Diablo 4 Beta: A large number of Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards were affected by the flaw

Diablo 4 Beta: A large number of Gigabyte RTX 3080 Ti graphics cards were affected by the flaw

Early access to the Diablo 4 beta took place this past weekend for all those who pre-ordered as well as for those who managed to get a beta key. During and after the first beta phase, reports increased that “GeForce RTX 3080 Ti” graphics cards died while playing Church Miniature. You can call the problem simply “Gate Chapel”. However, the strange thing is that in most cases the models from the manufacturer Gigabyte were affected.

The fact that graphics cards smoke while gaming isn’t entirely new. This was partly the case with the New World game, as the main menu generates frames per second in the four-digit range, which is pretty good for some graphics cards. Until then, under normal circumstances, there should be no damage. In this case, the graphics card manufacturer would only theoretically have to choose the components. Well, in the case of Diablo 4’s first beta, it was mostly impressed by cards from the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti series and base models from Gigabyte. This is proven by countless reports on Reddit (Source 1And Source 2And Source 3), but also on the same Blizzard forum (Source 1And Source 2And Source 3). But sometimes this also affects models from EVGA.

In most cases, it was like this: in the cut-scene of the church, the screen turned black and the graphics card fans turned on at full speed. After rebooting the system, the screen remained black and did not receive any signal from the graphics card. It is also no coincidence that graphics cards from the manufacturer Gigabyte died in the Diablo 4 beta. Rumors speak of low-quality components, starting with the Alpha & Omega AOZ5312UQI integrated voltage converter. However, there are currently no facts about it.

An end to the frame can help

To prevent this problem from happening, it is advised to set the maximum number of frames per second in the NVIDIA Control Panel according to the monitor used, so that scenes are not calculated with more FPS than is strictly necessary. Additionally, this procedure helps in limiting the GPU temperatures and thus heat development, and at the same time power is saved.

Those affected by defective graphics cards have no choice but to send the card to the retailer/manufacturer and have it repaired or replaced.

The open beta for everyone starts tomorrow

The Diablo 4 Open Beta starts tomorrow, Friday, at 5:00 PM German time. The open beta can run until March 27 at 9 p.m. Blizzard has also improved a few things over Early Access:

  • Fixed an issue with the Ashava spawn timer. It will now appear on Saturday, March 25th at 10:00 AM / 12:00 PM / 10:00 PM PDT and Sunday, March 26th at 12:00 AM PDT.
  • Fixed an issue where the queue timer would not display any time even though the player was still in the queue.
  • Address issues that should improve wait times.
  • Fixed an issue where players would sometimes get banned during the “In Her Wake” mission.
  • Fixed an issue where players were unable to select high texture settings with 16GB of RAM.
  • Fixed an issue where the UI would incorrectly display completed challenges as ‘not started’.
  • Fixed several issues with various crashes.

NVIDIA has one today A new driver has been released with version number 531.41, which is optimized for the Diablo 4 beta here, among other things. Since yesterday at 5 pm, the open beta can also be downloaded in advance.
