Perhaps you know something I don't, but as far as I was aware, the GPUs still had to render them, so they can get the alignment correct. That and earlier drivers in particular had performance drops that were quite noticeable when bezel correction was enabled.
Also, do screenshots taken at Surround resolutions turn out the size of the Surround bezel corrected res, without missing bits? I'm sure it used to for me, but that was back with 258.96, so they may have changed their bezel correction routines with the 300 series drivers. If they do, the GPU is rendering everything.

Eh, swings and roundabouts, in my experience. nVidia drivers are better at some things, AMD ones at others. I've had both give me headaches, so I'm not prepared to come down on one side or the other.

Yeah, I agree. But driver teams are usually fairly small, and can't work on everything all at once.
