The problem is that your definition of "good for consumers" in this case is "give their work away for free."
Well duh, of course it's good for us if we don't have to pay Nvidia for their IP. But that's not how things work, and it's not reasonable to expect otherwise.
Or they could also compete on terms of raw performance instead of trying to make a walled garden. It's one thing to have features on the card, it's another to get proprietary hardware installed in what should be generic peripherals.
They could even make and sell the G-Sync adapters (they do) to recover costs. Oh well, at least PhysX and 3D are super prolific.
