Isn't this a ray tracing demo and modern graphic cards just aren't ready for ray tracing? This kind of performance may be normal and you may need to run the demo at a low resolution in a window or something to get somewhat ok performance out of it.

There's a bug with current driver set that makes it not work. Also no this isn't the ray tracing demo.

I really would classify a path tracing as a ray tracing. ;)
Yes, design carage is full ray tracer with indirect components which is why it takes quite a long time to get the image to look good.
