High CPU Usage

I tried both the 32 and 64bit version on my iMac running 10.7.3, the cpu usage is 3x higher compared to the older version.
Looking a the comments on Macupdate.com, this problem has been consistent with all the Mac users. I wonder if the Linux and Windows users are having the same issue.

I am getting much more responsiveness from this than I have from the previous version. In the previous version it would take almost 30 seconds to load a movie. Now it is instant.

On the other hand *I* get a huge delay between the volume UI and volume change !

Other than that, I quite like this version.
