How come MSI has a whole lot less of issues then Asus does, so does Gigabyte for that matter.
If it was across the board AMDs fault ALL mobo manufacturers would have the same issues. We were told from the get go that the major BIOS update would be in May, Asus can't do anything till then but they could have polished their BIOS a bit more before release. They chose to devote the majority of resources towards z270 and thats understandable.
There is no one side to blame more then the other blame game, its equal.
Some of the blame does lie with us as a vendor, but I can categorically tell you we did not prioritize one platform over the next for resources. The timeframes we were giiven to work in were a lot tighter than usual - and that can't be known unless you're on this side of the fence. In an ideal world, you wouldn't sell until something is truly ready, but, the world is never ideal. At the same time, the consumer isn't forced to pay for something at launch. No matter AMD or Intel, if you want a smooth ride, don't be an early adopter.
