for intel processors, if you oveclock by 15%, there's a 15% gain in minimum performance.

is this the same for graphics cards, or is it different? also, are amd and nvidia cards the same for overclocking gains?

Same concept, although having a separate core and memory clock muddies things up a bit.
Intel Core i7 3820 | EVGA X79 SLI K2 | MSI 7950 Twin Frozr III | Samsung / 840 120GB / 8GB RAM | 1TB WD Caviar Blue | Corsair / 550D / H70 | Silencer MKIII 600W

so would it be a bit under or a bit over or just not exactly linear unless memory and core are both overclocked by the same amount?

Well the thing is certain games and situations may require memory bandwidth more than others and some that have no need for extra bandwidth may see no gains at all from higher memory clocks so it's going to vary.
i7 3930k @ 4.5Ghz | H220 | asrock x79 extreme 9 | 16GB 1600mhz ram | SLI GTX 780 | Samsung 830 256GB SSD | 8TB HDDs | EVGA Supernova 1300 G2 | Fractal design R4
