Hopefully we can get some independent verification of those numbers and which games and configs they apply to. 60 Frames/sec is the base standard for smooth gameplay, 3-5% improvement amounts to 1.8-3 FPS.. It isn't even worth mentioning surely.

The 30% improved games - different story. I hope the list is revealed and relevant configs tested and verified by third parties. Though it wouldn't be unusual for such dramatic improvements to be shown in crossfire setups - which just like SLI setups, have been hit and miss with various titles.
