I have nothing at all against AMD. At any point in time, I'll use what I feel is the best overall CPU available.   With Ryzen, Thunderbolt-3 is not available. That's a show-stopper for myself and many of our clients.   Ryzen's "Infinity Archtecture" benefits from running faster RAM (DDR4/3200)... but it's hard to find a motherboard that'll run DDR4/3200 absolutely rock-solid. Ironically, Intel architecture doesn't benefit significantly from running faster RAM..
