Intel Discovers Bug in 6-Series Chipset
By Thom Holwerda, submitted by gogothebee on 2011-01-31 22:41:57
"Intel just announced that it has identified a bug in the 6-series chipset, specifically in its SATA controller. Intel states that 'In some cases, the Serial-ATA ports within the chipsets may degrade over time, potentially impacting the performance or functionality of SATA-linked devices such as hard disk drives and DVD-drives'. The fix requires new hardware, which means you will have to exchange your motherboard for a new one. Intel hasn't posted any instructions on how the recall will be handled other than to contact Intel via its support page or contact the manufacturer of your hardware directly."
