3D-FFT under both situations is 21.4% and PME mesh down as 54% (figures taken from the second last and last tables in the .log file, respectively).

IIRC icc does a better job on mkl than gcc. Of course you need to make
sure the PME job is being dominated by the FFT part to be sure you're
measuring a relevant speed difference. The output at the end of the log
file reveals this.
