Threadripper for gaming

Hi guys, is threadrippaaaar a good CPU for gaming?

I want an "all round" rig, I want to have a lot of cores for VM and code compiling but I even want to game at max.

Is threadripper good for this purpose or it is too weak for a gaming rig?

It would be cheaper to just wait for the 3950x in nov
Unless you need more than 12 or 16 cores Threadripper is way overkill for a gaming machine
