Intel

J. Dzhugashvili writes “Early adopters of Intel’s new Sandy Bridge processors, beware. Intel has discovered a flaw in the 6-series chipsets that accompany the new processors. The flaw causes Serial ATA performance to “degrade over time” in “some cases.” Although Intel claims “relatively few” customers are affected, it has stopped shipments of these chipsets and started making a revised version of the silicon, which won’t be ready until late February. Intel expects to lose $300 million in revenue because of the problem, and it’s bracing for repair and replacement costs of $700 million.”
