According to a story posted over at VRZone this weekend, it looks like Intel has not only started shipping the revised, no-more-SATA-bug B3 versions of the Cougar Point chipsets, but has also started sending out the Z68 variant to motherboard vendors. This completely new chipset for the Sandy Bridge platform brings quite a few new features to the table.

Happy Monday everyone; except those of you that might work at Intel. It looks like Intel has found (and is readily admitting to) a pretty substantial flaw in the current shipping Intel 6-series chipsets used by the Sandy Bridge processors that were released earlier this month. What could be so series that Intel is taking the time to publicly out itself and plan for a $700M budget hit for recall / replacement?

We have already mentioned on PC Perspective that Intel had no plans for a new consumer level desktop chipset for the remainder of 2010. This is important because of the current X58/P55/H57 chipsets lack of support for features liked SATA 6.0 Gb/s and USB 3.0. Instead, current generation Intel platform users require either an expansion card to add those options or will need to buy a new motherboard with those built on-board.

You will likely recall that a large portion of the tech world in 2008 called for the demise of NVIDIA's chipset division with the approach of the Intel Core i7 processor that FINALLY moved the memory controller from the chipset to the CPU. At the time Intel had decided to NOT allow NVIDIA to get a license for QPI (the new interface for Core i7 Nehalem processors) and NVIDIA also started to drift away from AMD-platform chipsets, so the composition of those two factors pushed many to theorize the end of nForce.
