Probably nearer 3 to 4 months until retail but to be honest I'm not bothered. By getting an X470 mobo I can still upgrade to Zen 2 and probably Zen 3 (if it comes out in 2020) and still be good to go. PCIE 4.0 meh as I'm sure at 1440p I'm no where near saturating PCIE 3 and as PCIE 4 will be new it will take some time for everything else to catch up. An Nvidia 2080ti won't become defunct overnight just because PCIE 4 comes out.
As the saying goes a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
