New World, Bricked A GTX 1080 (Gaming / MMORPG)

New World, Bricked A GTX 1080 (Gaming / MMORPG)

I'm pretty sure everyone knows about New World by now and I'm also sure everyone knows about its history of bricking 3080 and 3090 GPU graphics cards specially from EVGA and Gigabyte.

Well, recently, I saw a reply in Twitter saying something about New World bricking a 1080 GPU graphics card.

According to the reply or tweet and I quote, "Wow mine actually bricked last night from playing new world . Was fine on low setting until I noticed it somehow changed to high settings and then I updated my gtx 1080 drivers and now my GPU is shot".

The GPU mentioned in the tweet reply was not a 3080 nor a 3090 but a 1080 and it was my first time seeing or reading someone claiming something like this.

Anyway, this is just one claim posted in Twitter and, with over 500,000 New World players playing at one time, I'm sure many more claims will start appearing if it's indeed happening.

For now, play New World in windowed mode, low graphics, vsync on, FPS capped at 30 or 60 and with your GPU / CPU temperature monitor displayed at all times.

So guys, what are your thoughts about this claim of a 1080 GPU bricking? Are we going to see more claims of GPU bricking because of New World? Post your answers, as well as your comments, questions or reactions in the comments section below.
