    I think you'll need around 4.8 GHz 7900X to match 6950X at 4.2 GHz in games. In work-related things the 7900X is faster.

    But let's say 4.8 GHz? My chip (non-delidded) does 4.6 at 1.26 V and 4.7 is around 1.32 V so the chip is poop. I can barely run old Prime95 at 4.5 GHz on all cores...lol. Temps rocketing to around 92c on hottest cores with custom water cooling...720mm rad space, D5 pump and EK Supremacy EVO.

    One GOOD thing I can only see with my i9-7900X setup is, that with a SINGLE graphics card, games run very smoothly even if the performance is not so good...might be a placebo effect though when comparing to my 6950X setup.

    In case I can't get my 7900X sold locally I might end up trying the tuning plan, last time my 5960X was the worst chip I've seen on any forums and I ended up getting an average chip (still much better) from Intel.

    I too have 7820x 1080ti sli scaling problems

    For those that have been playing 4k for the past 3 years SLI is the only way to go. I just got used to playing 4k at ultra settings thanks to 1080ti sli. However my SLI performance on my Strix x299 is awful. Even with my 4.8GHz cpu.

    Is everyone sure this is software related?

    I'd really like to know how you did that?! How exactly does it work? Because I usually end up losing the silicon lottery and get ass chips every time.

    Intel sells a performance tuning plan for a small fee in case the chip dies from overclocking or anything else, not just for exchanging a poor performing chip that still meets Intel specs.
    You can purchase pre binned delidded chips from SiliconLottery.com , a couple hundred over retail but in my mind money well spent

    It just is not looking all that good of an upgrade from X99 at the moment

    Intel Performance Tuning Protection Plan
    FAQ

    "Allows a single replacement for your qualified processor, in addition to your standard 3 year warranty."
    "The Performance Tuning Protection Plan is an additional plan that a customer can purchase to cover processor failures caused by operating the eligible processor outside of Intel’s published specifications."

    You "Purchase a Plan" for your processor and you register your processor.
    Cost ranges from $10 for an old Pentium G3258 to $79 for the latest i9-7900X.

    The Plan is a one-shot deal for only one processor. You can't purchase multiple Plans for a single processor. You can't use (or "save") the Plan with a different processor of the same model. The Plan can't be transferred to another processor. The Plan isn't valid on replacement processors.

    You always have (3-year) Intel warranty vs defects in workmanship, flawed parts, etc, with or without the Plan.
    And of course if you wreck the processor with a botched install or botched overclock then you're outta luck and Intel categorically won't replace it.

    But the Plan allows you to swap your processor once - you send it to Intel, they send you a replacement - usually for no reason other than unhappiness over your silicon lottery ticket.
    You obviously wouldn't swap an epic part, you may or may not want to swap an average part, you haven't got much to lose by swapping a lemon part. Intel is trying to force people to somehow buy the Plan before any overclocking can be attempted on a new processor - but they haven't locked it in just yet, you can still not waste any money on the Plan (because you're satisfied with your part) and only purchase the Plan with intent to use it (because your part overclocks are disappointing.

    I've used the Plan before, swapping an average CPU for another average CPU, yay. Other people have reported awful, average, and awesome results with the Plan. Many have speculated about exactly what Intel does with all the perfectly functional (if unspectacular overclocking) processors the Plan harvests.

    Still very poor SLI performance.

    Korth if you find an answer please write it here. This is driving me crazy.

    Are we ever going to get an answer to this problem? Called tech support and nothing after an hour and change.

    I can see similar issues reported here: https://forums.geforce.com/default/t...ling-and-bugs/

    I opened a ticket to NVIDIA and they are investigating. But I don't know if this is something NVIDIA needs to fix or is there something to fix in the UEFI/BIOS too.

    OK guys,

    I think I figured out the issue or at least made some progress.

    - Rolled back to old driver 382.33, newer ones show abysmal SLI scaling in some games
    - Fine-tuned power settings in UEFI, it seems there is an underlying issue in the UEFI or hardware issue


    Scaling before settings/driver change:




    Scaling after settings/driver 382.33:




    Please note even with driver 382.33 I didn't see any difference before setting the following settings:







    ...most importantly I disabled:

    Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology
    Autonomous Core C-State
    Intel Speed Shift Technology


    And set these settings:
    Long Duraction Package Power Limit 4095
    Package Power Time Window 127
    Short Duration Package Power Limit 4095

    I don't know if these settings will work for someone else, but it seemed to do the trick for me. Maybe someone could report this to HQ to check? I don't know if all the settings are even relevant, because I am still testing...

    I went back to my X99 rig and tried two different drivers and SLI is scaling perfectly.

    I tried upgrading the driver again on X299 to newest beta driver and the problems arose again. Only old drivers and disabling Intel Speed Shift seems to help.

    Nobody from Asus reads this forum? I have seen other users on NVIDIA forums with the same issue on X299 platform, not all have been on Asus boards.

    I hate being the beta tester here.
