Ryzen 7 1700 vs Ryzen 5 2600X

Can somebody help me with deciding what is a better choice between these 2? I love those extra cores and threads on R7,but 2600X's clocks are so much higher and it is a newer generation.

If you're gaming, 2600X.

If you're doing productivity, 1700

Main PC:  MacBook Air (M1, 2020), 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage; running macOS, but waiting for Linux to be ported to the M1

Both are good, however if your case is Micro-ATX you need to go for the Mortar.

 

For other options, you can consider the B450-F Strix (ATX), B450 Pro4 (ATX) and B450M Pro4 (MicroATX)
