I've been playing new world since its release on an ASUS GTX1080 Strix and thouroghly enjoying the game...
Today I purchased and installed an ASUS RTX3080 TI Strix and all of a sudden i'm afraid to even launch new world.
Has anyone seen anything credible recently? Was the issue fixed by amazon?

I am hesitant to run it too with my RTX 3080 Ti
It's not just limited to the RTX 3090 model, but also the RTX 3080 Ti

Previously, these issues seemed predominantly limited to Nvidia’s best graphics card, the RTX 3090, with a large portion of the blame directed towards soldering issues on EVGA branded cards. However, there are now multiple accounts of the game killing not only RTX 3090s, but also RTX 3080 Tis, RTX 3080s, RTX 3060 Tis, and even RTX 3000 laptop GPUs. Both EVGA and Gigabyte components have, again, been highlighted as particularly vulnerable to being fried.

I feel like it affects the entire RTX 30 series GPUs...
There's just something that's cursed about that game with RTX 30 series GPUs.
I'd try it on my other rig instead with a 1060, or even some other weak GPU that can run it.
Better safe than sorry.
