That would make me absolutely sick to my stomach having a game destroy a 3090. The fact that it's a generic looking mmo just adds to the sting.

Amazon should be held responsible and should replace everyone who had their card destroyed, if they can't get a replacement from an RMA. All band together and get a lawsuit.

There is supposed to be safeguards in place to prevent cards from doing this, it also seems to only be affecting EVGA RTX 3090's, not other brands/cards. EVGA probably overlooked something and will replace them, i can't see Amazon being held accountable if no one else is having problems.

But if it only happens with this game but other games are fine then it seems it's Amazon's fault. How can it be only one game, that's odd.

This isn't the first time it's happened, they've apparently had issues with other games in the past: https://forums.evga.com/Fix...

No game destroy a graphics card. Only the manufacturer can destroy it by not installing safety measures, sufficient cooling and power delivery system.

It's been stated that this isn't only affecting the EVGA models. Jaystwocents stated that in his video explaining this situation right now.

It's EVGA's fault not Amazon's. No other cards were reported to be damaged just EVGA ones.

According to Jaystwocents there are other MIB's that this is happening to as well. https://youtu.be/KLyNFrKyG7...

I mean thousands of people are playing New World at the moment. And the only people with this problem all have the exact same graphics card. So it's hard to blame Amazon for this...

@Vegamyster hmm so it seems the issue is more on EVGA's RTX 3090. I have a EVGA 3070 XC3 ULTRA since Jan. and been using a few of their GPUs in the past along with my current power supply a EVGA 850w platinum. Now I will be thinking twice as for my next GPU brand even though I have no issues with my GPU. 😁
