Motherboard BIOS question?

Basically I have an ASUS M3A model Motherboard, been great for its price for the past year.

Recently there was a BIOS update, this month in fact, the first one i've seen for this model mobo since late last year. It says on it "Supports new CPU's" but the support list on ASUS's web site has not been updated with anything new. So i am a little confused.

M3A BIOS 1206 is the bios, it came out 10 days ago. ( So very new.) I am really psyched about it if it means new CPU support as i have been looking to replace my aging 9750 Phenom x4 with a Phenom II for a bit more life on my PC. I have no idea what new CPU's this BIOS supports because i can't find a proper list. I know a lot of the ASUS mobo's that have been released in the past year and a half have been getting updates to support the new Thuban X6's, i don't think that is the case here, but i could be wrong which would be a nice kind of wrong.

Anyways, if anyone here knows anything about this BIOS's new CPU support, or has better google-fu than me i'd really appreciate the help. If i don't have to get a new motherboard for a while longer it would make me very happy.

    I dug around on their forums but couldn't find anything. You may want to try emailing them directly.
