PC Makers Dealing with Intel Chipset Fallout

eWeek reports: "Intel executives announced Jan. 31 that a design flaw in a supporting chipset tied to the company’s “Sandy Bridge” Core-i processors is forcing a recall of the chipset. The recall could cost Intel $1 billion in lost revenue and related expenses and delay the release of a fixed chipset until late February, with full production coming in April at the latest."

The problem is a design flaw in the chipset that could cause performance problems in the SATA (Serial ATA) ports over time with SATA hard disk drives or optical drives.
