What "fanboy"? What are you talking about? Seriously

I run Intel, I run AMD, I am convinced that SB was premature to release and this is just proof. Bulldozer is around the corner and Intel wanted to get a leg up on them. The playing field is now equalized once again with proper working SB chipsets being delayed to mass market by 2-3 months.

Oh and, I'm sure I'd not be surprised at what you do besides comparing SuperPI scores. You have no idea how funny it sounded when you asked me to compare SuperPI scores...

If you've already built a Sandy Bridge system, fortunately, there are some obvious workarounds available. Most enthusiast-class motherboards these days ship with extra SATA ports driven by auxiliary SATA controller chips from third-party suppliers like Marvell, and those ports aren't at risk for this problem. As we've noted, the two 6Gbps SATA ports on the 6-series chipset aren't, either. For a great many users, sidestepping this problem should be as simple as moving their storage device connections to the other ports. For those without enough ports, there's always the option of slapping in a cheap PCIe SATA card, too.

Given the relatively strong performance that we've seen out of Intel's SATA 6Gbps controller, we'd recommending attaching any fast, primary storage devices like SSDs or 7,200-RPM drives to the 6Gbps SATA ports if possible. Other drives, like large and slow-rotating HDDs, should be fine on the third-party controllers. Just be careful to ensure that you have all the right drivers installed and the boot order in the BIOS set correctly before making the move, so you don't cause yourself the headache of an unbootable system.

Why are some people so happy about this? Why do they wish failure on new hardware? I mean, i have a 1366 system. and had i waited a few more months, i'd have a 1155 based system. I'm not disappointed that they came out with something faster after I bought my stuff. It's what they do. It's what they've always done. I hope it never stops. I'm happy things keep getting faster and better. Isn't that a good thing for everyone. Why some people want the new stuff to be slower than their old stuff is beyond me. Total selfishness. The e-peen around here is getting scary.

I have a 1366 CPU in my system and I really couldn't care less.

Being part of this forum is an embarrassment at times.

get over the butthurt

Well because AMD have never done this, they only release things they know for sure are going to work.
