Default Are Asus 780G boards supporting Phenom II?

I'm somewhat peeved that I have two Asus boards in my house that don't yet have Phenom II support. The first one, in particular, is barely a year old, on the market.

Does anyone have any details on potential PII support for:
1) M3A78-EMH HDMI (apparently this is the 780G AMD chipset that most manufacturers are supporting for PII)... @#!#$@% asus
2) M2A VM... made with 690 chipset, but probably could support PII 95W cpu's

My System Specs


Both of my GigaByte Boards with the 780G Chipset support all the AM3 and AM2+ PII's.

It all depends on the board, and the BIOS Support.
