Amazon’s new game is killing video cards | Digital Trends Spanish

Amazon released a few days ago the beta of New World, A new multiplayer game that has become a nightmare for some people as it is turning into bricks one of the most expensive video cards on the market: the RTX 3090 from the EVGA brand.

Based on early research, the reason behind the issues appears to be in the game’s menu, which does not have a frame-per-second limit. And this causes the card to exert itself to the maximum, consuming so much energy and making such a great effort that it ends up being blocked without remedy.

It is worth mentioning that all reports of similar failures have occurred only with the EVGA RTX 3090 and not with other models, although in Reddit Some users have commented that when playing with other cards – all NVIDIA, by the way – they have experienced a very high GPU use (which translates into increased temperature) and higher than normal in other games.

Amazon is already aware of the situation and although they have lowered the profile saying that they are isolated cases, they did announce that they are going to launch a patch for the game that, in theory, will prevent the problem from continuing to occur. This patch will limit the frame rate per second of the settings menu. New World, who is now appears to be the prime suspect.

But prior to the patch, there are also other measures that users can take to prevent problems with their video card. In the forums New World, an employee explained that the situation has to do with the card drivers and that, in addition to disabling some specific options in the control panel, it is best to limit the frame rate per second within the game.

On amazon they assure that the beta of New World it is “perfectly safe” to play with, but those who had to send their 3090 for service will probably not think the same. And with the current shortage of video cards, getting a new one is far from trivial.
