I'm assuming you meant Ryzen (3rd generation) and not Threadripper right? Threadripper would be a massive overkill expenditure for a gaming rig, so I'm just clarifying. If you are meaning Ryzen 3rd gen though I would definitely wait, especially if the 15% IPC icrease is true it would be a great all around chip that wouldn't limit you to just gaming but allow full multi-tasking purposes for whatever your needs/wants may be. Just my 2 cents
