For all the good it did, game is still triggering the weaknesses. That's a token gesture, nothing more, they just don't care.
So they almost immediately locked the frame rate but in your world it means they don't care.
You know this only happened on less than three dozen video cards from one manufacturer that had a manufacturing defect.

Can you explain what you mean by "they don't care."

Amazon has done everything they can do to fix a problem (gpu manufacturing defect) that they have zero control over.

Do you have a link for that quote because the only thing I can quote EVGA saying is what they quoted and that was a batch that didn’t pass solder quality control.
In the case of New World it was a manufacturing defect.

Amazon is in the right here.


Yes they're right about this particular point, but after this long, they still have their part of responsibility. They had plenty of time to fix the software behaviors that trigger these hardware weaknesses.
They never did, they just don't care, or they just care about not assuming part of the responsibility. They don't display any good will about it, so F Amazon too.

3090s have been bricking all year long, it's just been more widely publicized under the massive lens of the new FOTM. Here are accounts from April, the same thing happening while playing the Halo: Master Chief Collection (one person had it happen twice). And a thread on the EVGA forums from February where another poor soul had THREE of those GPUs die from League of Legends. They went on to troubleshoot and were able to prevent the crashing by keeping the voltage under a specific threshold.

EVGA has been quoted as saying what literally pops is an over-current protection mechanism, which tracks with what this other guy was saying yesterday, where particularly stressful loads may be causing individual VRM stages to be overloaded. All it takes is a momentary imbalance in the distribution of 300+ amps for a card to go poof, and it's probably down to them cutting corners on the power management components in comparison to NVIDIA's reference model.
