A Mekanism machine upgrade to make them process items faster, you can install 8 of these in each Mekanism machine. If you were to apply speed upgrades to a factory, the power consumption is accumulative. For example, if each operation were to cost 50J/t, a basic factory with 3 ongoing operations will cost 150J/t.
HINT: Upgrade your power setup before upgrading your machines, as the power usage per tick begins to escalate with every speed upgrade applied, requiring more power to complete a single machine process.
HINT: If you plan to use Speed Upgrades for a machine, it is advised to also install Energy Upgrades and Gas Upgrades if applicable.

Here's a tables:

# of Speed Upgrades Speed Multiplier Time per Operation (20 ticks = 1 sec) Relative Speed Power Usage Total Power Usage for each Operation
0 1x 200 ticks 100% 50 J/t 10,000 J
1 1.33x 149 ticks 134.2% 88 J/t 13,112 J
2 1.78x 112 ticks 178.6% 158 J/t 17,696 J
3 2.37x 84 ticks 238.1% 281 J/t 23,604 J
4 3.16x 63 ticks 317.5% 500 J/t 31,500 J
5 4.22x 47 ticks 425.5% 889 J/t 41,783 J
6 5.62x 35 ticks 571.4% 1,580 J/t 55,300 J
7 7.5x 26 ticks 769.2% 2,810 J/t 73,060 J
8 10.0x 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%

The formula to calculate the energy used is DefaultUsage × EnergyMultiplier(2 × SpeedUpgrades-EnergyUpgrades)/8. DefaultUsage is the default energy used by a machine. EnergyMultiplier is a configurable multiplier that defaults to 10.

This table qualifies the rate of energy/speed efficiency with varying amounts of upgrades applied.

Speed/Energy 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
