So I looked around but couldn't find an answer to my question. I'm sure it must have been asked somewhere but I couldn't find it. I would like to know if two different clock speeds with the same voltage use the same amount of energy. My g2 kernel goes as low as 300mhz but in my voltage testing the lowest voltage it can handle is 675mv. However I found that I can use that same voltage at 422mhz and still be stable. Would they both consume the same amount of energy? I've noticed cpu usage is slightly higher at 300 vs 422. I'm guessing that is because it takes longer to process. Does the cpu usage play into the energy used? Or does it still use the same amount of energy and it just takes longer to complete the process. Is there a formula to figure out which is best? Thanks for reading!
Thanks for the input. I guess another way to look at my question would be does the cpu use whatever the set voltage no matter the usage? Does 300mhz use 675mv no matter what the cpu usage is? If that is true then it would be better for my phone to run at 422mhz since the voltage being used is the same.
