According to previous rumors, AMD is working on hybrid architecture desktop APUs with Zen 4 and Zen 4c cores. Zen 4c cores have a lower clock speed and can therefore perform simpler tasks more efficiently. AMD released its hybrid architecture laptop CPUs earlier this month.

Intel has been using a hybrid architecture for some time, although there is a greater difference between performance and efficiency cores.
