Okay, I'm looking for hard evidence to settle an argument.
From a developers perspective, the argument of CPU usage and battery life comes into play often.
If a CPU is throttled to use 10% of its capacity, thus taking 10x as long to complete a process,
Is it not just as efficient for the CPU to be set to 100% and have it complete the process sooner? And then be idle
I ask this from a battery perspective. We want to know if lowering CPU freq can actually allow you to preform more processing tasks? OR if it just allows you to do more, slower, but over more time.
I've re-worded the example to better explain what I mean.
