    Apparently, Amazon's New World closed beta MMO doesn't limit frame rates in the menu screens and some folk are saying it killed their EVGA 3090 FTW3. It seems to be limited to that model though.

    Without wanting to wade into the sort of debate happening in that comments section, it does strike me that the failure is in all likelihood essentially a hardware problem specific to the model.

    While the game is clearly buggy and causing an unusual load that should by no means kill a card.

    Obviously, it's an issue specific to that model - but it is a popular model. Thought it was worth highlighting.

    There are claims it ain't limited to a specific card:


    And worse, that the issue was supposedly known already during the Alpha.

    Obviously the card's offended that you would lower it to playing an Amazon Studios game. To be fair if the choice was between that and not gaming at all, I'd choose not gaming at all too.
