This is what I love to call the magic of illusion. Or propaganda or what ever bias we run into day to day. You hit the nail on the head.
I would give the info I saw on Tom's hardware about gigabytes information as about as accurate as you'll find. They are not giving any performance data, or have anything to gain or loose.
Just numbers that have to do with their products compatibility. No more, no less. I can't see why this should cause any problems other than problems people create for themselves of for the same of making noise... If true it's deplorable.
The release date is close and motherboard mfg's have been in closer contact with AMD and have had this kind of information for a while now. To design the FX compatible motherboard/chipset so if it was released by Gigabyte or if it was ASUS or MSI. there is absolutely no reason to doubt the information.
Tom's hardware usually is pretty good about confirmation before printing but as I don't work there I can only go by experience with their data which is usually fairly accurate in this kind of stuff.
