Was sizing up the i7-2600 against the older i7-950.

Sandybridge was looking good, but with some AVCHD work looming I can't afford to wait until May for Intel to sort itself out.

Decision made ...

Thanks !

Degradation of SATA silicon is pretty serious. If this went unnoticed, Sandy Bridge based SATA 3GB/s RAIDs will start dropping like flies in the future.

It is quite re-assuring that according to published reporting, Intel have moved quickly on this and that one of their clients applied due rigour to the system in testing and reported it.

Also encouraging it is, to see crisis management methods which do not embrace the barrier of denial tactics we have become accustomed to from other large outfits across several industries.

As much as I drag my feet on giving credit where credit is due to big outfits, this one deserves due respect.

Also perhaps feel some empathy for the R & D folks who sickened on receiving the phone call that something tricky had got past them into the production line.
