Road bike like tires for Cyclocross

Hello newbie here, I got a 2020 Merida Mission CX 400 bought it by end of 2020, I wanted to replace my tires since they're all worn out ( 700x33c Mud Wrestlers ), but I want fast rolling tires ( Roadbike like tires ) as replacement since all I do these days are long trips and crits on asphalt no gravel or mud for a while, your suggestions are greatly appreciated thanks!

I am a big fan of Continental GP5000's. I run them in 32mm on my CX bike and it's a good combo. These are fast rolling and durable, and at that width they can handle a lot of hardpack gravel trails and roads as well.
Rene Herse gets a lot of love on this forum for wider tires as well. I've never tried them, but they look to be really light weight and fast rolling so if you're looking for something bigger than 32mm with a slick/minimal tread, that might also be a good choice.

Are you running tubeless or tubed?

You can get the Continentals in tube version. They are a really nice tire.
