Sylenth1. Just great CPU <-> sound quality ratio.

May not be the biggest CPU slayer of them all anymore, but, not exactly what i'd call "low on CPU".

Sunrizer (but not happy with the developer about support)
Dune 2 (can get also high on cpu if you go wild)
Otherwise everything within Logic Pro

+1 on Logic Pro's synths. I still use the shit out of ES2 and sculpture.

Third party for me would be Ultra Analog and Filterscape VA

Indeed. Just yesterday i layered a "press one key" 30 arp, 40 synth, 50 FX multi patch and it is still below 30% cpu usage (al cores). Not sure if i could create such a "massive and complex" patch with less cpu with another tool.

Dune (original, not 2) has a good quality/CPU ratio. It's a payware synth but also has a free version (minus the effects section).

Korg M1 is another favorite low CPU synth/rompler.

synthmaster, sylenth1.
Gforce synths (espcially imposcar) have very nice sound/cpu-hit ratio.
