    Check with this screenie of your BIOS . Use Ubu Development tool from Win-raid.
    MSI BIOS 10A at their support site.

    New BIOS uploaded by MSI to Microsoft 10D. The firmware updating procedure is similar to Surface laptops.(UWD driver framework)

    Looks like it is a placebo effect after all since you got only new IRST Roms.
    Hope this helps Mr. Phoenix.

    Maybe not , I tried this with my GP73-8RE (120mhz) and I also noted that the text looks a little better on the Desktop Icons but I thought that came from the latest Intel GFX Drivers to be honest that I also installed. The Firmware gets stored in the Windows Directory in the Firmware Folder BTW.

    It does not update the EC Firmware though , that I had to do myself as it was several version behind and I noted in the Bios Notes it mentioned the latest EC version too, so I assumed it was needed for compatibility.

    BIOS and EC are two separate chips therefore they needed to be updated individually, one at a time.

    About time you re-run all Benchmarks. Especially the one for the processor. But why in Hell looking for trouble like this?:eek:

    Please post the new bench results in your MSI review thread:D

    I currently have the E17A3IMS.109 2018/03/14
    MSI only has E17A3IMS.10A 2018/04/23 on their site, WU installed E17A3IMS.10D 2018/05/14
    How did WU manage to send you a newer BIOS (From the Device Manager update) than MSI has officially listed?
    Any problems? I need to update mine.
    Also ...
    When updating the bios, did you unzip the folder prior to placing it in the root of C?

    How did Microsoft a newer BIOS than what MSI is offering? Probably MSI sent it to them but didn't publish it on the site like usual, pure BS from their drivers team.

    anyway, when updating the BIOS through the device manager, you don't need to do a thing, there's nothing for you to download or unzip, you simply update and reboot then it starts the update process automatically before it boots up to Windows, it might reset your BIOS to default as well.

    Looks like you haven't read MSFT's new developer T&C's, driver framwework manual and what not. Now everything will be mandatory to use Win App store so that they pass MS's very strict test cases and customer gets 100% working products.
    Bluetooth drivers will be exclusively get upstream releases from Win update catalog.

    Updated mine, I got kinda nervous after the 4th reboot ....
    I don't ever remember a 3rd or 4th doing it from the BIOS, just the 1 reboot.
    Maybe this is why I'm having problems with my GT75, I just went through a boot loop with a MS update today as well.
    I guess we will see in the coming days how well behaved this all is.
