Apple M2 more powerful than Snapdragon 8 Gen 1?

The Apple M2 seen by Cpu-monkey provides better performance than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Although a powerful processor, its execution frequency is lower than that of the Apple M2. Beyond that, the amount of RAM supported is lacking and the Apple M2 admits more than double what the Sdg 8 Gen 1 can support.
