And assume that both are consistently rated A over the next few years, and that the increment for A performers is 10%. Over time, the salary gap between X and Y is going to widen. 3 years later, for example, X's salary will rise to $8k while Y's salary will only rise to 4k.

That is how it works in practice. That is why the Fresh graduate Y MUST job hop to another company after 3 years and his pay will be about 5k+
