I bought a graphics card for more than 10,000 yuan, and it burned when I said it burned?
“Just set the graphics quality to medium and click Save, and my 3090 becomes a brick, which is incredible. Has anyone else encountered such a disaster? I have been using it to play cyberpunk for months . So it really doesn’t make sense.”
On the “New World” forum of the Reddit community, this post quickly attracted the attention of players. A good graphics card, how can I burn it?
The background of the accident is this: On July 20, Amazon opened a closed beta test for the new MMO game “New World”. The scene was extremely hot. The peak number of online players reached 190,000, second only to “CSGO” and “Dota2”. “. At the same time, it is also the most watched game on Twitch. Compared with the mediocre games launched by Amazon before, “New World” seems to have unlimited potential.
But in the process of packaging and testing, more and more players began to report that their graphics card had a major problem.
Before it is officially launched, “New World” has become a graphics killer?
First, there were a lot of discussions about graphics cards becoming bricks on Twitter. Twitch Streamer (Anchor) Gladd said: “I used the EVGA RTX 3090 to run the Beta version of New World, and the graphics card was completely burned.”
The RTX 3090 is the top flagship graphics card released by NVIDIA in 2020, and it is also the world’s first 8K gaming GPU. The official price is US$1,500. However, due to short supply, the price in the scalper market has increased by four or five times. Players who bought this graphics card also spent at least more than 10,000 yuan.
At the same time, the “New World” game forum also reflected the problem of the graphics card:
“After clicking the play button of the New World Beta, the game started to load, and then the fan speed immediately increased to 100%, the fps dropped to 0, and then my monitor turned off and my graphics card was no longer detected. I restarted the computer, Everything seemed to work well, and I even tried some other games to make sure there was no problem with the graphics card. So I entered “New World” again and the same thing happened, this time I heard a loud noise.”
The follower said: “I have a card of the same type. I hung up after playing for 30 minutes in the closed beta. After searching Twitter, I found three other anchors in the same situation.”
The blogger “JayzTwoCents” said: “Two people told me that their 6900xt was scrapped in “New World”… If the problem is not just on a certain model of graphics card, then everyone needs to calm down and wait. Wait for the follow-up of the brand’s investigation.”
After analyzing a wave, everyone thought that the problem might be the fps setting. “When the fps is not limited, this kind of problem will occur. The same problem occurred in “StarCraft 2″ that year. No matter what graphics card encounters 9000 fps, it will hang, but the people who develop the game never pay attention to this. a little.”
“New World” game official gave a reply a few hours ago, they said that “there is no sign that there is a general problem on 3090”, but the official will release a patch.
Yesterday, hundreds of thousands of people participated in the “New World” closed beta, with a total of millions of hours. We have received some feedback about hardware failures encountered by players with high-performance graphics cards while playing “New World”.
“New World” runs the standard DirectX provided by the Windows API. Whether in the Beta version or in our months of Alpha version testing, we have not found any signs of widespread problems with the 3090.
The Beta version of “New World” is safe. To further reassure players, we will release a patch today to set the fps limit on our menu screen. Thanks to players from all over the world for their support of “New World”, we will continue to listen to your feedback in the Beta version and beyond.
Is it possible that the EVGA card is not working?
Amazon’s statement did not rule out the possibility that the game may cause graphics card problems, but it is not just the game itself that may cause the problem.
For example, many bricked 3090 graphics cards seem to be made by EVGA. The feedback from the player on the “New World” forum mentioned: “An EVGA card was hung up during the Alpha version of the game, and an EVGA card was hung up during the Beta version.”
The player also contacted EVGA and asked for a full refund for the problem with this graphics card.
In any case, I contacted EVGA to request a full refund or replacement or repair, and I let them know about the problem. However, for about 8 months, I have not encountered any problems with dozens of other games I played with that card. In addition, I have installed the old GTX 980 on the same computer and it is running well, including running the Beta version of “New World”.
So I am not sure what the reason is, it is likely that the two EVGA cards are defective, but I think this issue needs to be treated dialectically.
However, EVGA’s response to the media and the public has not yet responded positively to this question. It just means “We are currently dealing with specific issues. If we confirm the issue, we will post it on the EVGA forum and notify you.”
Generally speaking, the GPU will not hang up because it encounters an excessively high fps. If this happens, it may be a problem with the graphics card manufacturer.
Judging from player feedback, this is not the first time this problem has occurred with EVGA cards. Someone hangs up while playing GTA 5 mod, there is a sound but a black screen and no picture, the radiator fan does not turn, and the red light turns on.
Another player who used EVGA 3090 FTW3 went through this process: It ran well for 30 minutes-the game was black and there was still sound-the fan soared to 100%, and finally there was no picture after the hard restart.
Someone used the 1060 to play “New World” all day without any problems. Some people use EVGA 3080 and EVGA 3070 to play “New World”, and there is no problem.
For players, if you have any model of 3090 graphics card in your hand, all you can do now is not to open the “New World” for the time being, and quietly wait for the official patch.
