I'm working with 4K footage in Premiere CC 2017. Working with effects and color correction is extremely slow. Using Lumetri CC panel is the worst offender, it takes 30+ seconds for an effect adjustment to show up on screen making it pretty much useless for subtle correction - if you blink at the wrong time you might not even see the change. I utilized past forum suggestions to speed up the work, but they're mostly older posts, and I didn't see any results when I tried the suggestions so I shelled out to upgrade my graphics card hoping that would fix the problem. It has made only a slight difference. Any recommendations on what is working for others would be appreciated.

Well you really need major CPU upgrade. Faster clock and more cores.
I was hoping that was not the only option as I can't afford to do so right now. If that is the only solution, would either of these upgrades be enough to have real time color correction and effects work?
3.33GHz **6-Core** 'Westmere' (Intel W3680, 6-Cores, QPI: 6.4GT/s)
Or would these not be enough either?
Well it is hard to guarantee anything but if you run my Premiere Pro BenchMark (PPBM) and submit the results so I can see how your current system scores I can try predicting what you will be able to do.
