MBPPro 8 to 16Gb ram increase, worth it for aperture and D800

I have a 2011 MBP 13" which has 8Gb of RAM and I use Aperture for processing large (36mb) raw files from my D800. I know from other recent threads that I can upgrade to 16Gb quite easily.

My question is how much more time will I save processing these files with the extra RAM? Is this a RAM dependant task or more a processor dependant task?

Is it worth it? (Ram costs about £100).
Cheers, BB
