despite being coded incredibly well, that is probably about the best your rig will do

You have our sympathies. Umm, does the demo have the video stress test? Maybe you could run that to see what kinda fps you should really be getting.
And outside of a building there are a lot more 3d objects to render, so thats why your fps is so low

I guess all you can really do (aside from upgrading ) is make sure you hav nothing running in the background
