    Hello @JOSEPH_NOHS1

    Resizable BAR (ReBAR) is a new feature recently released for the latest CPU and GPUs. However, since it is such a new feature, many developers have yet to enable the use of ReBAR in games. I've seen that many games offer very few improvements and some even see detriments to performance when using this feature. Hopefully, as more developers start to take advantage of the new technology we'll see more improvements, though I would hold off on implementing the feature for the time being.

    Here's a video with some benchmarks and comparisons.

    And another with a more detailed variety of benchmarks

    I must apologize here, but this motherboard is a System Integrator board. Currently, there is no new BIOS update from MSI for this board. We'd be able to send the current BIOS that is used in this system however since it would not be different from the current BIOS, we would not advise reflashing your system unless there is a known issue. There is always a risk when flashing your BIOS that may cause the system to be bricked.

    Please let me know if you're still interested in us sending the BIOS to you.
