Yes, that's true.

That used to be the case, but not so anymore.  Intel compilers generate
just fine code for AMD processors.  Since AMD doesn't produce their
own compilers, it's likely on par with any other vendor producing an
AMD compiler.

Well, except for Cray, that is.  :)


But hey, we use LLVM to do it!
