Samsung’s Spinpoint F3’s don’t like the new AMD SB850 Southbridge

Korean manufacturers Samsung seem to be having problems with their latest Spinpoint F3 drives and motherboards with AMD’s SB850 southbridge. They have released firmware patches for the drives here.

Fingers crossed these patches alleviate any issues AMD users may be having with Samsung F3’s, which seem to be otherwise brilliant drives (our very own Tom Logan is using 12 of them in his home server)!
