A few years from now, we'll all look back at Intel's Sandy Bridge snafu
and remember it as just a nick. A scratch. A minor hiccup in the grand
scheme of things. But earlier in the year, it definitely had folks
running, and Intel definitely took a major cash hit in order to remedy
the problem in rapid-fire fashion. Now that things are being smoothed
out, companies are taking the opportunity to reassure potential
customers that the machines they are now selling are totally free of any
possible bugs, with CyberPower
being the latest.
The company has just announced that they are immediately taking orders
on custom-built desktop gaming systems based on Intel’s
second-generation Core i7, i5, and newly introduced, i3 Sandy Bridge
processors, and of course, these are the ones with any issues.
Precisely, the CPUs with the "fixed Cougar B3 chipsets" across the line,
including the Gamer Xtreme and Infinity models. Among the many models
to feature the new processors will be the Gamer Xtreme 1000, 2000, and
5000. CyberPower gaming rigs with Sandy Bridge processors along with the
6 series chipset deliver the performance needed for HD video and photo
editing, 3D gaming, and extreme multitasking.
At this point, we're assuming that most of the major PC makers have
switched over to the new chip, making this a part of history for anyone
buying fresh. In other words, the coast is once again clear for your
desktop buying pleasure.
