> Sorry for confusing you but I think it depends on how we describe the speedup. Yes the time is reduced by 45%, but considering the speed it's a 80~90% improvement. Just like we see "2X speedup" more often than "50% improvement" when the time to complete a job is shortened from 2s to 1s.

The change from 269 to 503 is ~85%. The change from 503 to 269 is -45%.  It seems nonsensical to describe the speedup in terms of what regression it would take to get back to the original performance.
