Which compiler is used for the official (windows) NAMD binaries

Dear All.

Does anyone happen to know which compiler is used for the official
(windows) NAMD binaries?
While playing with a simple program (that just calculates a mandelbrot
fractal) I found that the intel compiler (v10) preforms about 7 times better
than MinGW (GCC) and about 3 times better than Visual studio 2009. The
increase probably comes from the use of SSE3 extensions.
Did anyone play around with compilers and NAMD?
