One game thread is one real thread with no distinction. For some ultra heavy games like Persona 5 you will see a benefit from more cores. For other simpler games there is no gain (except for some general performance improvement thanks to more cache maybe?). For example Atelier runs almost as fast (or slow) on an i3 as on an i7.

Anyway, RPCS3 can become a lot faster in the future, but some edge cases like games based on the FrostBite engine (and some more) do use every SPU for rendering so they may "never" be fast enough on a 4 core CPU, but who knows, these games don't work yet anyway so we can only speculate.

But today and for almost every game a i7-7700k is just fine. If it isn't fast enough it's likely no other CPU is either and you would have to wait for RPCS3 improvements.
