    This is really telling. Intel sleeping or something?

    Could be the case indeed that Apple switches all its laptops to A-chips in near future.

    Hugh difference between benchmarks and actual power. It's really easy to make a mobile chip give a high benchmark score, it's really hard to sustain that level. Opposite for CPU's

    this means nothing the differences between what an arm chip is doing and what a computer CPU is doing is so vast as to make these comparisons pointless and misleading.

    This is like running a passenger car against a semi and going "Holy crap look how much faster the car is, Eddie Stobart are now going to swap their trucks out for Nissan Micras"

    Cinebench uses closed-source tests which makes them completely pointless for cross-platform comparison. Most you can do is compare hardware running on the same platform.

    Seems like the tester had fun running the benchmarks! It's funny how he gets excited comparing numbers that have no direct correlation.
