I propose to reconsider this view.

1. I would appreciate if you would share more technical details about your test environment
   for a safer comparison.

2. The observed software behaviour can be clarified further, can't it?
   Aspects like the following can trigger corresponding development considerations.
   * “noticable” differences (depending on the run time environment)
   * measurable effects
   * mathematical properties of an algorithm
