Hello,
I have msi Optix MAG272CRX Monitor
The settings on the screen it self (Not GamingOSD App) show me in the corner
FW010
this is the firmware installed on the monitor
I see some videos on the YouTube how to update monitor firmware from GamingOSD App
but the problem is my App Doesn't has Update Firmware Button.
This is the video

Is there any different way to update the monitor firmware?

It is not support flash firmware function on MAG272CRX that is why it is withour firmware on support sheet on MSI website.

Thank you for your answer
In fact, the reason for my question is whether there is an update or not
I can't activate FreeSync through an app
AMD Adrenaline
While the monitor supports it
I see Enable 'Adaptive Sync Compatible' Instead of 'Radeon FreeSync'.

One day I run my pc then enable Adaptive sync from my screen setting directly and start Fortnite
then when I start playing I feel the something different (better) then I go to AMD Adrenaline App and I see the option was 'Radeon FreeSync'
and this is the first and the last time I see it 😢.
I take a photo for it ,the date was 2021-08-12

I shared this post before Here
because I think the monitor needs to update to fix this, but looks like you can't update this monitor😢.

One day I run my pc then enable Adaptive sync from my screen setting directly and start Fortnite
then when I start playing I feel the game was very smooth and different (better) , then I go to AMD Adrenaline App and I see the option was 'Radeon FreeSync'
and this is the first and the last time I see it 😢.

I take a photo for it ,the date was 2021-08-12 (Windows 11)



After that I tried many times to get the option back again by reinstalling Windows, AMD Adrenaline , GamingOSD and other drivers and sadly nothing changed .
It is the first time I got 176.8 FPS in that day

This list is all AMD freeSync monitor on AMD website.

MAG272CRX is not on this list.
Yes I see it, but then why they put FreeSync supported in the main features, This is confusing.

I see this list before ,more than 1 year ago or maybe 2, and I'm sure my monitor was in the list but now you can't see it.
Then why in msi monitor page they said it is FreeSync?, looks like msi cheating on us

yes, it was there in the first place😔 I'm sure.

Why msi don't let the users download the previous versions of GamingOSD and drivers or any software, this may solve the problem,

I tried to search for old versions of these but I can't find any 😢.

So I asked my contact to look in to this problem and they say it should be working even if not on that list.
Can you try with Different Cables one DisplayPort and HDMI make sure HDMI is 2.0a or better HDMI 2.1 preferred as well as certified, and DisplayPort 1.4a or better like DisplayPort 2.0 and also certified, certified cables cost no more than other uncertified brands and can be picked up for about $10 to 15 dollars per meter.

If I use HDMI it shows VRR ( Variable Refresh Rate )
a few days ago I just bought DP 1.4 cable thinking this may solve the problem, but it still same nothing changed 😔

And can you enable that one
I believe VRR is the same thing just may not be certified as FreeSync

yes, I can enable it
I believe FreeSync is different Adaptive Sync
in that day in fortnite I set 3D Resolution in the settings to the highest (100%) and I get 176.8 FPS !!
but before and after that day I can't even reach 140 FPS even if I set 3D Resolution 80% !!

for more info
This is my post in AMD community

With HDMI that would be correct depending on the cable your using it will limit your FPS depending on other setting like Colour Depth and pixel format
Try setting shown with Adaptive Sync and as you have all ready been informed Free and adaptive are the same thing.
And unless you are using Certified Cables there is no guarantee you will get what the cable is advertised to do no matter the cost.

I just got my HDMI 2.1 cable yesterday
If I use any HDMI cables it is showing enable 'VRR' even with 2.1 cable
and I tried these settings in the pic , but I didn't see any changes.
I'm thinking the only way to solve this by install old drivers ,please if you can help ,and thank you 🌹
