A Reddit post reports that Amazon’s upcoming MMORPG, New World (now in closed beta), is apparently bricking graphics cards particularly the extremely expensive GeForce RTX 3090. Amazon actually confirms that have already received reports from at least two users where they have bricked their RTX 3090 after tweaking graphics details.
Amazon reports that this is consistent with a “graphically rich game” but they’ve also remarked that users dial down settings if they are experiencing difficulties playing the game. Amazon is expected to release a patch to resolve the issue.
EVGA made a statement as well saying that owners of EVGA cards bricked by the games are fully covered by their warranty and can send their cards in for repair.
