You may or may not already be familiar with Amazon's brand new MMORPG New World. Though Amazon Games has had a difficult time producing a successful game so far, with the failure of MOBA-inspired Crucible, New World has been able to capture the interest of hundreds of thousands of players already. Many of us have spent more time queuing to get into the game rather than in the game itself. But perhaps that's a good thing as apparently, the game is destroying player's GPUs.
According to PCGamesN, New World is once again bricking GPUs. During the beta, Amazon Games had to add an FPS limiter to the MMO's menu because it was bricking brand new graphics cards, but though changes have been made, GPUs are both breaking and overheating while playing the game.
Here is the trailer for New World...
The New World subreddit is currently littered with reports of GPUs bricking while playing the game or overheating in the queues. Players are reporting that their new generation cards have been fine until loading up the MMO, and then break while playing it, indicating there is still some sort of issue with the game.
It should be noted that there are those that doubt the validity of these reports, or argue that it's a card issue more than it is a game issue, but the fact remains that if New World is bricking new GPUs then people should be careful. But if you want to see the posts raising this as an issue, you can see No-Cryptographer-192's post and Fit-Base-9736's post as examples.
There are tools that players can use to limit the fps manually. PCGN recommends Rivatuner Statistics Server which may protect your GPU if you're desperate to play. If you're unlucky and eventually do have an issue with your card breaking while playing New World or any game for that matter, it's better to contact the manufacturer for a replacement rather than getting in contact with Amazon support.
