This whole situation Started yesterday When Amazon’s new MMO, New world, Enter the public beta stage, invite more players to test the game. When new players started running the game, some users of RTX 3090 reported that their card was dying because of letting the game run in the menu screen.
It turns out that the problem stems from the fact that the game’s menu system does not have a frame rate limiter and allows the GPU to run at thousands of frames per second. It is possible that the game “overused” the graphics card in some way, thus overloading the VRM and power supply system.
This new patch New world The frame rate limit will be enforced in the menu system to reduce the workload of the graphics card, which will help prevent further RTX 3090 deaths.
We still don’t fully understand how the game can kill the RTX 3090 by running at thousands of frames per second. There are many other games in the menu that can run at thousands of FPS without causing GPU damage at all.
The developers also seem to be confused. “We don’t see any signs of general problems with the 3090, either in the beta version or in our months of alpha testing,” they wrote in a tweet about hardware failure.
At least until now, New worldThe developers seem to have controlled the situation with the new frame rate limiter, which they hope will prevent the RTX 3090 from further death.
