Ryzen 5 2600(x) vs Ryzen 7 1700

So, in my country the r5 2600/x is similar piced as the r7 1700 (190/200 and 210 euros respectively).I wont be doing just gaming, so my question is should i go with the newer architecture and better ipc r5 or with the older but with more cores 1700 (price is almost equal when you account the 10-15 euros I will need to pay for the bios update, non of my friends have a gen 1 ryzen nor i have the budget or patientce to buy a x470 or order the upgread apu from amd.)

    I know there some X470 motherboard you can buy that let you overclock the cache on the 1st gen. to the same speed as 2nd gen.. That where AMD got most of the increase to IPC.

  • Well, buying a x470 mobo with a first gen ryzen looks weird to me.I guess that way i will have an r7 with ipc closer to zen+ but still...Besides I am more of a casual overclocker.

    The cache overclocking it just one button it the same way if you were to use the XMP profile for your ram.
