I am now in the process of switching.

I have recently upgraded my camera and Aperture can't cope with 24 megapixel images any more I found the Lightroom is significantly faster in everything, requires less memory and has much more features.

My strategy is to keep old pictures in Aperture library and start importing new images to Lighroom catalog. I use referenced images in both apps, so I can access the same masters when I need them. I leave Aperture installed.

Aperture can certainly cope with 24MP images. I run through hundreds or thousands of 21MP RAW files per job on a 2012 13" Macbook Pro, and Aperture has absolutely no trouble keeping up. My biz partner finds LR no faster with his 36MP D800E RAW files.

If you're finding LR faster, it may be that you're comparing a new small LR catalog to a much larger and older Aperture library, or that some other factor is impacting your Aperture performance, or you're comparing to Aperture 2, not 3.
