Apple 27inch 2017 vs 2019

Hi everyone. Quick question. I'm upgrading my mac and looking to get a Imac 27inch and there is two choices for me. A 2017 imac 27 inch which has a quad core 3.8 and AMD Radeon Pro 580 or a 2019 6 core but a 3.0 processer and AMD Radeon Pro 570X 4 GB . I cant decided between the two as the slightly older one has slightly better spec whereas the new one has 6 core but a bit slower processer. I'm doing mostly sound design with logic and some stand alone software, I do some production with protools, drum resampling with steve slate drummer. A bit of gaming, world of warcraft. nothing too crazy but I'd like to avoid lag, which mixing, editing and sound design projects. Problems I've had in the past is mainly my projects stop mid where once a get a few plug-ins going. Any help would be great.

As a start, I suggest you have a look here and follow any links. My instinct suggests that the newer machine wii, overall, be faster.
