"Best" Noise Reduction software for M1 iMac?

I have a 2021 M1 iMac (also running Windows 11 under Parallels but not for Photographic purposes) and looking for suggestions about Noise Reduction software to try.

I use Apple Photos for DAM and some basic editing. When that doesn't suffice I also have Pixelmator Pro (for things that Apple Photos can't do or can't do easily) and just purchased Luminar NEO.

I shoot with the Olympus EM5m3 and the Sony RX100m5 and generally shoot RAW+JPEG. I am not a person obsessed with noise (still remember Kodak Tri-X 400 LOL) but there are times I need higher ISO settings and while I think both cameras handle noise pretty well in the JPEGs, at times I prefer using the RAW files and doing it myself. Had an older Mac program - Noiseless by Macphun - which unfortunately has not been updated in several years and requires the Noiseless CK version to work on RAW files which apparently has been discontinued.

Thanks for any suggestions.
