For this reason,IntelThe four processors are upgraded from B1 to F1, and the letter suffix E is added at the end of the model. It is recommended that the upgrade be done as soon as possible.
In fact, similar defects occurred on the Atom C2000 series, resulting in the unavailability of network equipment from a large number of manufacturers, such as Qunhui. Intel had to announce a recall and provide reserves to compensate for it, but this time no compensation was offered.
However, Intel soon removed the notice and updated the version today, removing the description of product defects, emphasizing that the existing B1 step version of Pentium N4200, Caiyang N3350/J3355/J3455 still meets the quality standards of PC use, and will not stop production and delisting, Intel CCG (client division) will continue to supply.
However, if customers have a longer product life cycle, the, Intel IOTG (Internet of things division will provide a new F1 step version, fixed LPC signal attenuation defects, enough to use for 15 years.
In addition, due to packaging changes, the thickness of step-by-step version of F1 increases slightly. Manufacturers may pay attention to compatibility issues when designing products, but the specific data are not disclosed.
In other words, the old step-by-step version of B1 does have the defect of signal attenuation, but Intel believes that it fully meets the life needs of consumer PC products (although not specific time), so it will not stop production and recall, while the new step-by-step version of F1 is provided to the network, embedded and other areas requiring longer usage time.
