The New World beta got off to a great start this month. We are talking about the new MMO from Amazon Games, which added more than 200,000 simultaneous players at the beginning of its closed test and quickly positioned itself as the most viewed game on Twitch. Still, not everything has been positive news for the beginning of its beta. As our colleagues from 3DJuegosPC reported yesterday, New World users assured that the beta would have damaged their RTX 3090 cards due to overheating.
Specifically, these users claim that this particular GPU overheats in the game menu, which does not limit the FPS, thus causing errors in your card of more than 1,500 euros. Well, Amazon Games has responded to gamers stating that the fears are unfounded: New World beta is safe, and in case someone is still afraid to play it, they are going to publish a patch to limit FPS in the menu and reassure users.
