It is true. If read various differences between the different brands of cards you will find that they all may have different max boost clocks for benchmarks but they also all run at different clock speeds for gaming. One that may have a higher boost for bench may in fact have a lower clock for gaming.

How you change this is bios though is not something I am familiar with.

They are the same manufacturer, same clocks, same model even. Not sure why I still have to unlock BIOS and tweak it. Furthermore, won't this void my warranties? This solution seems so ridiculous to get my GPUs running the way they were meant to out of the box.

It should not have an effect on scaling. I was simply pointing out that the bench clocks and game clocks can be different. They should scale the same no matter what as long as the game you are playing is optimized for it.

Whatvit seems like to me is that one of your cards are thermal throttling possibly. Load up valley benchmark and take a look at all of the monitoring items. What are the temps of your GPUs? Also does anything else look odd?

Have you tried to Reset Overclocking software you use or just uninstall it and then reinstalling nVidia Driver?
I'm not exactly sure what you trying to do wink.gif If you havent touched your BIOS previously then there is no need for flashing it unless you trying to boost the performance and No this will not void your warranty as long as you know what you are doing wink.gif

This is as simple as it gets wink.gif SLI is not 100% supported so Tweaking is a must for every single game. From what you've been writing there is absolutely nothing wrong with your cards just poorly configured SLI settings for The Tomb Raider. Read a bunch of people unhappy with SLI support

However if you want better performance you can try flashing BIOS with higher clocks wink.gif .

I know that Tomb Raider isn't fully optimized. That doesn't explain my current issues with BF4. It used to scale super well, now SLI only scales well in the game's menus. Once I leave the menu while in a server, the GPUs drop from 99% usage back to their ~75-80% usage. It's super frustrating as I feel like I'm not getting the performance out of them that I used to.

Try to set performance manually thru nVidia Control Panel. Setting it to Hight Quality will make the card work harder wink.gif
