Updated Intel 6 Series (aka Sandy Bridge) Chipset Boards Product Codes

Mar 15 2011

Are you getting ready to buy an Intel 6 Series (aka Sandy Bridge) based HTPC?  If you are looking at any of Intel's motherboards two things you need to do: 1- See our reviews on the DH67GD, DH67CF, and DH67BL by Andrew Van Til 2- Make sure to check the product code carefully before ordering to ensure you don't get any of the recalled motherboards.

Intel 6 Series B3 Product Codes

Intel has issued new MM numbers and product codes for all boards with the Intel® 6 Series Express Chipsets based on B3 stepping. The new product codes have appended “B3” suffix onto current product code.

The following table will help you identify the branded Intel® Desktop Boards that may be impacted and shows the new product codes that use the B3 stepping.

Comments

btw, As you can see from the 24-Feb-2011 date created listed in the Intel support page this isn't "new" news but a couple readers have asked if a new SKU would be used.  Until Intel pointed me in the right direction I couldn't find the answer.
