Default new PC: will PT performance jump?

I've been using Pro Tools every day for a few years now. I've been pricing out a new build and have pretty much settled on it.

I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance that this will increase PT performance, particularly with regard to "ran out of processing power" type error messages.

I manage those by limiting heavy plugins as much as possible and freezing tracks that are more or less complete as I'm working on other stuff. But I'd prefer to solve that issue once and for all.

My current system is Win 7 Pro 64X, Intel Core i7 960 @ 3.20GHz, 24.0GB DDR3 @ 666MHz.

What I'm considering would be Win 10 Pro, Intel Core i7 9700k @ 3.60 GHz, 64.0GB DDR4 @ 3200MHz.

Would this be a significant jump?

Edit: I've only ever used PT on my current system and have nothing to compare it to.
