"Algorithm X is faster than algorithm Y" is a meaningless statement. It should be something like "this implementation of algorithm X on this platform is faster than this implementation of algorithm Y on this platform, for this class of test cases". If you change the implementations, or the platform, or the class of test cases, the statement might become false.

"Algorithm X is faster than algorithm Y" is a meaningless statement. It should be something like "this implementation of algorithm X on this platform is faster than this implementation of algorithm B on this platform, for the this class of test cases". If you change the implementations, or the platform, or the class of test cases, the statement might become false.
