Is it right time to buy AM4 motherboards?

I thought AM4 will support but APU and CPU types. But current motherboards do not have any video/HDMI ports. So they will never support APUs. (at least not if you want to use the iGPU)

 

I like the idea of supporting both types. Because I would have option to use an external GPU or not. One day I may want to buy a new motherboard and sell the old one with an APU for example while keeping my external GPU. Maybe I turn an older motherboard into a HTPC with an APU in future (currently I use an APU for HTPC). There are many ways to benefit from this compatibility.

 

What I am wondering is, if this AM4 supporting both types was a pipe dream? or will it ever come? If it will, I would rather wait...
