The TSCP chess benchmark has ended with GCC 10 being the slowest of the tested compilers.

The OpenMP-threaded GraphicsMagick has seen performance improvements out of GCC 10 and in some cases GCC 9 too.

VP9 libvpx is seeing better performance with GCC 10.

Coremark has been improving with the annual GCC compiler updates but slid back slightly with GCC 10.

With succeeding GCC releases, the build time generally increases due to additional optimization passes and other work in the name of faster and/or smaller binaries.

The Tungsten renderer has been faster past GCC 6.
