I haven't checked, but if the new chip is pin compatible and software compatible, there would be very little reason for STD not to use it in the production of new A9s. It may not offer a big speed increase, but I'm sure enough existing A9 owners would be willing to upgrade to make it worth while offering new processor cards, particularly if it was combined with a memory increase.

However, if its not pin compatible and requires a board redesign, it wouldn't be worth it for a small clock increase unless a big client demanded it. Otherwise its then in the same territory as the Iyonix where Castle have stated its not worh producing an upgrade until they can offer a system performance increase of 2x to 3x over the existing hardware.
