UPDATE 12PM CT: Numerous people have called and e-mailed Legit Reviews about this story. It appears that the USB 3.0 issue is isolated to a USB controller issue on the client side. Intel also sent us an e-mail today letting us know that there is no delay with the Haswell platform launch. It looks like the C1 chipsets will be launched as planned in June 2013 and then the board makers will transition to the C2 chipsets sometime after July 2013.
Sorry, but I don't buy that. If it was just with a cheap USB controller, then Intel wouldn't have to fix their CPU with a C2 stepping, the USB controller would be fixed instead.
So it looks like the early adopters of Haswell will be getting a buggy CPU based on the C1 chip and if you don't want the bug, you will have to wait til later (and depending on how much stock there is of the C1 chips, you could be playing Russian Roulette as to your stepping version for some time to come). Not the best move in my mind. You could seriously tick off customers that way if they get the C1 version and don't know about the bug.
This is going to be as ugly as the old Pentium FDIV bug from '94.Edited by 47 Knucklehead - 4/5/13 at 1:09pm
