M1 vs. intel performance

i recently bought a new macbook pro 14" to upgrade my system. all in all a great maschine but when i compared rendering speed and cpu performance while mastering in wavelab, my old pc ( i5-4690 16 gig ram) from 2012 performs better than the new m1 pro. i guess this is caused by the non m1 native plugins running on rosetta2.
this is a real bummer. i thought the m1 easy outperforms the old pc…
what was your experience when switching from intel to m1? any toughts or tips??
