Portable and compile ver of GMP

I read one paper and they compare their work with two versions of GMP, I
know how to use "compiled GMP" which (in that paper) has lower execution
time as the data size increases because it uses different algorithms, and
adaptively switches from a slower to a faster algorithm depending on the
data size and according to certain thresholds while the "portable version"
doesn't have that. Is it true?
