Upfront, I don't dispute that a 2020 13" MacBook Pro can outperform a 2019 16" MacBook Pro. My posting isn't about that. Especially since there are a lot of different technology elements that I haven't studied. So how does a Intel Core i7-1068NG7 (4 cores) running at 2.3 GHz out perform a Intel Core i9-9980HK @ 2.4 GHz (8 cores)? I noticed the newer i7's are 14 nanometers. And the 2020 MBP 13" can have be configured with more RAM than the 16". I need a compute intensive machine (sorry, Apple bigot, leave it at that), and my 2015 MBP struggles with multi-person zoom and CAD programs. I've priced used 2018 MBPs with 32GB RAM that are only a couple hundred dollars cheaper than a new 2020 MBPs with equivalent RAM. Want to have an handle on all the issues before making a $2K investment. Thanks...

I am referring to the Mac Benchmarks in the Geekbench Browser. 2nd from the top, as of today, is
MacBook Pro (13-inch Mid 2020)
Intel Core i7-1068NG7 @ 2.3 GHz (4 cores) with a single core of 1229
vs. in 16th place:
MacBook Pro (16-inch Late 2019)
Intel Core i9-9980HK @ 2.4 GHz (8 cores) with a single core score 1112
