See https://support.pagely.com/hc/en-us/art ... -WordPress:

Generally speaking, the differences are:
  • GD is generally a slight bit faster when dealing with large images.
  • Imagick supports a larger number of image formats.
  • Imagick is usually better at producing higher quality images (although sometimes at the expense of file size).
