Starting yesterday it is possible to try Amazon’s MMORPG New World on PC, and although the start was positive in terms of audience, the game seems to be bricking the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards.
Amazon’s New World beta is bricking RTX 3090 graphics cards
In the course of yesterday, a thread was opened on the game’s subreddit by someone reporting that Amazon’s New World beta is bricking their video card. Apparently, this problem is only related to RTX 3090 GPUs of Nvidia.
“I just bricked a 3090 in the main menu after setting my graphics quality to medium and hitting save,” reads the opening post of the thread. “Cant believe it. Anyone else had a catastrophic failure like this? I’ve been playing cyberpunk 3090 on Ultra for months, so this really doesn’t make sense,” the user argued.
“Well. Think this just happened to me,” added another player. “Display went out while in queue. Now I can’t get the display to come back on. But GPU fans run on max when I power on my PC for some reason. It’s an EVGA 3090 FTW3.”
“Add me to the list,” replied another user. “EVGA 3090 FTW3 – ran fine for about 30 mins > black screen game audio still going > fans shot up to 100% right after black screen > hard reset and now no video.”
Another player using an EVGA 3080 said that although his card didn’t break, it was generating extreme heat while playing the New World game.
“In New World, not only both GPU/CPU go nuts in the menu but in game it’s even worse. My GPU hit over 80 C* (after I forced all 3 fans to 100%, first time I’ve ever done this since undervolting) and the CPU over 85 C,” he explained.
Infact, the famous Twitch Streamer “Gladd” tweeted about the same issue: “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.”

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