Wireless. Should there be speed differences between AES and TKIP?

On Wxxx WPA2-AES which is supposed to be more secure and faster we get an average ping latency of 20ms with s 2% Loss:
Ping statistics for 213.176.14.153:
    Packets: Sent = 73, Received = 71, Lost = 2 (2% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 359ms, Average = 20m

However when we do the same test using the Wxxx WPA-TPIK security setting we get a 3ms ping latency.
Ping statistics for 213.176.14.153:
    Packets: Sent = 57, Received = 57, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 1ms, Maximum = 47ms, Average = 3ms

On normal Ethernet we get less than 1ms latency
Ping statistics for 213.176.14.153:
    Packets: Sent = 146, Received = 146, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 4ms, Average = 0ms

Hi,To put it simply,AES and

Hi,

To put it simply,
AES and TKIP are encryption types. So, typically their packets have sizes, w/c contribute to data.
AES has higher packet size. To add, they periodically authenticate, thus contributing again to traffic

Nonetheless, whatever you are using, im pretty sure they are miniscule
Speed mainly matters to the power level you are tx/rx -71dBm is recommended, your channel and how congested it is, your noise level (high power does not always guarantee good speed) and the protocol and radio you are connected to 802.11a/b/g/n/ac etc.
