How are Powder Cores different?

Powder cores are a small but important family of materials that bridge the gap between low frequency strip cores and high frequency ferrite cores. Their unique combination of high saturation flux, relatively low core loss and distributed airgap makes powder cores an ideal solution for chokes and inductors used in many power conversion applications.

Why are powder cores better? That really should have been why are powder cores sometimes better...
