EVGA’s GPU fans are trying to hit 200,000 RPM in New World, that might explain a fried chip or two

EVGA’s problem with its RTX 3090 graphics cards and Amazon’s New World are maybe not limited to those GPUs. Or even just that game. After investigating the matter in detail, German tech site, Igor’s Lab, has discovered that the fans on affected cards are trying to hit ridiculously high speeds and that hardware monitoring is the most likely culprit.

If you run fan monitoring software on the affected cards, you’ll spot some ludicrous fan speeds briefly being targeted. Igor managed to grab a shot of this happening with a GeForce RTX 3080 FTW3 Ultra, where the fan speeds briefly jumped up from their more regular 2,400RPM to over 200,000RPM. Gulp.
