....ummm..... your lowering the graphics quality for one and not the other... And its not like this is a sponsored nvidia game. I don't think you understand why there was a framerate issue on the AMD cards and not the Nvidia... AMD cards have 1/2 the tessalation capability than nvidia cards have. Your fps goes down because its having to do a bunch of calculations and it's hitting a bottleneck (more so) on the AMD cards. So this config allows you to lower the tesseleation. So, if your cutting the tesselation in half on the AMD, then yeah you will break even. Im sure AMD does better in some other areas, so it would be understandable if they get a couple more fps then nvidia. But what your saying is kinda like saying... On Medium Settings AMD gets higher FPS than Nvidia does on High.
The real question is.... do people really notice the tessellation difference? Do people notice the shader differences between low and ultra.... do people see the difference between 4xAA vs 8xAA? Some people just dont see it, or dont even know what to look for. I pulled up some video in youtube today and when the video was playing, i had to check to see if it was 1080 or 720p. Some people can tell the difference between FLAC vs 128Mbps MP3. All in all, it comes down to the value vs cost. Its kinda funny, i prefer games to play in windowed mode (full screen) because i like to alt tab without minimizing the game and stuff, but when i played GTA5 like that... it was a slideshow while driving. I flipped it to full screen and it worked great. Costed a little, but HUGE value in the end. (I now play games fullscreen .... at least until i get a new Graphics Card)
