Hexus writes Intel admitted the recently pulled SSD firmware caused some disks to brick. The chip maker is working on a new firmware for the drives but it is unknown when the new version will arrive.
Yesterday, Alan Frost of Intel's NAND Solutions Group wrote: "Intel has replicated the issue on 34nm SSDs - X25-M - and is working on a fix."
He added: "Intel is pursuing the resolution of this as a high priority. Intel is seeking direct feedback on this issue from members of the [Intel Support Community]... asking them to send their drives directly to Intel to expedite the analysis of the issues. This action will enable us to more quickly generate a resolution for this issue."
