The whole Sandy Bridge situation is finally starting to settle down, allowing Intel to put the chipset snafu behind them and move on. So too can OEM system builders, who have been receiving corrected 6-series motherboards since mid-February. That includes Puget, who announced it's now shipping systems using the corrected B3 revision motherboards.
"We are excited to be among the first to provide the corrected product," said Jon Bach, president of Puget Systems. "We have leveraged our great relationship with Intel, Asus, and channel distribution to work quickly on behalf of our customers."
Puget's applying replacement boards across its entire lineup of Sandy Bridge systems, including its Echo, Deluge, Obsidian, Serenity, and Spirit systems, as well as custom builds.
Other system builders have also started shipping corrected boards, and we've also seen a handful of new B3 motherboard announcements from all the major players, including Asus, Gigabyte, and MSI.
