If the data seems to be correct, it appears like Apple shall be focussing extra on bumping up each the compute and graphics efficiency of its new chipset.
The itemizing suggests a Cinebench R23 single-core rating of 1514 and a multi-core rating of 14450 for the Apple M1X, rating it under Intel Core i9-10850Ok, AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, and Intel Core i9-7900X), on each counts.
