Are you playing “New World”? Here is Amazon’s fix for 100% GPU usage and potential damage


The upcoming New World MMO has raised a few eyebrows this week for the wrong reasons. A number of beta gamers using EVGA 3090 FTW3s have seen their entire GPUs stuck playing New World, which Amazon says is “safe to play,” but they have now posted tips for something they believe. , might help solve this problem.

It’s not just this card, many gamers have noticed that the game uses up to 100% GPU usage at odd times like being in a menu or waiting in the queue to enter. Even though their cards are not fried, a problem according to Amazon is “not widespread”, it is worrying.

Here is Amazon’s fix for this issue, according to their current analysis of the situation:

“Thanks everyone for sharing your reports on this issue, we believe it has to do with driver settings and frame rate limiters.

Disable overrides in the driver settings,

  1. Make sure to press “APPLY”
  2. Restart the game client.
  3. You can also cap your FPS.

This will help to avoid GPU usage issues.

Go to Settings> Visuals> Max fps> Set it to 60, this should help reduce usage.

Also, be sure to check in your NVIDIA Control Panel under Manage 3D Settings> Program Settings> Select New World, and verify that the maximum frame rate shows “Use Global Settings (Off) or Just Off “.

So, they cite driver settings and as many suspected frame rate limiters, where one of the potential issues was totally uncapped images in menus increasing GPUs, an old Starcraft issue, if memory serves. .

Whichever card you use, it would probably be wise to follow these steps. Even though it’s only the 3090 that seems to take literal damage, ultra-high GPU usage for no reason isn’t really something you want to see anyway, and these steps should help roll it back.

New World continues to enjoy a heavily supervised beta launch period, dominating on Twitch most of the time as players have fun in the early areas of the game. Amazon’s long-standing MMO is a big deal for the world. company, which has struggled to release a high-quality version since it started making games, but New World, aside from the technical issues, seems to be relatively well received by gamers and MMO fans. especially so far.

More to come on potential tech issues, but hopefully this current issue can be helped by these steps.
