I was blown away by it myself and almost didn't beleive it. I've seen comparable results with other C++ code bases.

Wow, that is good.

(often HPC code will depend heavily on an optimized math library) and everybody's codebase and workload is different,

Yes we've joked about that in development, compiler benchmarking (and even language benchmarking) in many cases end up being a comparison of which one comes with the most optimized math lib for your particular platform.
