A lot of these are outdated. They use GCC 4.3, 4.2, and, would you believe it, one (clamAV) even uses GCC 3.4 ! ^^'

The sole test using up-to-date GCC is the 2010 one, and it shows that GCC 4.5 is often pretty close to ICC in terms of performance, although compilation is much slower.


It at least shows that the common belief is well founded. If you want to find and show some newer benchmarks then by all means please do, I don't have an emotional attachment to any compiler.
