Do RTX 3080s still get bricked by highly intense concentrated loads, like the issue they had in New World?

Hey all,

 

Basically I was going to buy an RX 6900 XT, but after checking a lot of the games I want to play I want to take advantage of Ray Tracing and DLSS as well, which means I'm going for an RTX 3080 10GB model. The reason I'm going for 10GB instead of 12GB is because basically the 12GB models are around 100-150 euros more expensive and I'm not gaming at 4K to really need the extra memory.

 

I searched around on the internet, but I couldn't find any exact answers, I understand some GPUs were being bricked by New World because they had assymetrical power phases or something?

 

Realisitcally, my best choices are between an MSI RTX 3080 Gaming Z Trio, an Asus RTX 3080 TUF OC v2 or a Gigabyte RTX 3080 Gaming OC v2. At this moment, the Asus TUF GPU is around 80 euros more expensive than the MSI Gaming Z Trio, meanwhile the Gigabyte one is the cheapest of the three being 50 euros cheaper than the MSI Gaming Z Trio, and 130 euros cheaper than the Asus TUF.

 

I understood that Gigabyte models especially were being bricked by New World, and I don't know if the company fixed the issues which caused them to die suddenly (I understand they were hardware issues). I have no info related to MSI, and I understand Asus is pretty safe.

 

Still, considering those prices, would you still recommend Asus anyway? Or should I go with MSI or gigabyte?

 

Ah for reference, the Asus TUF model comes in at 1083e, MSI comes in at 1003e and Gigabyte at 953e.

Most of the cards affected were 3080ti and 3090 with higher power limits and Alpha Omega caps. Those that played with an fps cap mostly reported no issues, and i'm not sure about others but EVGA has had a revision replacing said caps. I wouldn't say there's no chance that it'll happen but it's less now.

 

For a 3080 i wouldn't worry about it, just use a fps limiter
