The x86-native compiler. VC10 also has an x86=>x64 cross-compiler, and an x64-native compiler (this is the one that reserves tons of address space for its PCH, because it can). Additionally, VC10 had x86=>IA-64 cross, and VC11 has x86=>ARM cross.

(If all of our compilers were x64-hosted, then PCH size problems would vanish in a puff of smoke.)

As the compiler changes their data structures, they change the PCH size default accordingly.
