Amazon's new game that knocks out graphics cards

Several Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090s were literally destroyed after the gameplay

(Photo: Amazon) Last July 20, Amazon not only sent its founder Jeff Bezos into space for a few moments, but also spread the beta version of a highly anticipated new game called New World. The massively multiplayer (mmorpg) and free-to-play role-playing title with a historical setting in the 1600s, attracted thousands of players. But for some, the experience has turned into a real disaster.

We are referring above all to those who played computer games with a variant of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card installed - a very performing top-of-the-range model. , rare to find and expensive. Since the opening of the game, in fact, the cooling system through the fan operated at 100% of its capacity, the display went haywire until the literal destruction of the gpu.


Playing the New World beta on my EVGA 3090 has fried my graphics card completely. There are many accounts of this same thing happening with the same card with the same game. @TEAMEVGA @playnewworld @EVGA_JacobF

I just want to make sure this doesn't happen to others

Scrolling through the posts on Steam and Reddit, the problem of overheating of graphics cards is not so limited, but we are facing a rather demanding game in terms of graphics and still in beta. However, what happens with models like the Evga Rtx 3090 (price above 1500 euros) was unimaginable on the eve.

The testimony of the user Goatz on the New World World forums is emblematic with a first traumatic and unusable ignition, the test with other games that confirmed the goodness of the gpu and a second fatal test with a strong 'pop' and the card that went directly to the hardware graveyard. Other users experienced the destruction of the gpu during the game and there are those who have lost more than one gpu with substantial economic damage.

If you do not want to wait for the release of the official version on August 31st, the advice is to limit the frame rate using the V-Sync tool for Nvidia cards and Radeon Enhanced Sync for Amd cards.
