Warning: Sandy Bridge Hardware Level DRM, Killswitch, & H67 P67 Recalls! - Page 44  

post #431 of 484
All I can say from reading this is SMD, Intel. It's getting bad enough PC software releases getting f***ed over thanks to DRM (according to the usage policies/licenses of which, you'd think you're paying full price for renting the software), now they've reached a new level of stupidity by implementing hardware-level DRM to protect a distribution system which hasn't even been released yet (which I doubt will ever be used by even 10% of people who bought the Sandy Bridge processors, let alone the general public/Average Joes with the run-of-the-mill dual core rigs) and introducing protection systems that will in fact kill your CPUs? I feel sorry for the IT admins that suggested upgrading their systems to these pieces of crap. Your CPUs are now anything BUT intelligent, Intel. And you've truly shot yourselves in the backside this time, because the first thing the pirates are gonna do is circumvent your sh**ty chips (no debate, sooner or later, it'll happen), run one massive DOS attack on everyone else with one of them, then release cracks/hacked BIOSes to avoid getting a dead computer (which ironically, will be just as likely to kill your computer). I would be genuinely surprised if this DRM doesn't run them (or at least these new chips) out of the desktop market.

And to the people comparing this with HDCP -- there's a big freakin' difference between a proprietary audio protection BS within a proprietary connection on a GPU/IGP (which is only required if you use HDMI, as far as I'm aware) and DRM in the very thing that's running your bloody computer, restricting you from running certain programs, with a kill switch ready if you use it how you see fit and not how the fat cats at Intel see it.

And just as I was getting ready to upgrade my pre-historic rig, FFS... Cmon AMD, hurry up with the Bulldozer. With this DRM crap implemented, I'm never gonna buy another POS Intel from this alone.

P.S. I always knew there would be a catch in that slogan. Now Intel might as well change it to "Intel Insider: GET THA F*** OFF T3H PR0N N TORR3NTZ - W3 SEE J00!"

Seriously though, all jokes aside, I'd like to upgrade by Q4 2011 at latest, and when I do, it'll be at least another 5 years till I even think about building another computer (to an 8-12 core CPU, please, not a quad).

This is just the beginning too. I doubt amd's bulldozer will have drm and this killswitch, so it might be a better alternative for some. typer.gif

Ouch, Cougar Point Chipset Error problem now? Man I'm glad I didn't bite early. I think I'll laugh now at the people who went to microcenter and got the motherboard combo.

Chipset error on 15% of the boards after 3 years. It also only affects the SATA II Ports.

Oh just let him think hes success troll..
While we laugh, Even with "broken chipsets" our i5's still put the smack down on i7's.

Both issues, The killswitch and the recall, Both things that IRL will never affect the majority of OCN members.

Oems already have had problems with the cougar point chipset. These boards haven't been out for 3 years. And do you think Intel would try to soften the blow of this quality control issue and maybe lie a little bit about the figures.......absolutely. But by all means keep drinking the koolaid, and save me some while you are at it, because I plan on going SB in a year when they finally get all these issues under control.

Awesome, that's why I bought an Asus... Advanced Replacement is amazing wink.gif

Good bump.. Sandy Bridge problems from 3 weeks ago. It's important for the OCN community to be reminded that this mainstream chipset is designed for Mom and the kids. Dad's 1366 is still the server of the house.

I can already see the headlines in your household:

Daughter: "Mom, the computer won't boot, says there is no hard drive."

Mom: "Oh I don't know, your dad put this little sandy bridge thingy computer together for me, it's so cute. Let me go see if he knows what's wrong with this little mainstream thang."

Dad: "Oh there was some kind of recall will these h67 motherboards. Looks like the board just finally gave out on that sata connection. Oh darn. At least it didn't turn itself off from that killswitch problem we had a year ago. Go ahead and use the big dog 1366 computer. I'm going Ivy Bridge soon any way."
