Amazon’s New World Is Popular And Bricking Expensive Graphics Cards

Amazon-developed MMORPG New World‘s closed beta session launched recently, and it’s the talk of the town. Both in numbers and in heated news.

First: the good. New World has hit a peak of 190,811 players in its closed beta session according to SteamDB, and has 700,000 live viewers watching 9,000+ individual channels playing the game on Twitch. Keep in mind that the game can be run without racking up playtime on Steam, meaning players who aren’t happy with the purchase can refund it without much hassle. At least until the game is out for real this 31st August.

Now the bad: the game is killing GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards. That’s bad enough, but this expensive graphics card is currently pretty hard to come by as well due to recent news about its stock being low from all the cryptocurrency business the past few months.

According to the New World subreddit, users have noticed the dying of the light from their RTX 3090 cards. Ditto Twitter:

Long story short: you may not want to run New World uncapped and having it overheat your GPUs in the meantime. Instead, play the game with a capped frame rate and in an underclocked condition so that you won’t kill your expensive and hard-to-find graphics card.
