Unless you work in one of their back rooms, you have no idea.
Do you know anything of presumption of innocence? When there's no proofs of guilty the natural reaction is to presume innocence. That's what a honest non biased person thinks. And that's what any legal system is based on.
You have as much proof of that happening as I do of it not happening. have you any proof except that it runs better on one than the other? So you have the reason and I don't, because? Enlighten me.
I know Nvidia is playing fair, because that's what the developers say. When docens of Developers say that Nvidia is approaching them to help them develop, optimize and test their games, my natural reaction is to believe them, because I don't presume that all the people lie. I don't presume that all of them take money underhand. But most importantly I know that at least one out of the 100 that form a game development team, out of the 100 developers that have developed under TWIMTBP, one at least, would have said something already if it was happening something shaddy.
I've been part of an small developer that did small java games, and I know how much it costs to optimize and make even a simple game bug free, so it doesn't surprise me a bit that games that have been optimized on one card runs better than in the one that hasn't*. That's the first thing that make people jump about TWIMTBP, so being that's what they think and have been claiming bad behavior out of that, it doesn't surprice me.
*It also happened that one game run flawlessly on one cellphone and crashed on others, while both should be able to run the same java code.
