A Mekanism machine upgrade to make them process items faster each Mekanism machine can store 8 of these upgrades.
HINT: upgrade your power setup before upgrading your machines, as the power usage per tick begins to escalate with every energy upgrade applied, requiring more power to complete a single machine process.
HINT: (For machines that use gasses) Machines consume gasses based on how long they are running. that means using speed upgrades will increase the gas efficiency.
Heres a table of the various parameters regarding upgrades:
|Speed Indicated||Absolute Speed (20 ticks = 1 sec)||Relative Speed||Power Usage||Total Power Usage for each Operation|
|x1||200 ticks||100%||50 j/t||10 000 j|
|x2||149 ticks||134.2%||88 j/t||13 112 j|
|x3||112 ticks||178.6%||158 j/t||17 696 j|
|x4||84 ticks||238.1%||281 j/t||23 604 j|
|x5||63 ticks||317.5%||500 j/t||31 500 j|
|x6||47 ticks||425.5%||889 j/t||41 783 j|
|x7||35 ticks||571.4%||1 580 j/t||55 300 j|
|x8||26 ticks||769.2%||2 810 j/t||73 060 j|
|x9||20 ticks||1000%||5 000 j/t||100 000 j|
note that every speed upgrade makes the machine 33% faster, and the Power Usage increases with ~77% (33²%), which makes for an increase in power usage for each operation with 33%
