Panasonic firmware update adds support for VRR & HFR at 4K resolution

Panasonic has maintained its promise it made to gamers earlier this year by releasing a firmware update to support 4K2K resolution for both Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and High Frame Rate (HFR).

The firmware update also supports Dolby Vision VRR up to 60Hz.

It also adds a new ‘4k120Hz Bypass Mode’ option in the picture settings menu. When this is activated, it enables 4K2K VRR by passing various picture processing, which is like Panasonic’s Pure Direct Mode.

The new firmware update is available on all 2021 models which support HDMI 2.1.
