Amazon New World still kills graphics cards. Fresh victims include GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3080

The multiplayer role-playing game Amazon New World continues to disable video cards, mostly top-end ones. Recall that the first reports that the game literally destroys the GeForce RTX 3090, GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and a number of other models appeared in July. Then they thought that the matter was in the default unlimited frame rate. Later, the frequency was set at 60 fps, and EVGA admitted that the failed video cards had a “rare soldering defect.” But, as it turned out, New World continues to kill video cards, and here we are no longer talking about defects in soldering or frequency.

The famous German resource WinFuture shared his story of the death of the GeForce RTX 3090 in New World. The symptoms here are the same as in the July reports: the fans suddenly started working at 100 percent, and then a black screen on the monitor and a spontaneous shutdown of the computer. Moreover, the frame rate was limited at around 60 fps not only in the game, but also in the Nvidia control panel (the 3D card worked with the latest drivers), and the video card was manufactured by Gigabyte.

There are many reports on the death of video cards as a result of the development of the virtual spaces of New World on the American Reddit forum. A user under the nickname LuckyPh1L stated the untimely death of a Gigabyte GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Eagle 12G, another Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti died under the nickname SiRQuacKC4. Other reports also include Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti, EVGA GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 and other models.

The situation with New World is complicated by the fact that on September 28 the game was no longer beta and became available to a wide audience. On the first day of its release on Steam alone, New World had an online audience of over 700,000. So there are potentially very many graphics cards at risk of premature failure.

    In my case, it simply hard restarted the GPU. And by hard i mean running the cooling in OC mode for a minute or four.

Top 10 SSD manufacturers cut shipments by 15% in 2020, according to TrendForce

Published

A little more than two months remain until the end of 2021, and TrendForce experts have just analyzed the situation with the supply of SSD modules in 2020. They concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the supply of these products. Affected by the disruption of production and logistics processes, which began in the second quarter, when governments around the world began to impose restrictions, in their opinion, necessary to combat the pandemic. As a result, the supply of SSDs to the channel (retail sales) amounted to 111.5 million units, which is 15% less than in 2019. As for the market leaders, the top three remained unchanged: Kingston, Adata and Kimtigo.

Analysts clarify that when looking at the overall solid-state drive market, NAND flash vendors, led by Samsung, accounted for about 35% of total shipments in 2020, with solid-state drive module makers accounting for the remaining 65%. The top ten module manufacturers provide 71% of SSD shipments per channel. Their shares are shown in the press release published by TrendForce in the form of a table:

No, the Apple M1 Max SoC is not capable of competing with the GeForce RTX 2080, but the performance is very high. There were tests of the new MacBook Pro in games

The GPU performance in the Apple M1 Max SoC exceeds 10 TFLOPS, which can be compared with the PS5 or GeForce RTX 2080. But the TFLOPS figure is not directly related to the performance in games. And now we have the opportunity to assess what Apple’s solution is capable of in games.

And it is really capable of a lot. In Tomb Rider, the top-end Apple platform performs at the level of the mobile GeForce RTX 3060. Yes, we are talking about the 70-watt version, that is, almost the slowest. Recall that the RTX 3060 for laptops has a power limit ranging from 60 to 115 watts.

However, we are still talking about a very productive mobile video card of the most modern generation. Yes, you need to wait for tests in more games to put together a more complete picture, but you can state the very high performance of Apple’s solution right now. M1 Pro, by the way, also looks decent. This is roughly the level of mobile GeForce RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3050.

Of course, the MacBook Pro is not bought for games at all, since the situation with games on macOS is not easy. However, this does not prevent us from evaluating the new Apple SoCs simply in terms of their capabilities.
