Based on the same Intel 7 processing architecture technology, 13th Gen hybrid processors feature two types of processing cores: performance-cores (P-cores) and efficient-cores ( E-cores). P-cores are more powerful running key applications faster while E-cores running at a lower frequency run secondary applications. The combination of power guzzling P-cores and slower power-efficient E-cores makes better use of per watt power, it runs cooler and runs single and multitasking apps faster than the 12th gen chips.
