Cubase performance on Macbook Air M1 vs AMD 3950x

I’m just wondering if anyone knows why Cubase loads about 40% faster on my Macbook Air M1 vs AMD 3950x. The 3950x is a beast of a machine and it can load more tracks than the M1 Air so I was surprised at this.
Also, when I use Softube Console One on a project (32 instances) on my PC (3950x), it takes 13 seconds to unload the project whereas almost immediate with the M1 Air.
Any ideas?

Apples vs oranges. M1 has tight integrated RAM, and a fast NVME.
My Intel MacBook Pro boots faster than my Hack workstation, but in practice my Hack is 3 times as powerful.
