It doesn't help with performance per se. However, I quit each game or app rather than just go back to dashboard and load the next game/app because of the memory leak problems. I don't know if memory leaks are less after the last few updates (since i started doing this behavior because of the first revision of the OS) so i can't judge whether it's better recently. But the memory leak problems annoyed me when the One first came out.
I noticed it way back when, when I was trying to load Dead Rising 3 but it never finished loading or it would dump me back to the dashboard. It also happened to other games where the game wouldn't load. the only way to fix it was a hard reboot which of course flushed the memory (holding down the power button until the One fully turned off and then turning it back on). I then read that quitting out of the game/app completely solved it and it completely fixed it for me. So I now religiously quit after going back to dash.
maybe it's all been fixed and I'm just doing excessive behavior. But I've never had any problems since with games loading or performance issues so I'm just going to stick to my routine.
