Well, it was not me who measured M1, but rather Andrei and @sallymander. Please read #42ff. for further details. But how I see it, it is pretty much "apples to apples". And who does really care if the advantage is 400% or 500%?I'm not sure you're comparing apples to apples in the single thread efficiency score. How do the chips compare in multi-threaded? Comparing the power consumption, especially single thread, between different architectures (especially Apple silicon) can be tricky because they report things in different ways. There's also significantly more IO support on the x86 side compared to M1 which will show the largest impact on idle and single threaded power consumption if you are taking package power on x86 as your measurement.
