What's the popular view on the energy or work required to perform computation? I can't find any information on this online. Is a minimum of energy or work required to achieve a particular computation? Or is perhaps computation a kind of work?

Computers can of course be made more and more efficient with advancing technologies, but eventually, we get to atomic scale or Planck scale and quanta and what have you, so one might think that there's a minimum of work that must be done to perform any given computational task, regardless of how fast it's performed.

Does this make sense?
