    The GPUs regulate themselves and I don't think the fan profiles are adjusted so the prema bios should not be causing this difference.

    Can you give an example? Are both cards downclocking? Do both of them run at different clockspeeds? Have you used the modified vBIOS to keep them at 1127MHz and disable boost?

    I use adaptive power in my games and it's not affecting my fps as such. The gpus maintain 60 fps but the clocks on each gpu don't match most of the time so I can see variances between them <100Mhz most of the time. I have seen gpu0 with 1500Mhz on memory clocks while gpu1 sits at 2500Mhz or gpu0 at 838Mhz core while gpu1 is at 936Mhz.

    Yes

    Your cards are not hitting their power limits then. If you don't hit a power limit for system draw, the card will downclock because it doesn't need to be clocked up. This is entirely normal and as you say, does not affect your FPS. If you force power management to "prefer maximum performance" on a game they should sit at 1038 (or 1127 boost if needed) core and 5000 memory 24/7 while using that program.

    For sli I would stick with maximum performance to keep frame times as smooth as possible.

    Hello,

    This is an extension of an earlier question. Monitor I had kept crashing system so returned it. Hopefully a straightforward pair of questions:

    1: Can the thunderbolt port in this laptop drive a 1440p, 144hz screen?
    2. Is the 980m SLI config in this laptop gsync compatible.

    Thanks.

    Guys, I have a question.

    Do game run flawlessly on SLi 880m's at 120Hz?

    Or are there still needs for some driver updates to fully function at 120Hz?
