Not wasting any time, Taiwanese component and notebook maker MSI has just announced it has begun manufacture of replacement Sandy Bridge motherboards with the new B3-stepping 6-series chipset.
The company announced that consumers would be able to tell the new product by looking for this sticker (pictured) indicating use of B3-stepping parts.
Chip giant Intel announced a flaw in the design of the SATA2 ports in the 6-series chipset on January 31, a flaw affecting all notebooks and motherboards. The company later confirmed it would refund all purchases of affected motherboards featuring the H67 or P67-chipset while stopping the sale of desktop PC motherboards.
Existing users can continue to use their Sandy Bridge computers, provided any drives are connected to the two SATA3 ports (0 and 1) and should contact their place of purchase to organise the replacement of the motherboard with one of the new B3-stepping models.
MSI is so far the first to confirm it is on track with production of these new B3-stepping parts. So if you’re after an MSI Sandy Bridge motherboard, make sure it has this sticker on it.
