It's not whether or not the processors are capable of doing arithmetic though (DSP), it's the relative performance vs other chips when streaming multi-gigabyte sample libraries at super low latencies etc. We can easily see that one x86 chip is not the same as another, so the differences with completely different architectures should be bigger. Maybe they'll be better or the same, but maybe they will be significantly worse.

I don't see much chat concerning the latter possibility, which is strange considering that Apple can't release a new macOS version on the same architecture without significant issues.
