The V8 engine overheated, forcing the company to temporarily halt production and shut down production of the latest version of its popular graphics engine.
The company, which is also the maker of the Voodoo Suite, said that it’s investigating the issue.
The company said it’s not aware of any known incidents of this nature in the past.
Voodoo Suite is the company’s popular video game engine that has been in use since the first versions were released in 2007.
Videos showing engine overheating and computer malfunctions are a common occurrence with the engine, which runs on Nvidia graphics cards and is based on a proprietary code.
In March, Nvidia announced that it was shutting down the engine indefinitely, a move that was widely seen as a reaction to the growing number of Voodoo suites being reported as faulty.
The Nvidia driver that powers the engine was updated to fix a bug that caused some Voodoo software to become unresponsive when the GPU was under stress.
Nvidia said it would provide software updates for those affected by the issue over the next two weeks.
In a statement, Nvidia said the V8 was a “large part of our business and we continue to investigate the cause of the issue.”
“We are aware of the potential issues with the V9 and V10,” it said.
“The driver for the V10 and V11 is currently undergoing additional testing and will be released shortly.
The V9 is in the process of being released to the community.”
