Neutral compiler

I would like to see benchmarks from a neutral compiler (gcc?) compiled code just to be sure about who is the leader now on clock-by-clock base.

As a developer, I can say that any of them is pretty good for my needs and probably will buy my next machine with a huge electrical cost on mind as my main machine stays on most of the time.

If energy efficiency is your thing why not go with mobile components?
