MSI will also be releasing a host of BIOS versions to include compatibility with the next-gen AMD APUs for the 300- and 400- series motherboards.  The expected release date is in May of this year.

There isn’t really much more to say but, Thank You MSI for owning up and letting all of your customers know that your human too.  Errors in information happen.  It is nice to see a company step up and acknowledge the release of incorrect information.
