A lot of these are outdated.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.
Two concerns :
-This was a svn, pre-beta build of GCC, so compilation performance has probably improved a bit (though one should test this).
-Also, I would like to know how code generated by ICC behaves on AMD processors.
You do have a point about ICC not being outdated, and being faster on at least some Intel processors, though. Edited 2010-10-08 18:48 UTC
