Low PPD from 4x 1080tis (~400k each) - help please!

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Have you configured a passkey? Have you completed 10 WUs since it was configured?

Please post the FAH log per the instructions below. Include the first few pages plus segments showing the WUs being processed and enough of the performance reports so we can see what's going on.
