    Intel's faulty chip slows PC production

    LONDON – The design error found by Intel in its Cougar Point support chip for the Sandy Bridge processor has started to impact the PC supply chain, according to a Taiwan Economic News report that referenced un-named sources at foundries and packaging houses.

    This in turn is likely to depress chip sales in February and March, at numerous chip vendors who supply components for PCs, the report said.

    Intel began shipping faulty Cougar Points on Jan. 9, found the problem in late January and announced it was shipping a repaired version of Cougar Point Feb. 7, so some market disruption was expected.
