Hi i need to know this, along with other components. i need a link to a professional website, not just a blog because im doing a research project and i need to cite...

Thanks!

Sounds like you need to do your own research for school. Google will help you with a simple search.

You may want to look into the transistor and why it heats up. Since cpus have millions+ of them, you will have your answer.

In short, Nothing is 100% efficient and cpus despite getting better(still turn most of the power into heat) still transform a good portion of the power coming in to them into heat.

Laptops due to a small space for heat sinks and fans will get hotter(Unless its a R3000 from HP, that had great cooling :)  ), but the chips are generally the best of the best(Lower power and lower heat) and designed to take the heat(from the lower powered cooling system) without damage.
