Talk is cheap, real benchmarks are more telling.
Here's another from 2010:

Finally one that is relevant. Gcc 4.5 has been out for quite a while now and Gcc 4.6 is reaching end of stage one this month. Very impressive results for ICC on the pi_fftc6 test.

This looks good for gcc since Intel recently hired longtime gcc developers CodeSourcery to work on (amongst other things) improving optimizations for the core ix range in gcc.

edit: oh, and here is the latest (ever?) smackdown if anyone is interested, still quite outdated though:
