EVGA’s broken RTX 3090 graphics cards were victims of ‘poor workmanship’

EVGA has conducted an investigation into the incidents where some of its RTX 3090 graphics cards ended up being bricked for the players of the beta of Amazon’s MMO, New World.

If you recall this affair – which at the time was thought to supposedly affect other cards aside from EVGA’s, including AMD Radeon GPUs – the failures happened when frame rates in the main menu shot through the roof (with a limiter subsequently being put in by Amazon to cap the maximum fps in the menu).

As PC World reports, EVGA has now performed a post-mortem on the dead RTX 3090 graphics cards – the manufacturer clarifies that the bricked boards were limited to this model – of which there were 24, and found that a ‘rare’ issue related to the soldering was to blame.
