Well imo it was a gimmick. It is now replaced with quad channel in socket 2011, again also a gimmick, imo. Socket 2011 boards have their advantages, but quad channel memory architecture is not one of them. Current z68 and z77 socket 1155 based dual channel setups out perform triple or quad channel.
In theory triple channel and quad channel support more memory, that's probably the biggest benefit of those techs. Also when triple channel came out with socket 1366, it may have been faster than the sister socket 1156 dual channel setup at that time.

Triple or Quad channel memory should outperform dual channel just based on bandwidth. The problem with these triple channel modules is that they suffer from high latency and why some dual channel ram outperformed them.
