Remember the hustle and bustle of Amazon's New World beta in July? It had nothing to do with the game itself, but it actually destroyed a number of EVGA RTX 3090 cards. Now, the hardware manufacturer has revealed the cause of the problem: poor soldering.
There are several reports of EVGA RTX 3090 cards, along with unconfirmed reports of other cards from different generations, manufacturers, and AMD being used by the New World Beta. Amazon, which says it has not found any signs of widespread problems, appears to have not implemented a frame rate limiter in the menu system, which reduces the in-game frame rate from 100 frames per second to 800 frames per second. . To fix the issue, a patch has been released that puts frames per second on the menu screen. In a statement to PC World, the company said that theories that the card's cooling system is somehow responsible are incorrect. "It has nothing to do with the fan control unit in terms of look and feel," a spokesperson said. The fan control is not working, even if it is. The company has released a microcontroller update that shows that the fan controller is working properly on updated versions of the tools.
According to EVGA, the real cause of the crashes was "poor performance". In particular, secondary soldering is performed around the MOSFET circuits of the cards. He added that only a few primary products produced in 2020 suffer from this problem, and the affected category includes less than 1 of the total graphics cards sold by the company.
The release of the RTX 3090 seems to have no bearing on anticipating the full release of the new world. The MMO is at number two on Steam's list of favorite games.
