Amazon’s MMORPG New World has finally been released after a somewhat rocky beta period in which players reported GPU failure while playing the game. Although Amazon did release a fix for the issue at the time, it appears that there is still a problem.
Players have reported issues with the game that are causing GPU crashes and, in some cases, killing the GPU. The EVGA RTX 3090 FTW Ultra and Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti appear to be the most widely reported cards. PC Gamer has received a number of reports (https://www.pcgamer.com/new-world-making-gpus-unwell-again/), including one claiming that running New World causes a potentially fatal error on their RTX 3070 Alienware laptop.
Popular tech YouTuber JayzTwoCents has also posted a video warning players about the issues and giving some additional details. He also includes some speculative information about why this might be happening.
So far, Amazon has remained silent on the new wave of issues plaguing New World players.
