News media hardwareluxx has received Amazon’s official statement on the death of the GPU Around its recently released MMO New world. Amazon stated that they did not find any bugs in the “New World” that would cause the game to kill the RTX GPU and destroy the game. Instead, it reiterated and confirmed that this is a problem of poor build quality by GPU manufacturers and graphics cards.
This news was also confirmed by custom PC manufacturer PowerGPU, who told us that it only deals with customers who use older EVGA GPUs. New world, Including RTX 3090s, several RTX 3080s and one 3080 Ti.
“In the past few days, we have received reports of problems with some players’ GeForce RTX cards. After extensive investigations, we were unable to determine any abnormal behavior of New World that may cause these problems.” EVGA has confirmed the problems of some GeForce RTX cards. Production error. The new world can be played safely. Players who encounter hardware failures, we recommend that you contact the manufacturer. “ -Amazon, through points luxx.de
Although some people may say that Amazon will of course deny guilt, but the new world should not be blamed for all GPU deaths, although everyone may tell you. EVGA has confirmed The first batch of RTX 3090 cards manufactured a year ago had solder joint failures, causing the card to die under the pressure of the new world-if it weren’t for the new world, it would be another game or application.
we believe New world‘S game engine accidentally discovered some code sequences that allow certain Ampere cards to consume more energy.This will explain why only a few cards die from New world. If the problem does come from New world Generally speaking, graphics cards will die from side to side, including RTX 3070s and RTX 3060s, and Amazon will be able to replicate these problems.
There is also the fact that KIA has not confirmed that any gaming laptops are from New world anyone. Necessary laptops tend to have better power regulation and are not as restrictive as factory overclocked desktop cards. For any hardware design that allows hardware to be killed by software, there is something to say. If the code can be executed, the hardware should limit any power or thermal load to avoid any failures.
Frankly speaking, it is not difficult to believe that Ampere graphics cards (especially early models) are the culprit.Let us not forget the problems around us poscaps back to when the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 were first releasedDue to the power filter problem of poscaps, many Ampere cards that do not have enough MLCC crash to the desktop. This forced Nvidia to create a new driver update to reduce the GPU boost frequency to prevent the graphics card from crashing during gaming. Future models have introduced improved power circuits, but some of the cards that ran for the first time are still in the wild.
What we don’t know is whether other models of RTX 3090s and RTX 3080s have encountered similar manufacturing defects. We have seen that several Gigabyte RTX 3090s have been stuck (while playing games) New world), and according to JayzTwoCents, A Zotac 3090 caught fire while playing a game. System builder PowerGPU also said that a single RTX 3080 Ti has died, but that’s it. All other brands, including MSI, seem to have no deadlocks.
It is said that some other cards, including RTX 3080 Ti and RX 6000 series GPUs, have died New worldHowever, this may be just a small portion of the cards that inevitably die for some reason. With one million graphics cards, even under relatively mild usage, some will fail within the first or two years.Basically, correlation does not equate to causation, and GPU failure does not seem to continue to occur when playing games New world.
If a manufacturer does end up with an unusually high number of GPU failures, it needs to take care of its customers. Fortunately, recent EVGA cards don’t seem to have soldering problems anymore.If you do experience a GPU failure while playing games New worldHowever, please contact us and we will continue to follow this story.But for now, it looks like New world It is not the root cause of GPU failure, but just a catalyst that pushes a small portion of chip hardware to the point of collapse.
