GCC also does not generate the best code on pretty
much any architecture and on more than enough of the architecures it supports it generates really poor code.

Can you somehow back up this claim?

From my experiences Mingw-GCC on Windows with O3 generates MUCH faster code than MSVC (dunno about 2010 though). I've done some numeric computations benchmarks.
