Well since no Sandy Bridge based laptops have been released yet I would have to say NO.

Is this the "official" stance from Lenovo? Most OEMs have at least SOME notebook products already released with the Sandy Bridge chipset.

Mark released a statement yesterday in this thread, which was also started yesterday, shortly after the announcement.

 

As far as I'm personally aware there are no ThinkPad systems on the market with the second generation cpus and Sandy Bridge chipsets.

Re: Intel's Chipset Design Error?

All,


The information that I have at this time indicates that only some IdeaPad, IdeaCentre and some essential series systems are affected.  No Think branded products are known to be affected at this time. 

 

A more complete and formal update is being developed, and I would expect it will be posted to the support site, along with details on how customers can determine if they have and affected model, and the steps that Lenovo is taking to resolve.

 

Thanks,

 

Mark

Nice to know that the next ThinkPads will be using SATA-III, SATA-II is the only thing effected by this bug.

Re: Intel's Chipset Design Error?

Today we received a Thinkpad T520.

 

It is equipped with a stepping B2 chipset, so it would be affected if the SATA-II ports are used.

 

According to the QM67 chipset datasheet ( http://www.intel.com/Assets/PDF/datasheet/324645.pdf ) the chipset has 2 SATA-III ports and 4 SATA-II ports.

If I'm right the Thinkpad has

- an internal SATA HDD

- the possibility to put a SATA HDD in the UltraBay

- an external eSATA port

 

That makes 3 SATA ports total, so one of them must be using SATA-II and must be affected, right?
