The A12Z chipset was the best performing chipset from Apple despite being on a 7nm process, well that was before the M1 was unveiled.

That said, the A14 chip has a 2+4 CPU configuration, compared to the 4+4 on the M1. The A14 GPU also has half the cores of the M1. This makes the MacBook chipset 78% faster in the CPU department and 2.5x faster in GPU performance.
