Pretty simple, do the games that are 'optimised' for nvidia cards perform better on nvidia cards?

i suppose so. especially if they use gameworks. but you need a supported gpu for that.

Yes and no.

 

If a game was "optimized" for Nvidia, it SHOULD be able to access the 100% of resources your Nvidia GPU has. They usually also tend to work worse on AMD cards. But, it really depends on how much time was invested into this optimization, and this changes every time, just look at Forza 7.

 

Anyway don't rely too much on that, first because as said it isn't always guaranteed, and second because companies change supporter from game to game (just look at bethesda)

Not quite, i think Far Cry 4 is one of the example if not the only example. :P

What do you mean by worth it? As in, picking an Nvidia card over an AMD card? That depends entirely if you like those games or not. Only you can answer that.

IIRC some effects and features from Nvidia Gameworks simply won't work on AMD cards.
