Three piece cranks

What is the advange of three piece cranks. Is it weight? The whole converter unit along with the crank itself seems heavier than the one piece crank. Is it strength? It's hard to believe that a solid chunk of steel isn't as strong as alloy and it doesn't have a problem with stripped tapers or splines. The pros ride three piece cranks, so what am I missing?
