Intel announced they're in the process of validating a fix for the company's second-generation X25-M solid state disks. Shipments of these disks were halted last week due to a firmware bug that resulted in data corruption if a user set a password in the BIOS and changed or removed it later. The chip giant says shipments of the 34nm X25-M SSDs will resume by the end of the week.
Intel Corp. said on Wednesday that a firmware version that corrects the password-related issue with the company’s second-generation X25-M solid-state drives (SSDs) will be ready to be distributed as early as by the end of the week. The fix will allow Intel and its partners to start selling the new SSDs based on flash memory produced using 34nm process technology.
“We have already found the fix. We are in the process of validating now, and it should be ready to distribute by the end of the week,” an Intel spokesperson said.
