Define “better”?   Which one is the quietest?  Which one has the better strong signal handling ability.  Which one has a 100% transmit duty cycle? 

There are lots of “better” factors.

But, if you already have one of those - I have IC7300, maybe an RGO can find a place in the shack. Steve N4LQ did a video comparing CW with IC7300 and Corsair II. Corsair II won very big, IMO even when noise reduction was turned on for the Icom. But, this specific comparison is for the sound from the speaker, not frequency stability, memories, or modes! Corsair wins on quiet rx. I find that IC7300 is vastly closer to Corsair when I turn the AGC off. I would like to hear how RGO compares to Corsair and IC7300 on CW as Steve set things up - with equal speakers. My guess is RGO will have notably quiet audio from the samples I've heard. That could make it a nice niche machine. I posted about this because it seems like the project is moving ahead, as compared to others - like the Palstar transceiver project that faded before launch.
