's Sandy Bridge
snafu earlier this year really put vendors in a pinch; they didn't want
to stop selling systems, but they also didn't want a ton of defective
units going to unhappy customers. But now that the revised model is out
of the pipeline, AVADirect is proudly announcing that their new desktops
are utilizing the new Sandy Bridge hardware.
The new rigs will use the B3 Cougar Point chipsets that correct the SATA
6Gb/s data bandwidth flaw from degrading over time, and the company has
informed the public that pending orders will be honored as promised,
and newly submitted orders will ship within their standard time frame of
10-14 business days. The rest of the release is actually quite
interesting. AVADirect is one of the few companies speaking out about
the flaw, and they have even thanked their customers for being patient
through the transition. Good on them, and here's hoping you avoided the
whole mess yourself. Onward and upward, as they say!
AVADirect Now Shipping Updated Sandy Bridge Desktops
March 4th , 2011 - AVADirect, a leading custom computer manufacturer, announces all Sandy Bridge desktops are now available directly through AVADirect. Intel is currently ahead of schedule to release the awaited B3 Cougar Point chipsets that correct the SATA 6Gb/s data bandwidth flaw from degrading over time. Pending orders will be honored as promised, and newly submitted orders will ship within their standard time frame of 10-14 business days.
Intel's press release in late January was difficult to take in for the entire industry. There was not much that could be done besides accumulating an immense amount of patience until the Cougar Point flaw was dealt with accordingly. The same cannot be said for boutique builders, such as AVADirect. The custom computer manufacturer worked diligently with its customers to provide quick, alternative solutions at no cost to their clientèle. While working along side with premiere partners, replacement options were also extended to those who decided to move forward with current desktops despite the chipset flaw. Customers have the option to contact the manufacturer directly for said replacement to receive the corrected chipsets relevant to the model motherboard within their AVADirect system.
AVADirect would like to thank its customers for their patience throughout Intel's chipset flaw update period, and will continue to assist its customers in building a unique Sandy Bridge system to their exact specification. Potential customers are urged to contact their sales line for further questions regarding availability, and an exact ETA of when a Sandy Bridge system can be expected to ship to their location.
