The Intel Core P sits somewhere between the company’s even more power-efficient U-series and the company’s mighty H-series of mobile processors. In this line, Intel has opted for a hybrid architecture that allows different combinations of cores to achieve high performance or high energy efficiency, depending on the workloads and workloads.
Many manufacturers have released updated laptops based on P-series processors, but in real-world use cases, the new chips were significantly less power efficient than expected. As The Verge noted, this affected almost all laptops with rare exceptions (for example, LG Gram) – reduced heat dissipation to 28 W did not have a significant positive effect on the power consumption of devices, and the presence from “large” cores of the H series in the processor, on the contrary, led to even higher consumption.
Among the positives of Intel’s P-series processors, of course, are significantly higher multicore performance, more cache, and better graphics performance. However, this “hanging” positioning of P processors hardly works in Intel’s favor: professionals choose the H-series for the highest possible performance, while people who do not perform complex computing tasks on their devices and need more battery life the battery, they buy U-devices in series.
