[MAJ] Amazon’s upcoming MMORPG New World would turn some RTX 3090s and other cards into luxury paperweights


While the first Amazon MMORPG, New World, is currently in the test phase via a closed beta, here is some rather disturbing information: Many players report, especially on Reddit and the social networks, that their RTX 3090 graphics card is bricked. Right now this is mostly EVGA card feedback, but let’s not cry until we know more about it.

On the other hand, many players also present an insane consumption of their card with particularly high temperatures.

If you were interested in a test of the future MMORPG, depending on the configuration, be careful while waiting for possible feedback from the developers and affected parties.

Update of the news of July 21, 2021: it seems that there are new Brick cards listed, among which we can find the AMD RX590, 6800, 6800XT, 6900XT and NVIDIA 3080Ti, thus completing the side of the 3090 graves on the battlefield. Nevertheless, AMAZON communicated on this topic:

Hundreds of thousands of people played the New World Closed Beta yesterday, with millions of hours played in total. We have had some reports from players using high performance graphics cards and having hardware failures while playing New World. New World makes standard DirectX calls as provided by the Windows API. We didn’t see any evidence of widespread problems with the 3090s either in beta or during our months of alpha testing. The New World Closed Beta is safe to play. To keep players calm, we’re going to implement a patch today that will limit frames per second on our menu screen. We appreciated the support New World has received from players around the world and will continue to hear their feedback throughout the beta and beyond.
