Intel's new chipset
Intel reports there is a flaw in SATA controller on the SandyBridge chipset, causing functionality to degrade over time. I suppose functionality goes as in functionality to store data, actually. They say
- the flaw only affects 3 Gbps ports (SATA II), while 6 Gbps (SATA III) ports are OK, but I'd wait for further confirmation.
- the revised chipset will hit the market April, 2011.
