From The Verge:

In April, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told us that the days of painstakingly tweaking PC game settings to get a decent gaming experience could soon be over. With GeForce Experience, he said, the company would use supercomputers to figure out the optimal settings for each game and each hardware configuration, by tailoring settings to your computer. Today, the tool enters closed beta, supporting around 30 games to start. We got to try it out for ourselves this week, and sat down with some Nvidia software engineers to see how it works.

First of all, you should probably know that Nvidia isn't actually scanning your laptop or desktop with a cloud-based supercomputer and magically calculating the results. It's mostly human labor, actually, and it starts with human Nvidia game testers playing through the hottest new games to figure out just how difficult they can be to run and just what kind of framerate is acceptable. It's a human committee of graphics experts that decides just how important each and every game setting (including jargon-filled terms like Screen Space Ambient Occlusion) will be when it comes to the quality of the final moving images.
