Default Intel resumes shipping of faulty Sandy Bridge chipsets

After causing chaos among motherboard makers by revealing a flaw in its 6-series motherboard chipsets, Intel has announced plans to recommence shipments of the faulty silicon, before the fixed chips have even started shipping.

In a statement, Intel claims it decided to start reshipping the chipsets after lengthy discussions with computer manufacturers. 'As a result of these discussions and specific requests from computer makers,' says the company, 'Intel is resuming shipments of the Intel 6-series chipset for use only in PC system configurations that are not impacted by the design issue.'

The decision to reship the unrevised silicon will also enable certain laptop manufacturers to continue using the chipsets, as their products are only ever likely to use two SATA ports in their lifetime anyway. Indeed itís likely to be in their interests to use the defective chipsets, as we can only imagine that Intel is applying a hefty discount to the chips to get them shifted.
