I have no idea; 
I work almost exclusively with Linux for Lazarus/FPC. 
On the rare cases I compile something for windows, I notice that the same project still compiles less fast.
The IDE itself is a good testcase there :-)

But Florian or Jonas should be able to answer this question more precisely.
