Sounds like somebody has been watching too much Zeitgeist and not reading enough economics books.

What?

The bug was only found through statistics and that requires volumes of data.

How do you even know "sold enough defective mobos and cpu's to cover the recall"? You don't and your statement does not make sense. Sold enough chips to cover a recall? What does that mean? Also, CPUs are unaffected.

That's not an economic rule.... Market would punish and adjust price on products that have shorter lifespans.

With CPUs and chipsets, they generally obsolete long long before they break.

(I have an Economics BS.)

They're fully backwards compatible! Just do it already.

but on topic: I was never concerned with this issue. It seemed pretty minor to me to begin with. My understanding was that it was totally circumvented with an add-on raid card or a 3rd party SATA3 controller on board as they bypassed the SATA bus by tapping in using PCI-Express. Not to mention it was sporadic, not immediate, and as far as I can tell, fully covered under warranty anyway. I'll give them kudo's on biting the bullet and working so quickly to fix it though. Then again, no revised parts till april as I understand it? Maybe it's a bit too soon to be patting them on the back lol.
SATA 6Gb/s is native on Sandy Bridge chipsets.

3rd Party SATA 6Gb/s controllers are very much inferior to the native Intel one. Also, they add additional cost/complexity and generally only have 2 ports.

While the issue is covered by warranty, data corruption and downtime are not.

...what are you talking about?

Intel made a mistake. They made a public statement (which impacted their stock value), will lose $300M in sales, and is spending $700M to correct it. They really could have hidden it if they wanted to.

I find it quite amazing that people accept this flaw the way they do. Even if you're not going to utilize, you're paying money for it, so it should work the way it's advertised. Not hating on anyone, but I just find it strange so many people are this accepting of it.

GOOD FOR YOU!!! + REP

Now, on to other news, you may very well be rewarded for your intelligence by being allowed to purchase one HUGE Bulldozer for your computer to clean out all that Intel Fan Boism you have to endure...

I don't see why everyone is so excited about Intel's first generation Sandy Bridge CPUs anyway, it's not like they are all that and a bag of chips, and after the first release an improved version will be coming out in the not too distant future anyway, so why not just keep what you got, wait for the results of Bulldozer and THEN MAKE A DECISION EH? You could have avoided the Intel blunder to begin with! Come on people, this isn't rocket science, look before you leap!!

They could have hidden it? Are you saying that nobody could have found it?
