Submission + - Intel discovers SATA chipset bug, $300M to fix (anandtech.com)

jmcbain writes: Anandtech reports that Intel has identified a bug in the 6-series chipset, specifically in its SATA controller. Intel states that "In some cases, the Serial-ATA (SATA) 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 will begin shipping the fixed version of the chipset in late February. The recall will reduce Intel's revenue by around $300 million and cost around $700 million to completely repair and replace affected systems.
