[Atualizado]: THE Amazon Games sent an official press release, which you can see below:
“Hundreds of thousands of people participated in the New World closed beta yesterday, with millions of total hours played. We’ve received some reports of players using high performance video cards and experiencing hardware failures while playing New World. New World makes standard DirectX calls, as provided by the API. Windows. We didn’t see any indications of widespread issues with 3090 series cards, either in beta or during several months of alpha testing. New World closed beta is safe to play. To strengthen this security for players, we will be implementing an update patch today with the option to limit frames per second (FPS) on the menu screen. We are very grateful for all the support players have been giving to New World around the world, and we will continue to listen to your feedback throughout the beta and beyond.”
[Original]: Some players are already participating in the Beta of New World, MMORPG created by Amazon, but the experience is not being the best for a portion that has the RTX 3090 card in their computers.
According to messages posted on Reddit, a group that is simply trying to load the game saw the RTX 3090 boards “fry” (especially the EVGA RTX 3090 models), forcing their owners to contact the manufacturers for a refund or a new piece. Even variations of this same board from other manufacturers are experiencing problems such as overheating and fluctuations in power usage.
A youtuber known as Gladd even posted a message on Twitter reporting this fact (the video card that was in your computer also broke) and asking other people to be careful when running the game.
Playing the New World beta on my EVGA 3090 has fried my graphics card completely. There are many accounts of this same thing happening with the same card with the same [email protected] @playnewworld @EVGA_JacobF
I just want to make sure this doesn’t happen to others

It is noteworthy that, until the time of publication of this news, not even the Amazon or the RTX 3090 card makers had expressed their opinion on the matter or offered some sort of solution so that the same doesn’t happen to other people when the title moves into the Alpha test phase.
