If you are talking about the new round cross section laminated iron cores made
by stacking laminations of varying width (sorry I forget the mfgr), then the
main advantage is you can make a turn of wire around a given volume of iron
with less wire, thus less copper loss. There is also less strain on the wire
insulation from elimination of sharp bends on the corners, and an associated
reduction in the insulation required between windings and core (per the mfgr).
Supposedly the reduced costs of winding and insulation offsets the higher
cost of the cores (again per the mfgr).
