Several reports of bricked RTX 3090 graphics cards have been floating on social media due to the new Amazon game- New World. The Giant E-commerce platform entered into the gaming industry to attain success like other games developers.
However, the game has caused literal damage to high-end graphics cards like RTX 3090. Although, RTX 3090 is among the top ones to get damaged by the game, there are several other GPUs too that are getting physical damage in running the game.
Generally, companies do not replace physically damaged graphics cards, what reason there maybe whatsoever. EVGA, however, has promised gamers to replace their graphics cards. An EVGA spokesperson said, “Yes, all failed 3090’s are being replaced,”.
Jason Langevin, a host on Jayztwocents Youtube channel also confirmed that the company has been cross-shipping RMA’d graphics cards to those who have damaged their card from playing the game.
Amazon, on the other hand, has implemented an update to reduce stress on the GPU in the menu screen, however, this will not affect the game settings. According to several users who faced this issue is definitely due to the game and EVGA’s move to replace the GPUs is praiseworthy but at the same time, it’s a loss to GPU manufacturers and gamers in one way or another.
