[bit-tech]Fixed Sandy Bridge chipset ‘begins shipping’ - Page 4

post #31 of 35
How can I know I'm getting a B3 stepping when they come out? The old, flawed boards are still being sold, so how will I tell the difference? Sure, some of the manufacturers are gonna mark their new B3 stepping boards, but I doubt shops are going to update their pics/info. These guys are selling the flawed boards without even notifying buyers of a problem so why should I expect them to do the right thing and send me a B3 stepping?

As much as I'm hoping Bulldozer will be the next big thing, I honestly doubt it.

And I don't really want to wait until April.

I hope I can get a fresh new mobo by early March.
Solution A:
1. Get Athlon II x2 + free AM3 mobo @ Microcenter for $58
2. Be able to use your system till SB is back

Solution B:
1. Weep and cry when HD video doesn't play

EDIT: Owait you're in Portugal

My guess is that they have to ship them out via boat, as it would cost too much to ship via air.

For example.
boat = slow, but cost effective
air = very fast, but your mobo may cost $500 after all is said and done

If you constantly play the waiting game, you'll always be waiting for the next best thing thats right around the corner and never actually buy anything. Buy what you want and can afford when its out and be happy
