They may be faster (in some cases… it all depends on the code in question very much), but as far as “better standards support”… let's check: Intel compiler - 17 “N/A” out of 39 (vs 4 “N/A” out of 39 for GCC), the PGI compiler and Pathscale are not even mentioned.
These three compilers have much better Fortran strandards support, but this is another kettle of fish: Fortran was always quite weak in GCC because GCC is primarily C and C++ compiler.
