trilesnikHey Guys,I Just got new world and every now and again I black screen and fans ramp up to 100%. I was wondering if I can check if I have revision .1 or 1.0 (I got the card 11/10/2020). I have already submitted and RMA and I am hoping for a 1.0 because I heard those are a lot more stable. I would love to check mine and the RMA card. Please let me know how that is possible.

ty_ger07Physically looking at it is the only reliable way of knowing.
trilesnik@roguemaster Wow, that would be really ****ty to get a .1 when we know the 1.0's are stable (at least more stable). Is there a way I can request that from EVGA directly? Ive been a long time buyer. Best,Trilesnik
zekkragnosdo they have 3080 ti ftw3 ultra revision 1.0? I checked mine and its 0.1.
trilesnikFor anyone else checking, I called EVGA and they said there is no guarantee it will be a 1.0 revision board. This worries me... Oh well, lets see what happens.
trilesnikI appreciate it. I took a look at im at revision .1 Do you think I need to tell EVGA that I want a 1.0 revision card or do you think they are all revision 1.0 at this point? Best,Trilesnik
trilesnik@roguemaster If you get an answer please let me know. Something that was interesting is if I go to MSI Afterburner and put power limit% to 107 and temp limit to 91 celcius, the black screen and fan to 100% seems to have gone away. (Just for new world) Best,Trilesnik
KeithW19The bigger issue is that EVGA hasnt said anything. They havent even said "Hey everyone, if you are running <insert card(s)> please do not play the New World closed beta as we are investigating reports of failed GPUs. If your GPU has failed please request an RMA and we will replace it". It also seems so far that Rev 0.1 cards are affected far more than Rev 1.0 cards. I dont believe I've seen a Rev 1.0 card failure yet though I'm sure they are out there (just as there are GPUs from other manufacturers and even AMD that have failed while playing New World). And honestly I've seen very few people complaining. Mostly just coming to report the issue and ask for help and eventually RMA their GPU. EVGA is replacing them which is great but a lot of people are worried they are simply being replaced with another GPU that will fail. Its also coming to light that its been happening in other games as well so the worry now is that we are essentially playing russian roulette when we play games :p
ksgnow2010Wow - I really need to learn more about this game that is so fantastic that people are willing to risk $2000 worth of hardware, and then come here and complain that they just risked $2000 worth of hardware.
jaredbyoung Like a moth to a flame I guess. Why is it so important to play New World right now that you're willing to risk a $2000 card that anyone would be lucky to only pay $2000 dollars for?
KeithW19I dont think people are doing that... there has no been no official guidance or anything from EVGA on the issue. Amazon has said the issue is not the game but capped menu fps as a "fix" which doesnt seem to have helped at all. I think people are simply wanting to play a game with their GPU plain and simple. And since the cards are being replaced there is some logic in seeing if your card is affected and getting a replacement that isnt affected. EVGA has not acknowledged anything or advised anyone to not play the game in any way. If they want to spend resources sending out replacement cards thats on them. If it means I can get a Rev 1.0 card without the power distribution issues then I'll take it. If you had a car that they found out would break the axle when making a certain type of left turn would you just avoid making left turns from that point on? Or would you get it replaced and not have the issue anymore? If you are dependent on the card then by all means avoid the game to see what shakes out. Worst case EVGA never officially says anything and then every game that comes out you have to worry that its going to brick your GPU. Best case they acknowledge the issue and either provide a fix via BIOS update or start an official recall/replacement program for affected cards.
trilesnikUpdate for everyone: I got my RMA. It was a 1.0 revision card so now I have to see how it performs! I also fully cleaned out my computer of dust (not too much). So lets hope! Best,Trilesnik
