Macbook Pro 14 -16 2021 - screen 83% aRGB

I found a couple of sites that indicate the aRGB value of the new MBP screens:

sRGB is basically 99-100%

but aRGB is 83% (found on you tube site) and

on Tomsguide measured as 77% of DCI-P3.

I initially thought the DCI was 100% but if you look at the apple site tech spec, they don't specify the percentage of DCI (sneaky?)

Also i saw past 16inch MBP 2020 had 99% DCI-P3 (measured), so has the new MBP gone backwards in terms of screen colours?

I'm keen to see reviews how this screen calibrates for photographers.

For 99% of photographers this lower aRGB shouldn't be an issue, but for product photographers, having full set of colours helps production.

My current 2016 MBP 13 has a greenish white screen so quite difficult to edit walls that should be white. This is even after calibration with i1. In Capture 1 I use the colour picker to check the RGB values as I can't rely on the screen.

Any thoughts? or any of details would be welcome on the new screens?
