i didn't give you the link to read it (it's a nice read though), but for the screens. the details you don't see are way obvious. the demos run a lot better because they are made to run on certain cards and because they are optimized for that range of cards. they are supposed to run with a decent framerate, they're not supposed to be used as benchmarks. 5 fps difference in a demo's case is not that much, but in a benchmark's case, it may be the exact difference between playable and unplayable.
