especially when they are probably running on hardware that wasn't manufactured 5 years ago, and in that case LLVM probably compiles for CPU features and architecture optimizations that the five-year-old GCC 4.2 couldn't possibly know about.

Apple's GCC isn't 5 years old, it is forked from code that is 5 years old, but they've surely made changes in that time, and could have added support for newer processors.
