The Gentoo site makes some "interesting" claims and, if they're right, great! Otherwise, I'll probably just go back to Fedora for now, and leave looking under the hood (probably) till after I've graduated from medical school. ;-)
I wouldn't move to Gentoo for the performance benefits. You aren't likely to
see more than perhaps 5%; most processes are I/O bound, rather than CPU bound.
