Adobe After Effects: do I need a new CPU? (8 vs 4 cores)

Hi all,

I'm using After Effect to stabilise my videos. Some are 8K videos.

It's a very heavy process, when every second of footage takes a few minutes to process (this sounds dramatic, but I try to do wildlife videos and frankly I'm lucky when I get a clip that lasts more than 30 seconds).

My current CPU is an i7 6700k with just four cores. Is there going to be a significant change if I get an i7-12700K or a Ryzen 7 5800X with 8 cores?

Thanks for your help.
