haha, don't forget AMD with their defective CPU the 9x00 series, never was recalled, their fix was a bios update that made it slower, and later released 9x50 series that was fixed.

while recall is always bad, ignoring the issue for very long time (years) like Toyota, or still being in denial like Apple, or never recalling the product like AMD is much worse.

You have such a patent bias against AMD... the original Phenoms with their TLB errata bug was more over-blown than this issue with SB is.

AMD really had no reason to do a recall- 99.999999999% of people with these CPUs would never, ever see the issue. And it didn't really slow the chips down. I went from a 9600 Black Edition (stock) to a Q6600 (stock)- saw absolutely *zero* gains either in gameplay, or at the desktop during day to day use. In fact, the 9600BE felt a bit smoother opening apps and seemed to take a bit less to get to the desktop upon first boot.

Since you hate AMD so much why are you running them just to bad mouth them every chance you get? Ditch them and go pure Intel like Slawter. Superior CPU performance, superior chipset performance, and we'd likely have to hear less of your incessant wining.

If you ever do say a positive comment towards AMD it's vastly out-weighed by all the negative comments you throw their way. The fact is for the over whelmingly vast majority of PC users their products are absolutely above and beyond sufficient- especially for the prices their parts go for.

price is the reason why I buy their product, but I will also not lie and say that there are no issues with them. if you want to live in denial that is up to you.

Because those are still minimum 6 months away or more. And Sandy Bridge whoops the dog snot out of Nehalem. Good enough reason for me.

muppet has Nehalem and SB does not whoop any snot out of X58/I7. while it can be a bit faster, it also takes couple steps back

SB is upgrade to 1156, not the 1366

New socket that slawter mentioned will be a true replacement for 1366.


Nehalem to SB right now is not wise, when a true replacement will be out in about 6 months.
From Intel point of view they done it smart, trick the people to upgrade their machines to new "lower" end sytems, and then make the upgrade again when the true high-end platform becomes available, more money for them.

From the sound of the issue it won't actually be noticeable for a long time down the road. So it's nice of them to recall boards now instead of just ignoring the problem and facing it down the road.

That being said, I am sure a cost analysis led them to this decision. (i.e. the cost of a recall is less than the cost of affected chipsets times average settlement cost)
