm not tempted to give AMD some money. I'm still wondering about a few things around Zen v1.5, so I'm waiting on more information from reviews, but everything points in the right direction for AMD. The most important bit I'm waiting on for the new platform, is Linux compatibility.
Once an Intel user, you should always be an intel user. Wait for a worth intel chip upgrade.
Uh? Why? xD
Because Intel's slowest i7 chip still delivers better Gaming Performance than AMD's best Ryzen chip. Unless you are 100% productivity. Intel is going to provide you with better long term value.
Uhm... Let's see...
* 486DX1: 1993-1998
* Pentium II 400: 1998-2003
* Pentium III 850 (OC'ed to ~980): 2003-2006
* Athlon64 X2 4200+ (Toledo): 2006-2010
* Phenom II 965BE rev.C: 2010-2012
* Core i7 2700K: 2012-today
I don't know... It sounds like AMD deserves another chance
