Intel began shipping its i915G, i915P and i925X chipsets this week after suspending sales and recalling shipped product late last month, Taiwanese sources have said.

Shortly after the chipsets' launch on 21 June 2004, the chip giant admitted it had detected a flaw in their shared ICH6 South Bridge. The bug could cause host systems to crash.

Some mobo makers, such as MSI, immediately recalled affected motherboards. Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer sources cited by DigiTimes claim that only around 10,000 boards with the dodgy chips were produced by top-tier mobo makers.

Intel will essentially have to cough up to sort it all out: up to $3m, said sources claim, to pay for the boards equipped with faulty chips and their recall. ®
