Yes, this is what I have been saying.

It is possible, with a dedicated camera/flash ttl auto thyristor system, that 
the flash unit will compensate
for the faster shutter speeds with more power output.

With a studio flash you can just use a flash meter and measure the difference 
in light capture at different
shutter speeds.
