Intel identifies chipset design error, implementing solution - PCSTATS.com Intel identifies chipset design error, implementing solution
Thu, Feb 03 2011 | 3:17PM | Filed under: Chipset| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

As part of ongoing quality assurance, Intel has discovered a design issue in a recently released support chip, the Intel 6 series, codenamed Cougar Point, and has implemented a silicon fix. In some cases, the SATA ports within the chipsets may degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD-drives. The chipset is utilized in PCs with Intel's latest second-generation Intel Core processors, codenamed Sandy Bridge. Intel has stopped shipments of the affected support chip from its factories. Intel has corrected the design issue, and has begun manufacturing a new version of the support chip, which will resolve the issue. The Sandy Bridge microprocessor is unaffected and no other products are affected by this issue.
