New Reports indicate Amazons New World-MMO is again bricking NVIDIA Geforce cards


Recommended Posts

Quote

Amazon's long-awaited massively multiplayer online game New World was released on Tuesday. We may call the game a resounding success because, according to the Steam database, it has already surpassed the maximum of 700,000 concurrent users. It's unfortunate that for some players, the experience has been fraught with difficulties.

 

Again messages have surfaced from gamers whose video card has failed while they are playing a video game yet again. For example, German WinFuture reports that their Gigabyte RTX 3090 Gaming graphics card was bricked after the game was closed. A Reddit user claims issues with an RTX 3080 Ti Eagle from Gigabyte, and in the same post, two replies from EVGA RTX 3080 customers who were also unlucky can be found.

Eeesh. What's the truth to it - defective build or GPU breaking game code?

 

 

Last I heard it was the cards that were defective. 3090's with poorly soldered ram. Presumably all of those 3090's didn't stop having bad soldering before the game launched. First I've heard of 3080ti being on the list but it would make sense that such a similar card might have the same defect. 

 

Why is this game so popular? Or is it's just a lot of marketing? I haven't been paying attention to it, it looks like just another standard MMO.

Not to derail topic; yup I read the same articles of the game affecting certain cards/manufacturers etc too.  Just curious as you because it's apparently beyond the 3090's now...

 

But.. on the game - I've never played a real MMORPG - except Second Life (a long time ago) and that was.. not fun.  However my good friends who are big time WoW players mentioned that NW is better since you can level up any weapon, make two characters per realm, and something else that makes it more fun than MMORPG of similar play.

 

I thought about getting it and I might here in a few weeks - but I'm a dumb run-n-gun FPS junkie.  Since Duke/Doom... ROTT, all the fun ones from back in the day.  CS of course...
 

Anyways. 😛

I guess that kinda makes sense. Sounds like it's just the newest/latest and greatest MMO and all the people who really like MMOs are excited. I've never really been into MMOs either so this was not at all on my radar. The only MMO I ever got far in was firefall and that game doesn't even exist anymore.

Ermmm... no. It cannot run Crysis.

 

Lumberyard is a fork of the CryEngine, owned by Amazon.  Can't believe the game is already pushing hardware this hard on just DX11. Can't imagine what CPU's will be bricked when they go full-bore DX12 soon.

 

 

Ooof..... burn. Literally? 😛
