But what I was referring to is that while above examples produce huge amount of data in the output and can therefore never be significantly faster by definition, the example I gave does not give big amounts of data as output.
Yes, as you correctly noted, what matters is not the output but the quantity of data it has to process. The large output usually means large amount of data, but the other way is not true - even queries outputting one item or nothing at all can require large working sets.
