This is just my opinion of course and another detractor/factor for me to stay away from Nvidia. Hopefully ATi does NOT implement a similar system in the future otherwise we'll all be playing Xbox/PS3 style
I don't take survey's and i don't submit info. We pay them good $$$ to develop hardware & software, they should earn it
Of course they will still allow full control, its just for people too lazy or can't be arsed to tinker who will make good use out of this. Also, I think this is going to be an automatic process, where you will be asked if you want to help your fellow gamers by submitting the settings you use. You say that they are getting good money to develop software and hardware, I agree with this, but there is a bewildering amount of different hardware combination that its impossible for them to optimise for each system, and they can only provide a crude recommendations. This is where this system comes in to play.
