Haswell Intel CPUs are out.

Intel fixed it in the "B3" stepping. A number of manufacturers added "(B3)" to their model numbers to indicate that they had the B3 chipsets. But it cost Intel some $700 million to replace 8 million shipped and installed chipsets.

Gigabyte uses USB Hubs on most of their models nd this bypasses the Intel USB bug.
"GBT’s use of hubs for all backpanel ports was first due to user demand, but there is also a secondary usefulness, and that is that ports that go through hubs should be immune to the Intel USB 3.0 bug that everyone talks about."

The damage was extensive but not catastrophic; the design of the Wuxi plant is such that it can maintain reduced production even with its cleanroom out of service, and the equipment was largely undamaged.
They said the plant will be on reduced production for 3 to 6 months; this has already caused a substantial rise in the price of flash RAM and DRAM, and price will probably remain high for some time after the plant is back up to full production. Hynix has other plants that will increase production to compensate in part.
Companies that have substantial DRAM and flash RAM production: Samsung, Micron, SanDisk, and ironically Hynix as well, will make a killing on the supply-demand curve.
It is not anywhere as catastrophic as the floods in Thailand that broke up the worldwide trade in hard disks. We're still seeing problems from that.
