Windows 7: NVIDIA Design Garage gets less than 5 FPS

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
NVIDIA Design Garage gets less than 5 FPS

I'm trying to use one of the NVIDIA demos, Design Garage, and I'm getting less than 5 FPS. Is this demo just really screwed up or what? Any way to fix it? I have a GTX 460 1GB.

That's what you will get. Raytracing is still in early stages of development, and the best they can render it in realtime at the moment is at 2-5fps.

You only need to leave it running for about an hour for a decent image, so just leave it running while you go and do something else.

I made a thread a few months ago where I've put all my renders, so feel free to add to it Nvidia Design Garage screenshots

Nvidia Design Garage screenshots
I've been having a play with Nvidia's Design Garage and taking a few screenshots. Anyone with a GTX260 card and later can use this, and can be downloaded here with more information on it here. It's interesting how it works and worth a look as you can get some really nice screenshots out of...

Bug or by design?
The min, max, close tootips on titlebars render the old XP tooltip background color instead of the new Win 7 design. Bug or by design?

New design!
Just noticed the design refresh. I like it. Nice idea to use the addressbar and searchbar is no longer confusing :p
