> In QtCreator it uses "Make" to do the compile and by default it will only use a single thread Where Xcode would by default use all your cores to compile. You need to add a "-jN" to the "make argument" in the "Project" tab of QtCreator. Where "N" is the number of cores on your computer. That will speed things up.

Actually, it's may be better to use N+1 instead of N.

Also, xcodebuild is know to be slower than GNU make when running the same number of parallel jobs
