Though, Ryzen seems cheaper and more advanced, but i am not sure how unity support the technology of multithreading and multinuclear. See others' articles, we find that, if we use the Ryzen to run game with espcially 1080p, it performs less than core i7. While the Ryzen, because of its Cores/Threads 8/16, obviously, works better when we run video rendering.
All in all, I want to use this pc to make and run VR game, with a 1080Ti.

@w2838867 I built an r7 1700 last week with 3600mhz ram (3200mhz max atm on ryzen) and a 500 m.2 samsung 960 evo ssd and my benchmarks are unbelievable. For a workstation you need multicore so the question is Ryzen 7 or i7 6900k (8 core/16 threads). i got 15200 benchmark on my 1700 with a slight overclock while i7 6900k has 13200, and i7 6950k has 15500, my ryzen costed 370 euro when the 6900k costs 1200 euro and 6950k 1900 euro, so the answer is simple.
I7 7700k has better single core performance but when it comes down to a workstation PC is not what you first care for, you will neen a fast machine to work with many stuff and ryzen is the way to go. I might sound like a fan boy but I m using intel cpu the past 5-6 years because AMD sucked at this time, but now they are back and their cpus rock.
One advice, be very thorough on choosing motherboard (x370 chipset) and RAM (check QVL of your motherboard) so you can use the maximum until they release the updates needed for more support.
