EVGA has offered to replace any of its GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards that were ruined by Amazon’s upcoming MMO, New World. A spokesperson for the company confirmed the decision with PC Gamer today, noting that “all failed 3090s are being replaced.” This is great news, being that EVGA’s GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards start at $1,599.99. Most of the GPUs that have been affected have reportedly been EVGA models, which has led some to believe that there is some sort of defect or poor design specific to the manufacturer’s GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards. Users on EVGA’s official forums and other social media continue to demand answers from the company.
According to Jason Langevin, host on the JayzTwoCents YouTube channel, his contacts at EVGA have also confirmed they have been cross-shipping RMA’d products out to card owners whose GPUs have fried as a result of the New World beta. That means as soon as the RMA ticket has been approved, cards are being shipped out before the b0rked one has been returned and tested.
