It seems like only a couple of weeks ago that Intel launched its new breed of Core processor, codenamed “Sandy Bridge”. Sadly, Intel has found a problem in the chipsets used with the new processors, and a recall is now likely.
While not in the processor itself, the flaw is found in the chipsets needed on the motherboard for the new Sandy Bridge technology.
With a problem this dire, Intel is expecting to take a huge hit in the solution. Around $1 billion US dollars will have to be spent on a recall and replace, with some manufacturers delaying new computer releases for up to a month.
