If the data seems to be correct, it appears like Apple will probably 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 beneath Intel Core i9-10850K, AMD Ryzen 7 5800X, and Intel Core i9-7900X), on each counts.
