The MAME code generated by modern compilers just performs better on Intel chips in most cases. Some times, a LOT better. I don't think anyone is really sure why.

Either it's a quirk in the Intel CPU architecture that just works better with MAME's code, or the compilers are just falling down on the job when it comes to generating optimized AMD code.
