Re: nVidia techdemo's running slow on my 6800 !?
20fps for the demo should be fine. Its smooth enough to not be terribly noticable, and it shows off the power of the card. This is the norm for everyone with a 6800 series card.
T-1000's problem is that it runs at 1-2 FPS, which is radically different from running at 20FPS. I had this same problem, and the fix detailed in this very forum (although I can't find the post now) was to turn multi-hardware display accelaration in the OpenGL menu to "single display mode".
If this is grayed out and not available in your current driver T-1000, then I suggest trying a different driver in the 61.xx series or 65.xx betas.
