Intel recalls dodgy Cape Cod mobos
You heard it here first
Intel has confirmed to The Register that all its jinxed CC820 motherboards are now being recalled for 'reworking'. A hardware modification was identified at the end of last month that seems to fix a tendency for the mobo to hang or fail to boot. As we predicted here earlier this week, a product recall is now in progress. Chipzilla has also confirmed that a new stepping of the Memory Translator Hub (MTH) is being worked on which will restore some of the performance lost in allowing cheaper SDRAM to be used with the i820 chipset originally designed solely for the much more expensive Rambus memory. ®
