Ryzen motherboards have been extremely flaky.
AMD Infinity Fabric architecture benefits from higher RAM speed.
However, most Ryzen motherboards don't operate stable at RAM speed above 2400MHz.
I got a motherboard to run RAM at 3200MHz, but it was a massive undertaking.
Even then, one day, you go to turn on the machine... and it wouldn't post (requiring CMOS to be cleared).
If you don't mind being in constant "mechanic mode" it's OK.
Running RAM at 3200MHz isn't a huge benefit on the Intel side, but quality motherboards will do so without issue.
Then there were other completely bizarre issues:
Simultaneous Multi-Threading (Hyperthreading in AMD speak) would disappear after disabling the motherboard's onboard audio. Yes, you read that correctly.
Ryzen is great at super heavily multi-threaded tasks (video rendering in particular).
Many folks don't realize that many processes in a DAW can't be multi-threaded.
A developer from Image Line explained this in detail (few months back) on the KVR Forums.
For those times, the lower clock-speed of the Ryzen impedes performance.
Also keep in mind that many apps/plugins aren't fully optimized for Ryzen.
ie: On a test project, Boost 11 would make audible clicks on a Kick track (when running Ryzen).
Same exact project ran Boost 11 completely glitch-free when running an Intel CPU.
For my money, the performance of the i7-8086k (12 processing threads locked at 5GHz) is hard to beat.
With the right air-cooler, it runs near dead-silent.
Best of all worlds: Cost, Performance, Quiet... high clock-speed and 12 virtual cores
