Hyperloop vs Super High-speed Maglev Train, Which is cheaper and more affordable? Which is faster and safer and more enjoyable?

Remember Hyperloop?  Elon Musk’s Hyperloop suggestion is probably in the work by someone in the West, but in China, they’re testing super high-speed train that could reach 1000km/h.  I think Chinese are combining the concept of Hyperloop and Maglev Train into one, and this could allow any Maglev train to travel in a vacuum which increases the speed of the Maglev train.  This makes me wonder which is more efficient and cheaper to build, Hyperloop or Super High-speed Maglev train?  I think Hyperloop requires digging a tunnel, but the Chinese could build durable but affordable materials to form a vacuum which encases the Maglev train.
