> CPUs turn watts into performance. A 45W CPU will deliver 3x the performance of a 15W CPU.

Can you provide a reference for this?

I'm pretty sure a CPU turns watts into HEAT and PERFORMANCE,

The 15W you're talking about is the TDP, which describe HEAT. This tells you about battery life mainly. Ghz is the unit of PERFORMANCE.
