EVGA Will Replace RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Destroyed By New World

PC gamers who had their high-end graph­ics cards fried by Ama­zon Games’ MMO New World, might get a replace­ment. As long as it’s an EVGA model.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive for EVGA spoke to PC Gamer and con­firmed that all EVGA RTX 3090 cards that were bro­ken or dam­aged “are being replaced.” The cards bust­ed while play­ing a closed beta for New World with an uncapped frame rate. That is what Ama­zon is claim­ing caused the issue.

In a state­ment giv­en yes­ter­day, Ama­zon said, “The New World Closed Beta is safe to play. In order to fur­ther reas­sure play­ers, we will imple­ment a patch today that caps frames per sec­ond on our menu screen.” It’s worth not­ing though that while the patch caps New World’s frame rate while in the main menu, it does not imple­ment any change in any oth­er seg­ments of the game. “This does not affect set­tings in game world avail­able via the Settings/Video menu.” This infor­ma­tion came from a New World com­mu­ni­ty man­ag­er on the game’s forum.

EVGA is replac­ing the 3090 cards rather quick­ly, instead of keep­ing their con­sumers wait­ing. In a video post­ed by JayzT­wo­Cents, host Jason Langevin con­firmed with his own con­tacts at the hard­ware man­u­fac­tur­er that replace­ments are cur­rent­ly being sent out. “I straight-up asked them ‘What are you going to do for the cus­tomers that have EVGA cards that have failed while play­ing this game?’ And I was kind of sur­prised, actu­al­ly, he said ‘oh, they’re already get­ting replace­ment cards.’ ”

Despite the set­backs play­ers have been fac­ing with EVGA RTX 3090 cards, New World has seen some pre-release suc­cess. The game is set to launch on August 31st, and is already the most-viewed game on Twitch and is cur­rent­ly the best-sell­ing title on Steam.
