Intel Sandy Bridge recall: what you need to know (updated)

What happened, what will happen, and what action you should take

Matt Egan

Intel yesterday stopped shipments of the Series 6 chipsets used with its much vaunted Sandy Bridge processors. The reason: a problem with the SATA controller that could over a period of time cause problems with SATA-linked devices. Updated, 3 February 2011.

Or, to put it another way, the motherboards manuafacturers have been providing to PC makers could cause them (the PCs, not the PC makers) to keel over.

Intel has stopped shipment of the affected support chip, and the design issue has been fixed, Intel said earlier. But what exactly happened, and what can you expect if you've ordered a laptop or a desktop PC with a Sandy Bridge processor?
