Samsung offers full refund for Intel customers

Samsung Electronics issued a statement today, saying that any of their customers who bought an Intel system with the flawed chipset will be entitled to a full refund.

Kitguru covered the news yesterday that Intel have found a design problem in the new chipset that is expected to cost it up to $1 billion in repairs and lost revenue, while also delaying the release of new Sandybridge systems.

“There are six PC line-ups released in Korea and one in the US, and we plan to fully refund or exchange the product in question,” Samsung spokesman James Chung said.

The issues with the new Intel chipset could be potentially quite serious, causing hard drives and DVD drives to malfunction over time. Samsung have said however that there will be no financial impact on their business as total payment will be funded by Intel.
