                Original        Transposed
    Cycles	16,765,297,870  3,922,373,010
    Relative	100%            23.4%

Through the simple transformation of the matrix we can achieve a 76.6% speed-up!
I could wrong, but I think that is a speedup of 427.4%, not 76.6%

76.6% speedup

I think it's ambiguous. While it's clear that it's a 427% increase in speed and a 77% decrease in slowness, "speed-up" might refer to either of those, and also to the 77% reduction in execution time.

For practical use, I believe per centages of execution time are more useful than per centages of speed because time is the limited resource.
