If most of what you do involves heavy 3D work with Blender or Unreal Engine, the Ryzen is a good option for aspiring Creators in that field. It is also very competitive in 2D Rendering, but the Core i7 slips ahead by a hair. Pricing is also very important, as sometimes uneducated customers see the Core i7 marketing and are quickly drawn to the product. That is why you always check with reviews from sources that you trust and make the informed decision that is right for you.
