I think the windows driver has a huge game Database with per game 
optimizations. I think I saw it in their control applet, you can even change 
the settings. (I don't have a access to a Windows nvidia machine atm).

Last I knew the Linux driver allows similar tuning. And if someone wants to he 
can write a specialized wine patch and put a per game hack collection 
somewhere. I personally don't think theres anything wrong if nvidia provides 
me with fine-tuned per game settings. Honestly I wouldn't put hundreds of 
hacks into my own code, but if nvidia thinks they can manage that, ok with 
me :-)
