[INR] Intel Identifies Chipset Design Error, Implementing Solution - Page 27

I'm hoping the answer is no, since the board is the same, but I still want to make sure.
I wouldn't be suprised if the new revision chipset comes with an updated driver. Why would you be concerned with that though? You should be keeping your drivers updated regardless.

In the article they said they had a conference call with Intel..
I'm assuming that is where most of their info came from.

On its conference call to discuss the issue, Intel told me that it hasn’t been made aware of a single failure seen by end users. Intel expects that over 3 years of use it would see a failure rate of approximately 5 - 15% depending on usage model. Remember this problem isn’t a functional issue but rather one of those nasty statistical issues, so by nature it should take time to show up in large numbers (at the same time there should still be some very isolated incidents of failure early on).

Intel's own statement does not mention this problem only affects SATA 2 ports, anywhere.
The email I got from Intel states that ports 2-5 are affected and 0-1 are not. I am assuming 0-1 are the sataIII ports right?

1. Billion dollar bombshell hasn't happened yet. That's their estimate.

2. In the same statement about issue, they also said they predict to have a $11-21 billion dollar revenue (correct figure?) up from some other amount they previously stated.

Investors won't care if there's an issue with a product as long as something is being done about it and the company is still making cash.

My respect for Intel just grew, bringing this up straight away was the right thing to do

I am on a list of customers they will contact when the new motherboards arrive, and will exchance over the counter with original packaging, or do a swap for customers free of charge if that's what they request. Those who ordered online may have to go through RMA with the board manufactureres, which is a bit more of a pain.

Unfortunate issue yes, minor inconvinience sure, but all in all it's far from a fail for Intel, or the board manufacturers. 6 months from now this will all be just a little peice of history.
What if like many, you've sold your old PC to buy SB parts and have no other PC to use in the meantime and nothing to back up any data with. Whatever the errors are with the chipset thats affecting HDD's, could already have affected home users. I personally would be reticent about continuing to use an SB set up until ALL rercalls and fixes have been made. This won't be "just a little peice of history" in 6 months time, some will probably still be sorting RMA issues, others will be just realising their precious last photos of their dying mum's last happy day on earth are now currupt!

Most likely No.

"It’s Limited to 3Gbps Ports Only. Interestingly enough the problem doesn’t affect ports 0 & 1 on the 6-series chipset. Remember that Intel has two 6Gbps ports and four 3Gbps ports on P67/H67, only the latter four are impacted by this problem".

so the sata 6 on the P67 and on the marvell are ok?
