I know it in detail, because I'm flying the  B757/767.
It's a matter of weight,thrustsetting, speed,temperature,altitude and so
When the aircraft's are almost empty and you select a high thrustsetting
they can easily catch up with a 20 year old fighter.
For the first 5000 feet they both have climrates over 6000fpm.
The B767 has a little better weight-thrust ratio the the B757.(empty)
The Concorde has app. 4000-5000fpm climerate during the initial climeout.
