"3x at third current" certainly is more efficient than "2x at half current". You get more lumnes (as lumens/current ratio is better at lower currents) and you consume less power (as Vf is lower at lower curents).

Like ortelius said, 3x is more efficient than 2x at same power consumption. But it's the color produced that's the question. I got me some 2T binned XML-s and they have some green tint at lower currents (like 50 or 100 mA) but at 3A or even 3.5A they are white, almost neutral.
