My System Specs

Default

Folks like us who switch boards all the time might still get a SB board (if we can find someone selling them), as we often switch hardware all the time. We could easily get a board replacement later in the spring or even summer.

But for folks who build rigs for others, I would not touch SB systems until the bug is fixed. This will drive some sales to AMD for sure.

...and before the AMD fanbois gloat too much, retailers will have to mark up all their merchandise to cover labour and such for replacements if Intel refuses to cover all costs. This hurts consumers in the short term, as we have these costs passed along.
