Very few of his comments regarding the speed improvement of the Pi 3 vs the Pi 2 seem to add up. His tables say one thing and his comments say another. How about this, taken from the article’s MemTester section:

2 Model B 23 minutes 39.07 seconds
3 Model B 8 minutes 37.078 seconds

“In this case the Pi 3 is more than 50% faster than the Pi 2 at allocating and accessing RAM.”

While technically true, the actual performance improvement is 174%. :-P
