You are probably still getting enough performance to hang in there a while longer. It's hard for anyone to say you will or won't get significantly faster results without exactly duplicating your file format and workflow. A new machine - iMac Pro or Mac Pro - will likely be faster/better, but does the cost offset the performance gains? Unknown.

You may get better transcode speeds, if - 1 )you use background transcode, and/or 2) export to ProRes first. If you use background transcode, that optimized media will be used in your export, so the export is faster. If you export to ProRes and then transcode that flat ProRes master file for Vimeo, the total time may be faster than a direct export to Vimeo specs.
