Amazon New World still kills graphics cards

The multiplayer role-playing game Amazon New World continues to disable video cards, and mostly top-end ones. Recall that the first reports that the game literally destroys the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, and a number of other models appeared in July. Then they thought that the matter was in the default unlimited frame rate. Later, the frequency was set at around 60 fps, and EVGA admitted that the failed video cards had a rare soldering defect. But, as it turned out, New World continues to kill video cards, and here we are already talking not about defects in soldering or frequency.

The famous German resource WinFuture shared his story of the death of the GeForce RTX 3090 in New World. The symptoms here are the same as in the July reports: the fans suddenly started working at 100 percent, and then a black screen on the monitor and a spontaneous shutdown of the computer. Moreover, the frame rate was limited to 60 fps not only in the game, but also in the Nvidia control panel (the 3D card worked with the latest drivers), and the video card was manufactured by Gigabyte.

Many reports on the death of video cards as a result of the development of the virtual spaces of New World are published on the American Reddit forum. A user under the nickname LuckyPh1L stated the untimely death of a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Eagle 12G, another Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti died under the nickname SiRQuacKC4. Other reports also include Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti, EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3, and other models.

The situation with New World is complicated by the fact that on September 28, the game left beta status and became available to a wide audience. On the first day of its release on Steam alone, New World had an online audience of over 700,000 people. So there are potentially very many graphics cards at risk of premature failure.
