    AMD hasn’t seen the launch of its Phenom processors go as smoothly as it had hoped after the early batches of processors were found to feature an erratum that lead to problems such as system instability and data loss, but now it’s Intel turn to solve a few problems. The chip-giant looks set to delay the launch of its upcoming 45nm Yorkfield CPUs because the integrity of the FSB frequency is not satisfactory and may even cause crashes. This shouldn’t be a major setback as it has only occurred when forced in a lab rather than in normal everyday computing, but it is likely to add at least a few weeks delay before the Yorkfields become available. The Wolfdale cores are unaffected by this and still on-target for a January release.

    The ever compassionate Intel seeks to alleviate the bleeding of AMD.

    "Hey look, we screwed up too! Kinda... well... a little."
    *smashes chip with a hammer*
    "Looks like an fsb problem."

    At least they caught it before the chips were released.

    If your the company playing catch up,your always on the back foot.

    Its worth waiting a little longer knowing how good these chips will be.

    Indeed because they're already so far behind on AMD. Their current generation just doesn't cut it.

    Seriously, I don't see any rush. In fact they've given AMD a lot of space in the past years and they're still not screwed, I doubt this will cause it.

    INTEL should just release Yorkfield with a lower FSB and higher multipler (e.g. 800, 1066 or 1333). Then the other benefits of Y could be had, and it would be a suitable drop-in for existing mainboards.

    They can always release the 1600 pumped FSB later.
