It's calculating a -13,564 DPS downgrade for me if I switch from a 100% crit damage emerald to a ruby.
I thought the ruby would be better if you had a lot of attack speed?

The two weapons you are comparing aren't equivalent, tho. The 2nd weapon does twice as much dps as the first one, so the overall damage with ruby or emerald scales linearly.
I'm talking about the difference between 2 weapons that have the same base dps but where one has higher attack speed.
Weapon 1: 1 aps, 1000 damage per hit, 1 socket, 100% crit chance, 100% crit damage bonus.
You've already done the math - its 3000 dps with an emerald and 3000 dps with a 500 damage super-ruby.
Weapon 2: 2aps, 500 damage per hit, 1 socket, 100% crit chance, 100% crit damage bonus.
Note that the base dps of weapon 2 is exactly the same as the base dps of weapon 1 - the only difference is weapon 2 hits twice as fast and half as hard.
With emerald: 2*500*3(hundred%) = 3000 dps
With ruby: 2*(500+500)*2(hundred%) = 4000 dps
Additional ias from other gear would just be a constant multiplier for both weapons and is ultimately irrelevant, but I definitely think base attack speed and damage do make a difference in how each gem performs.
It sounds like you're trying to compare ruby in one weapon to emerald in a different weapon
