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

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.
