Help with spec of new iMac/iMac Pro

My current 207 iMac has the following spec:

4.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7
32 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
Radeon Pro 8GB
2TB SSD

I am running Lightroom Classic, Lightroom Mobile, Luminar 4 and also the following plugins:

Topaz Labs Sharpen AI
Topaz Labs Denoise AI
Topaz Labs Gigapixel AI
Topaz Labs Adjust AI
Full Nik Suite, but tend to use Silver Efx Pro and Viveza the most

The Topaz Labs processing, especially with Sharpen AI, can take several minutes with 47Mp files (sometimes up to 6 minutes per image). I have read conflicting reports stating that the Xeon processors in the iMac Pro aren't preferred for the Topaz Labs plugins.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
