Hey guys.

I just installed the 169.04 Beta drivers on my BFG 8800GT OC and fired up the Demos...

Adrianne Demo runs fine so far.... Framerate is a little low tho.
Froggy Demo is a pain... FPS like 7-9 ... Untestable if you ask me.
Smoke Demo runs fine ... When switching to water sim the Framerate is dropping a little bit.
Human Head Demo is @ 10 FPS maximum... untestable. Sure looks great.

Is it normal that the Demos run like crap or is it the drivers?
The GT should be handle to play that Demos on 1280x1024 1.5 Multisample IMO... or 0 Multisample.

any suggestions?

What are these demos of which you speak.

I just use 3DMark 06 and game demos.

The official 8800 GTS / GTX / Ultra Demos from nVidia... Find them on the nvidia homepage...

Possible the demos are made for 640mb+ cards, which the GTS debuted with, and the GTX has even more..
Might be too much for the 512mb on the GT.

On 3DMark 06 I get over 11k points... but the Demos do run sloppy...

Agreed with jolle, because it clearly says somewhere along the lines of "8800GTS and up," unless they changed it?

Well they made the demos, or prolly atleast started on them, somewhere before the 8800 series launch, which consisted of the 640mb GTS and the GTX.
So they were prolly targeting that memory footprint for textures and stuff.
So they must be for 8800GTS (640mb) and up.

And any Ultra demo they released after that would be targeting the Ultra and its 768mb (or whatever it is).
I remember trying the demo with that face on a 320mb GTS, must have been like 1 fps or something, if even that.
