Earlier this week, people who played the closed beta for New world sharing began with a high-end EVGA RTX 3090 GPU Stories that the expensive cards were bricked up by the game. It has now been confirmed that EVGA, the GPU maker behind the failed cards, will replace all of those 3090s that were ruined by the MMO.
The website also indicated that YouTuber JayTwoCentz has reported that his contacts at EVGA
New world is an MMORPG that is developed and published by Amazon. Unlike Amazon’s other attempts at making video games
Shortly after the beta began building cards that could go as high as $ 2,000 (or more, ifor bought on the secondary market) Amazon patched the game to address the issue. I don’t have to tell you, but these high-end GPUs then almost impossible to find these days, leads to wild crowds and huge prices on sites like eBay.
After patching the game, Amazon sent a statement on Kotaku that the beta is “safe to play”. I think a few people with dead EVGA cards would likely disagree with this statement.
