How well does Gforce Experiences optimization for games work?

It told me to run tomb raider on ultra but my fps is constantly dipping in most areas

If you read this signature, then that meant that I had control of what you read for 5 SECONDS!!

Nothing beats common sense in choosing graphics settings.

So far I've noticed it consistently picks the worst possible options. And it pesters you to update.

I uninstalled it about 2 days after it got installed.

Mine always wants to sacrifice every other setting in order to have more AA than necessary... i just use the trial and error method (which I strangely kinda enjoy....) and just use it to check for driver updates and install them easily

The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.

Yeah, I'd rather have every thing else maxed and skip the AA which isn't really needed at 1080P or higher (at least not to me)

I'd say 80% of the time it's pretty good, from my own experience with it.

Eh, it's hit or miss. Just installed it with my 780, and it's putting some games on lower settings than I can run in order to crank up AA, and I notice that it actually didn't change any of the actual game settings when I go to start the game, so I don't even know if it works at all.

I generally know what settings do, so I just change them myself. I usually max the game and see how it runs, if I see I'm always under 60 fps I just reduce demanding settings that are barely noticeable, like tessellation / ssao.
I can't play without AA anymore, but fxaa is really common nowadays and takes mostly no resources.

It's bad for some games.

The ultra shadows and TressFX are the biggest performance hit on Tomb Raider. Decide which one you like more and pick one, or just turn them both off for a huge performance increase.

I personally liked the high shadows better than the ultra shadows.
