EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Cards Reportedly Susceptible to Bricking by Amazon’s New World MMO Due to Alleged Design Flaw

This time it’s Amazon, but the same thing can happen to anybody with a new video card. Amazon’s new World of Warcraft (WoW) game is being rolled out by the company in the US for free, and the first version is a beta version, which means not all players will be able to play it until the game is further developed.

Is it bad that I’m excited about this? I’ve been waiting for this to happen for a long time. I am very excited to see Amazon and its subsidiary Twitch.tv, release their new World of Warcraft-esque MMO, New World, and the rumor mill has been abuzz for months about a design flaw that may impact EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 Graphics Cards. So, what is the flaw? Well, it seems that Amazon’s servers are not unique in the server world. It seems that a lot of players are experiencing the same issues with their EVGA graphics cards after playing New World.

For the past few weeks, Amazon Prime members have been reporting that Amazon’s new World of Warcraft-themed MMO, titled “New World,” is causing EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards to bricked, completely preventing users from logging in. Gamers who have tried the game in the past have confirmed that the issue still persists, despite the game being updated to version 2.3.0.

Various NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards, many of which seem to be EVGA versions, have allegedly been bricked in Amazon’s forthcoming New World MMO. According to Igor Wallossek’s research, the issue is likely to be widespread among EVGA’s GeForce RTX 3090 GPUs owing to a design fault in its cooling system. The bricking, according to Wallossek, seems to be caused by the game’s fan control chips, which are being burned out. Wallossek called it a “dumb design,” claiming that the engineering and components used by EVGA on these cards were unnecessary owing to advances achieved by NVIDIA for its Turing and Ampere generations. Others, however, say that Amazon’s New World MMO affects a wide range of GPUs, from older AMD Radeon RX 590 models to NVIDIA’s most recent flagship, the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti. Since then, Amazon has issued a statement claiming that their New World MMO is safe to play.

I’ve now heard from the following GPU owners who say New World has caused them to shut down or fail… 3080Ti 3090 RX590 6800 6800XT 6900XT RX590 6800 6800XT 6900XT RX590 6800 6800XT 6900X So, once again, the problem is most likely with SOMETHING in the way New World renders. This is not a 3090’only problem! PERIOD!!

[…] As I was able to find out, it is not an area of the voltage converter that is affected by the failure, but the “Fan Control IC,” i.e. the chip for the actual fan control, which is said to be completely burnt out in the worst case. We do remember that EVGA is also working with various additional temperature sensors on the board to better adjust the cooling, based on my research at the time. This is also evidenced by submissions from the aggrieved parties who reported extreme fan whine.
