Hi Laurence,

You are missing one crucial point, and that is you are
ignoring the impedance(Resistance) of the actual
processor involved!

Are you saying then that the impedance of the processor involved changes?

v = electrical potential(voltage)
i = current
r = resistance
p = power

v = i * r
p = v * i

or with substitution,
p = i^2 * r

Now, if you believe that with higher voltage, you will
get higher power, then you should also believe the
next few lines:

I am not saying that with higher voltage you get higher power,
I am saying that with higher voltage you get lower current at the same power.

Case 1
Voltage = V1
Power used = 30w
resistance(constant) = R2

Case 2
Voltage = V2 higher than V1
Power used = 35w
resistance(constant) = R2

using p = i^2 * r, you should find that the second
current is higher than the first. Current cant and
wont stay constant. If you have a different proof, I
would like to see it.

Are you saying that as the processing load increases,
the power (wattage) increases
or that the impedance (resistance) increases?

If you are saying that
