Want to see if your system can run Amazon Games' new MMORPG, New World? Look no further.

Players are a bit worried about their precious PCs following some unfortunate news about New World. Early on in the recent closed beta, a certain section of players found their high-quality graphics cards were getting "bricked" when running the game. Supposedly, New World's lack of frame rate cap caused some GPUs to render a rate much higher than its programmed limit. This has not been confirmed by Amazon Games'—but they compiled with player concerns, regardless. At the time of writing, the developer has done its best to resolve the issue on its side by releasing a patch that caps frame rates in certain areas.
