Just for the sake of completeness, we felt it important to mention that
Puget Systems -- one of the smaller system builders out there -- is also
shipping corrected Sandy Bridge PCs now. At this point, we'd be
surprised if your favorite PC maker wasn't shipping the new kit. Intel's
Sandy Bridge snafu seems to be almost over, and that's great news for
everyone. The first revision of Sandy Bridge chipsets suffered from a
design flaw that caused performance degradation over time on 3Gb/s SATA
Systems posted a response to the issue, providing options
to circumvent the flaw, or wait for the correction. The new chipset
revision corrects this design flaw.
The new B3 chipset will ship on the Echo, Deluge, Obsidian, Serenity,
and Sprit desktops starting today, so if you've been holding out, now's
the time for that to end.
