I'd go for the Ryzen. Perhaps I'm missing something important, but I don't really see the point of the i5-7640x in terms of who it's aimed at.  It essentially similar to the 7600K, but on a very much more expensive platform (X299).  You're looking at $500 for just the CPU and entry level motherboard.  The same money could buy you an 8 core/16 thread R7 and mid range motherboard.  The Ryzen has significantly better performance than an i5 on multi threaded tasks (like video editing and encoding).  The 7600K on a Z270 motherboard is a reasonable choice where four cores is enough and single thread performance is more important than high core count (e.g. gaming).

1600X due to core count which for media production is better.

Ryzen of course. 6C12T vs 4C4T, there is no competition, Ryzen is miles better. i5 7640x must be some kind of bad joke, I see no reasons why it was released.

Save some money and instead of the r5 1600x get the non-x version. The only difference is a small difference in clockspeed.
