Does lowering frame rate lower CPU usage?

I am trying to conserve computer resources. If I lower the frame rate of OpenCV, will that lower CPU time? I am thinking of running at 10fps. Thanks for your input! This is machine to machine application. No human interface.

generally yes

if there’s anything independent of frame rate, then that part won’t.

Thanks for your comment. I forgot to say that I am just using HAAR Cascades.
