These also don't match. Check your device ID
10DE = NVIDIA
1B80 = GTX 1080
3842 = EVGA
6685 = stock keeping unit (SKU), this number must match
Theoretically you can override that, but i suggest to overclock with EVGA Precision.
We have already enough users who bricked their GPU by wrong flashing :rolleyes:

Did you try to dump BIOS with an older GPU-Z version?

I have dual bios... is not safe flash?
Not really. So, listen... this GPU will boost way past those clocks anyway, without you having to do anything. My card has same stock clock, but in game it runs at 1923 MHz. Flashing BIOS not required for this generation of cards to get the most out of them, really.

From what I've read. Boost 3.0 only up a certain % of the stock clock speed. Sorry for my english.
I must depend on the specific model of card, since I have cards that have default clocks that run @ the same speeds yours now does. That's why I psoted what I did earlier. I tend to choose MSI or EVGA cards these days though, so maybe that app-lies for the EVGA ones now, but it definitely does not for my MSI cards.

For example, I have both "GAMING" and "GAMING-X" 1080's. they run at the exact same clocks when used alone.

When in SLI together, they run a much lower speed, @ 1860 MHz, like yours was. But remove a card, and they boost up over 1900 without any problem. When I was running 1070's, it was the same way, too.

Anyway, your posts have shown it can work different with different cards, so thanks very much for showing that! ;)

This should be working now with GPU-Z 2.7.0

I have a theory why this is happening, should have a fix for you to test later today
