    Not sure how this is supposedly contradictory. Consumer mobo makers are concerned with their own products/time to market timeframe...OEM board manufacture is more the province of companies like Hon Hai (Foxconn), Pegatron and Tyan building to Dell/HP/Acer's/etc.. specification.
    I thought it was pretty well established that OEM's get first refusal on virtually any new tech by dint of huge orders and marketing on the IHV's behalf, so it was always a safe bet that OEM's get to market before DIY'ers, and if AMD need anything it's OEM contracts if they hope to make any kind of inroads into Intel's present market domination.
    Anyhow...this all seems confirmed from Tom's Hardware, who have put the A10/A8/A6 through it's paces -with a follow up in the works ( vs i3 2100 by the sounds of it) if the conclusion is anything to go by.
