Dorico 4 on Apple M1: comparing rosetta and native modes

Now that we have a native Apple Silicon version of Dorico in D4, how much difference do users with an M1 processor find between operating in rosetta mode versus native mode?

My 16" M1 Pro does the 1000-bar condense benchmark in 3183 ms in Rosetta, and 2305 ms native – so around 38% faster.
By comparison, my Intel 6-core i5 2018 Mini does it in 3818 ms.


In case you’re wondering what the “1000-bar condense benchmark” is, see this earlier thread.
