Has the Sandybridge recall changed your perspective on Intel? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
It happens, I think Intel handled it very well. Instead of just saying "eh..." and being all hush hush about it and trying to just squash it when it was apparent there was an issue, they recalled the whole line to properly fix them at significant cost to their bottom line.

No, but man, I want my motherboard. I was about to buy it when they pulled all of the stock off the shelves. I died a little inside, but I still can't wait to finalize my build.

They are recalling the items because of their own mistake.

If a company does that for free then that is a good company.

Not at all. I was very close to going SB 2 days before the SATA port announcement. It was between me selling my mobo to another member here, or buying his 1090T. Had he bought my board I go SB, Instead I bought his chip and he went SB. Now I'll wait to see what BD brings with performance and price, but will keep SB an option.

No, but it's still hard to imagine they couldn't detect something like that before going to market. I mean come on! It's not a Mom & Pop store here, it's one of the biggest company on the entire planet!

They make billions $ selling chipsets and CPUs. That's what they do. How could they let a stupid mistake like that happened? IMHO, it's a sign of what our society has become. Everything is rushed out to make $$$ fast and easy. How many people at Intel, making alot of $$$, are working on the quality insurance department? Hundred? Thousands? And they let that thing happened? Unbeleivable.

Yes they were quick to react, they are paying for everything, and blah blah blah. But the mistake shoudn't have happened in the fist place. It's a really stupid mistake IMHO for a big company like Intel.

And yes it's annoying to me, since my computer is watercooled, it takes hours to take my mobo out and put a new one in.

Not one bit. As a matter of fact, I'm more impressed with Intel than ever. Back in the early 90's, they produced and sold a CPU with a floating point bug and denied it for months while continuing to sell it. Seems like they've learned to be more open, whatever the cost. I just wish Microsoft was held to the same standards as Intel. ;-)

You do not know much about hardware testing.


Intel had thousands of test chips and spent a 6m+ testing. This was not a logic error. It was a design decision issue and these can sometime be detected only via statistics. There are only a few million components to test a chip and no company can ever isolate each one for testings.
Once again...

I work in manufacturing(building Tires) And I can tell you nothing made is perfect.

It is a good sign intel jumped on this and has admited wrong doing and is fixing the problem.

Just for example I bought the Ipad when it first came out and had terrible wifi connection problems. Apple denied any problems and then a month later released a update to the software to fix the problem they denied.

So we can just be happy intel is a responsible manufacturer.
