I don't recall the details, but I believe that all of the architecture, 
base compiler version, nickname and probably other stuff factor into it.

Upgrading the system compiler (in particular) can have a significant 
impact on the performance results, so I think this behavior makes sense. 
If you strongly disagree and want to change it, go for it.
