I have no qualms with Emacs memory usage (and a quick "top" shows you are indeed right about comparable memory usage.)

I switched from Emacs to Vim around 2000, at that time I recall that Emacs tended to be sluggish in syntax highlighting, especially on larger files. Perhaps faster CPU or performance improvements in Emacs have made the issue moot by now.
