Sandy Bridge chipset flaw halts board shipments

Intel has stopped shipments of its 6-series chipsets, because of a SATA design flaw.

The problem only appears to affect the 3Gb/s SATA ports, as explained over at Anandtech: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4143/t...point-sata-bug

I'm glad I read this and the article over at anandtech. I was going to head out later this month to upgrade. I will now wait for a birthday upgrade in April .

I bought a 2600k with a fatal1ty P67 board from overclockers.co.uk. Gave them a call today to find out if there was a recall and they have said that they arnt recalling the boards unless the companies notify them too.

Like Greenie states its only affecting the 3Gb sata ports, so im really not to bothered but will happily replace it with a fixed board

At first I was a bit worried about it, but after reading around it seems it only affects sustained use of SATA 3gb/s ports. As i use the Sata 6 ports for my 2 HDDs and my 'only used for windows installation' CD drive on the 3gb/s I think I will live.

Saying that if the RMA process looks to be quick once the dust settles I may swap it out (get the latest rev of the UD4 at least)

Thanks - I've put in a link to the Anandtech article as well now.

The real question is - did Intel fire the guy who decided to use that transistor at that spot ?

I was actually going to buy a sandy bridge upgrade today. Good job bit-tech is my homepage. Oh well, I may have enough for a full system overhaul by then.

oh bollards!! Already had issues with the P67 chipset and sent a MB back to a reseller (who are trying to wriggle out of it). I usually wait to upgrade but i jumped on board the early adopter intercity to hell this time

Well that explains why my order from Scan hasn't arrived today. Looks like I got lucky and ordered it just late enough for them to hold it back till this situation is sorted.

Which is why i'll be waiting for other people to beta test the new Bulldozer CPU's for 3mths after it launches in Q2 this year....

Phew, i actually had a motherboard, cpu and RAM in a basket ready to puchase a couple of times but managed to resist the temptation to see how the pricing panned out in the next few months.

Not great news for Intel, but at least it has been spotted early.

the question should be, did Intel fire the manager who made design decision to re-use that cluster of transistors from older Intel chipsets.

the poor engineer was probably just doing what he's been told. i would blame poorly documented cell library rather than the engineer, because in IC design, all you are seeing are blocks, not how the transistor is made.


(but then, im just a poor engineer doing what i've been told. so from the bottom looking up, i find holding a single workhorse engineer responsible is wrong)
