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.
So we got quite a number of data-loss time bombs somewhere, and the number still grows.
