For floating point intensive code, MSVC is hard to beat at this time. However,
for majority of the `real-life' numerical code, it doesn't matter all that much
as long as the compiler codegen performance is reasonably close.
For more info on compilers on x86-win32, please take the discussion elsewhere
such as comp.os.ms-windows.programmer.win32 or other compiler forums; this list
is certainly not the right forum for it.
