Serious Glitch in Intel’s Grantsdale Chip Uncovered

Intel has discovered a glitch involving some of the I/O controllers in the company’s new “Grantsdale” chip set, which can cause a PC to fail to boot up or to freeze.


Between 100,000 and 200,000 chipsets are affected, according to one Wall Street analyst, who pubished a report to his clients on Friday. Intel had polled its customers for the lot numbers of the affected chips, which were sent to manufacturers before the chipset’s official launch this past Monday. Samples of the lots are being sent to Intel for further testing.
