Amazon's new video game might be bricking high end graphics cards during beta testing

Seems like something is wrong. PC Gamer:

EVGA has confirmed to us that every one of its GeForce RTX 3090 cards that have been killed by issues with the New World MMO closed beta will be replaced by the company: "Yes, all failed 3090’s are being replaced," a spokesman for the company has said. 

The developer, Amazon Games Studios, has now released a hotfix which clamps the FPS in the menu without affecting the rest of the game, despite assuring gamers that the closed beta was "safe to play" regardless of any patch.
