It is meaningless.
The double-speak is meaningless since it only equals one.

But the dialogue itself still indicates an increase in capability - so it isn't completely meaningless. Just sayin'

This dialog is there to make it sound like technical jargon is being spoken, even though none is. The average viewer probably isn't very good at math (not that good) and can't tell the difference, anyway. From that point of view, the dialog's perfectly effective and isn't something the writers, actors, or director need to sweat.
Yes, why were we even focusing on this dialogue anyway?
