I have seen a lot of reviews of this two processors but they have focused on movie editing, videogames, compresion, etc. But I haven't seen a good benchmark particularly on monero mining. I know that is depends on a lot of external factors too, but only in terms of processing power and how to handle threads, temperature, etc. which on is better?
AMD Threadripper is clearly better. Take a look at this german article. If you don't understand german, take a look at the table with the number of threads. The more threads the better.
On the second page you will then see the relevant charts
Here are the details from that article

1thanks, even I don't understand german, the tables were very useful. But then, is Threadripper 1920x better than Threadripper 1950x?? Feb 27, 2018 at 18:14
Actually, yes it is :) More Hashes per second and also not as much power consumption– EndogenFeb 27, 2018 at 18:17
1Endogen, can you please embed some information from the article in case the link ever goes down? This answer should be able to stand on its own. Feb 28, 2018 at 23:39
I added all the necessary informations– EndogenMar 2, 2018 at 21:19
