sinnedone IF anyone is still using this monitor I have noticed something that might help with Freesync or flashing issues. In some of the latest drivers AMD added settings that help with sub-par monitors.

Go to "Display" tab and select "Specs" on the far right of the Pixio PX277 section.
Next click on the "Override" tab and you will find yourself with two options with selectable sliders. (Adjust Voltage Swing, and Adjust PreEmphesis.)
They have adjustable parameters of 0/1/2.

According to this post https://community.amd.com/thread/212160 by amdmatt these options are useful for:

These options can potentially help a user overcome intermittent flashing or black screen issues that sometimes occur with monitors due to a bug or firmware issue.



This Model from Pixio definitely sounds like bad firmware. Any way I played with several combinations and the the Freesync range has improved slightly and a couple of issues I was having stopped happening. Before I played with these settings the best my monitor could do is a Freesync range of 56-144. Even then some games didn't like Freesync to be "ON" without flickering. (One of the Battlefield games comes to mind, 1 maybe)

After I played with the settings in every combination there could be, I now have a Freesync range of 52-144 and titles that behaved strangely when freesync was on, now don't have a problem.


I figured if anyone was still using these monitors this might help you out.

Dopamin3 I contacted Pixio about the line down the middle of the screen and they offered to RMA it (not knowing I'm outside of the 1 year warranty lol). I said I don't want to RMA but I'd try different firmware. They sent me a link to the V6 firmware and said it was the most stable. Can anybody confirm?

Here is a Google Drive link with the V6 firmware: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1-G..._e3VX38cAp_uMD

I'll add more firmware if people can get it to me.

Put them in Google Drive and share them as a link so anyone with the link can view. Then put the link in this thread. You could do other cloud services like Dropbox, Mega, etc...

That would be awesome!

Set the v-rate from 55-144 (or 55-143, might differ for you).

Add a 2560x1440 144hz resolution, using the following timings:


That's the best I got. I highly suggest you send the monitor back and wait for Nixeus' 1440p 144hz IPS panel. It will have a CERTIFIED freesync range of 30-144 I believe. Pixio's FreeSync is not certified and they are using the AMD and FreeSync brand logos without permission as they don't represent AMD's FreeSync.

ball2hi So not only is the overdrive feature removed in newer firmware versions, a feature advertised on the monitor. Alongside its really bad pixel response time, it is not even AMD FreeSync certified.

They are illegally(?) using the AMD and FreeSync brand on their monitor that has never been sent to AMD for testing and certification. It is actually DP Adaptive Sync.
