Is AMD graphics cards support - DP 1.2A or only DP 1.2 ?
Is there an update on the graphics card BIOS ?

AMD FreeSync / Adaptive Sync Benefits

(59:15) Huddy discussed the differences, as he sees it, between NVIDIA's G-Sync technology and the AMD option called FreeSync but now officially called Adaptive Sync as part of the DisplayPort 1.2a standard. Beside the obvious difference of added hardware and licensing costs, Adaptive Sync is apparently going to be easier to implement as the maximum and minimum frequencies are actually negotiated by the display and the graphics card when the monitor is plugged in. G-Sync requires a white list in the NVIDIA driver to work today and as long as NVIDIA keeps that list updated, the impact on gamers buying panels should be minimal. But with DP 1.2a and properly implemented Adaptive Sync monitors, once a driver supports the negotiation it doesn't require knowledge about the specific model beforehand.

All the new AMD cards on the R7 and R9 all support Display port 1.2 and HDMI 1.4a.
The only question is the fact does your monitor you have support it. Most monitor support HDMI 1.4a as a standard I/O, but not that many have display port (unless you pay some money for more pricier monitors).

And the bios has nothing to do with the gfx card. Its just the AMD driver and the card itself.
