% damage explanation

there is something that I don't understand at all:

for example:

my console quantum phase converter has : + 23.8% phaser damage
and
my console ordnance accelerator has : + 23.8% phaser direct energy weapon

when I use the first one, the dps on 1 of my weapons epic pulse phaser MK XV crtd/dm Crtdx4 is 1580.9 dps but with the 2nd console it is 1578.5 dps. why with the same %, i don't have the same dps.

All these tooltips make me crazy. lol

    honestly those are so close that they're easily within the margin on error, that's at 4 points of difference and that's assuming that 1578.5 truly means 1578 and 1580.9 means 1581. weapon tooltips are best used as a "rule of thumb" as as the calculations can be quite fluid and rarely show the accurate DPS.

    for example the first console could actually be +23.82334343% while the second is +23.77434342% both would round to 23.8% with 3 signifigant numbers but would effect the tooltips differently.
