Amazon has finally opened the closed beta of New World, its highly anticipated MMO at the turn. In addition to being Amazon’s first game, it is THE title that was put forward to highlight its arrival in video games.

The world therefore scrambled to try out the title, including many streamers, often equipped with RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, including several from EVGA. Quickly, a first message was posted on the game forums from a user who saw his second EVGA RTX 3090 FTW 3 being bricked by New World. Other users then expressed their problem, including one with a Gigabyte RTX 3090.
Subsequently, various streamers like Gladd also saw their card die after a few hours of play.
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.@TEAMEVGA @playnewworld @EVGA_JacobF
I just want to make sure this doesn’t happen to others

Others such as the Joueur du Grenier otherwise reporting repeated crashes, but without specifying its RTX 3090 model.
maj: Since when the pb arrives it’s just the cg that spits and not the computer (I always hear discord like) I used occt and various things to stress the CG and no spitting.
Off stream it also seems to hold up when I played for a big hour.

Where could this problem come from ?
EVGA is usually a company that makes good quality Nvidia graphics cards. On the other hand, this problem seems to affect New World, but if you type red light EVGA into a search engine, there are many posts about RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 from EVGA that died prematurely. .
New World is also notorious for messing up setups and requiring huge amounts of resources. Its optimization is also singled out. When it is launched, it therefore causes a sudden increase in power of the graphics card which must suddenly provide the maximum. Physically, its components must withstand the maximum demand for electricity while having to withstand a heat of more than 100 degrees at the memory level which quickly has its effect on the phases of power supplies placed close in the design of a Graphic card. It is therefore possible that the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 from EVGA find it difficult to withstand a sudden demand for power inducing a rapid rise in heat. Moreover, users using additional cooling on their RTX 3080 and 3090 from EVGA, or having limited the heat emitted to 70 degrees have not seen their graphics card die.
In the meantime, if you have one of those problematic graphics cards, you might as well stay away from New World until it’s fixed.
