In other words, not pre-announcing a new product is not making it any harder for the botters out there.

Exactly. People who make a living monitoring stock (either by physically monitoring it, or by using scripts) do not need a notification. Notifications and sufficient duration queues are what everyone else needs.

EVGA queue was something new.  There were problems.  Adjustments were made to it and continue to be.
EVGA is doing this, now.  They have said they will continue to make changes. 
Ya'll people need some chill.

Except that isn't true. EVGA customer support told me (and I quoted it here somewhere on the forum) that their intent is to use short-duration queues more in the future. That is the most important change needed, and is a change they have stated that they don't plan to make. People will chill when that change is made.



Nothing is ever perfect, and nothing EVGA does will satisfy everyone. You're free to attempt to purchase a video card of other AIBs as well as an EVGA card from Newegg, Tiger Direct, Best Buy, Micro Center, ect. It's no different than Best Buy having a line outside of the store and an associate handing out a limited number of tickets to those whom were in line early. If you're late to the line, do you get a card? Maybe, maybe not. There's scalpers in those lines beating the system. I waited in line for my card (que), just like others. Ran my 1080ti until I received my new one. It's not like the medicine I NEED daily to keep me alive. I COULD do without it. It's a leisure device that brings me joy and occasional breaks from the madness of the real world... I'm just not sure there will ever be a system that pleases everyone, except things going back to normal where supplies are nearly endless.. That's not going to happen anytime soon so gamers have some choices to make I guess.





“If you don’t like it, you can leave” statements such as these go against the spirit of EVGA’s invitation to provide feedback about this new Q 3.0 system. Constructive feedback is not a bad thing.


Except I never told anyone to leave, just they're always free to try to buy a card elsewhere. We keep seeing the same complaints, over and over again. Nobody wants to wait for a card, and that's understandable. But continuing to complain about the efforts of the one company (EVGA) that is trying to get more cards out to their customers just gets old. EVGA, like other AIBs, have contractual obligations to fulfill with retailers, as well as supply limitations from Nvidia. Thus, more cards WILL go to other sites (Newegg, ect). Having a placeholder here at their own online retail store is something that no other AIB has done for the gaming community. Are there any other AIBs with retails storefronts that allows purchase directly from them? I honestly don't know, because I prefer EVGA products, service, and warranty that they provide. Newegg has the shuffle. There may be other avenues to pursue. Complaining that you got here late, didn't get a notification (I never did), and saying how bad of a company EVGA is doesn't supply any constructive criticism. At all. Thus, I defer to my previous post.

To be fair, if one does not like something the best option often is to just leave.

You responded by telling somebody to go elsewhere, when they were simply saying that 90 minute queues hamper the stated intention of Q 3.0, and that EVGA needs to have the queue open longer to get a valid sample size from which to apply Q 3.0. This was a valid point, and a constructive one. Telling them to go get a card elsewhere is not constructive. Therefore, I defer to my previous post.

Re: EVGA Queue 3.0 (Beginning 1/11/2022) 2022/01/16 07:48:44 (permalink)
I see that there's some back and forth here from folks about Queue fairness.  I have gotten multiple cards from the queue.  Part of that was luck and the other part was paying attention to how events have unfolded over time.  Enewt's tracking sheet was pure gold in that in allowed people to figure out what cards were likely to become available.
 
Anyone who queued for, say, one 3080 variant back in fall 2020 most likely does not have a card today.  I get why someone would do that.  "Hey, I really want this one card so I am going to queue for it and go about my business."  Maybe that was the typical approach for the gamer just trying to enter the 30-series world.  The Queue 1.0 system did not help this person unless they were lucky and guessed the correct SKU.  The Queue 3.0 system will definitely help this person, provided that EVGA doesn't leave queues open for SKUs that are not likely to get produced.  Leaving it all open created false expectations for my single-card-queuing-gamer example and led to lots of the complaints we see here.
 
Anyone who checked the forums in January 2021 or June 2021 should have a card today.  All of the information someone needed to know what to do to have a great chance at getting a card was available.  A year ago at this time, it became crystal clear that you had to queue for all cards and many cards are now past that time.  In June of last year, there were numerous 3080 Ti and 3070 Ti launch dates.  If you had simply queued for a 3080 Ti FTW3 on Elite launch day of 6/3 or open launch of 6/4 you would have a card by now.
 
Going forward, my advice to everyone who posts here who isn't happy with EVGA is to please have patience with them.  They are trying.  They are willing to admit errors and change.  And, for the love of god, come back at least monthly and check the forums and I'm sure Enewt or someone else will have great info & advice as to what to do in the 3.0 queue system.

I responded by stating the facts: There are other outlets in which a card can be purchased. Telling them of these sites is information. I have read, and re-read my posts and cannot find in any way where I have blatantly told anyone to LEAVE. I stand by my statements, and defer. I will not continue this argument further and risk a moderator intervention/warning, ect.

So does this mean i'll be able to get into the queue at all now for regular 3070 and 3070TI cards? Or is the newly opened queue just for the 12gb 3080 in a small time window? I never knew the queue existed until it was too late. At least with the Newegg shuffle I at least have a feeling I could be the one and get lucky. With this EVGA thing I can't even notify myself that a queue is going to be opened. Do I just have to keep the tab permanently open as my home page now for whenever I open a new tab or something?

Additionally, about the EVGA score thing, why is it only limited to a 2 year window? I've been a loyal EVGA customer. I have a 9800 in my registered items list! I remember having the 560gtx and 980 gtx sc and am still currently on my 1080ti. Yet none of that counts (though only my 1080ti and 9800 were registered, lazy me). Kinda blows me away a little. Very few people upgrade every new generation unless they're going from low/mid-range to the next low/mid range. I had/have a 1080TI and the gains from the 20 series weren't enough for me to drop another $700. So I waited. Then when the new series comes out and with the shortages I think it is a normal COVID supply chain thing, not realizing the deeper issues with crypto miners and scalpers. So I wait for it to blow over. It never does and I don't actively look into the queue systems and such. And so now I have an EVGA score of 0? Weak sauce EVGA.

Don't be afraid of queues. Open the queue up everyone and simply prioritize that queue like 3.0 says it will but more aggressive. Look at registration dates and prioritize people with 10/16/20 series cards registered but no 30 series. It makes me legit sad that my only real hope of getting a card is for the Intel Arc Alchemist cards to be competitive like they claim and get lucky there too.

It's 3 years. May not help people like you and me who have been around for years (I have over 50 registered products going back to early 2009, about 20 of which are since January 2019), but it is what it is.

Will not help anyone who is unable to enter a short duration queue.

Never has. We all know that stock is very limited. There is no program that could change that. I don't think having people sitting in queues for over a year is a better option really, which is the only alternative to limiting the open period for notification queues. Also it helps stop that queue being loaded up with endless scalper accounts, and I am 100% for nailing those asshats to the wall.
 
 




Except it means that people like myself are almost guaranteed not to have the slightest chance if I understand how the queue opening system is going to be working. Just in this page of replies there is a guy that got a 3060ti, a 3070, and two 3090s and yet is complaining that evga doesn't help gamers. That guy STILL has other things in queue2.0 and is planning on sitting on that queue. It really shouldn't be hard to open the system up to everyone, having it tied to your EVGA account and registration history for odds and then just have a completely random lottery for all the allotted items like the Newegg Shuffle except having extremely high weights for those entries with evga forum/registration history. Scalpers can't go back in time and register only a 10/20 series card 4 years ago. Since sales are direct, you add a new thing into the priority for sales history too, so that anyone that gets something from the queue gets dropped back down in odds. Doesn't seem so hard to me.




 
I got 1 3060 -------- put in a friends build
I got 1 kingpin ------- I use it and own it
I got 1 3090 3987 I use it and own it in my home
I got 1 3090 hybrid ftw3 it and own it in my home
 
I am on the list 2.0 for 1 more card a 3090 hybrid xc3 ultra
 
If you look at my ebay account 
 
philipma1957 you will see I do not sell video cards 
 
Ie
 
I do not  scalp  video cards
I use video cards to create solar arrays to help the worlds environment
We built multiple arrays
and we will continue to build more of them. As I understand how to use the power demand of gpus  to create solar arrays.
 
My biggest problem is most people have no idea of what can be done by have 10kwatts of power used 24/7/365 with 30 3090's or some other mix of video cards.
 
If they did the entire greenhouse effect of global warming would be reduced greatly. Unfortunately most media left or right wing does not show the truth of why burning power with video cards can be use to help the world's power grid not hurt it.
 
This would mean a lot for most everyone if done properly.
I do it as best as  I can within the restrictions I follow.
 
Note this is in response to nereus.
 
I also will not be signing on to queue 3.0 for quite a while

Meanwhile the responses about a 90 min queue not being fair are null in void as that means fokes have not seen or bother searching for the multiple previous attempts from the evga team stating that the 90mins was a test and has nothing to do with the queue 3.0 but yet he we are.  Fokes just complaining about the same thing instead of looking through past comments to see if it was already addressed.  I would much rather they test a brand new queue system before millions of people sign up for it and find out it f’d up, so a sample imo makes sense.
 
So yes, I think its safe to say we’re all tired of the same comments  and I urge fokes to go back and read early on as there is a good bit of info from day one that the evga posted.

Yes. Many of us were here trying to get a card when the transition abruptly took place to the "new system". EVGA listened to the feedback and adjusted, compromised, and we had the que 2.0.
 
But also, it's worth re-mentioning that the EVGA store makes up only a small portion/percentage of their retail sales. EVGA has contractual obligations to retailers, as mentioned many times before. So the ques aren't fast moving due to this, and the other options like the newegg shuffle may get more products per week than the EVGA que/store. BUT, it's still a placeholder. It's still a place in line. 
 
All current que 3.0 info can be found here. As usual, it is recommended to look through the prior pages and posts before asking a question, it may have already been answered/addressed. 
 
And now I patiently wait to be flamed for my post...

I didn't know advocating mental wellness was subversive.
Having very strong opinions is great.  Voicing them is great.   
Forcing people to read the same tired comments over and over in every thread just because you big mad, though?  
In the end, you don't have any true ownership of EVGA's choices so really, that's just, like, your opinion.

Folk who just made that comment apparently didn't read the thread I created (and which I also discussed multiple times elsewhere) where I asked EVGA directly about that and EVGA stated directly to me that this short 90 minute queue is what they expect to repeat in the future.

My points were simple Evga and for that matter other builders and sellers of cards are catering to large miners.
 
At the moment  you can order up to 30 3090's of a make and model on another website.
 
and two different make and models from the same company and same seller are available.
 
the cards are 2999.99 each
so if you choose you can buy 60 cards at 2999.99 = 179,999.40 usd pre tax and shipping.
 
That is catering towards larger miners.

I think its all luck of the draw. I signed up in the queues a year ago for about six different types of cards and didn't get one reply except that the cards were being phased out and that I could opt in and queue for a LHR card or opt out and wait for more stock which never happened. I personally am not a miner even though I tried it for a few weeks felt my electric bill from did not justify the risk of frying hardware so I do not mine but blame the miners and 3rd party resellers trying to get rich and the pandemic mostly for these shortages. I also feel its environmentally destructive to mine so I don't do it. Was always a gamer first. Always preferred EVGA cards though first and foremost but settled on an MSI card I picked up at Microcenter last year. Looking back I feel like I won the lottery or something but the MSI card build quality is no where near to EVGA in terms of heatsink covering all the hot spots but you take what you can get..

Meanwhile the responses about a 90 min queue not being fair are null in void as that means fokes have not seen or bother searching for the multiple previous attempts from the evga team stating that the 90mins was a test and has nothing to do with the queue 3.0 but yet he we are.  Fokes just complaining about the same thing instead of looking through past comments to see if it was already addressed. 

Folk who just made that comment apparently didn't read the thread I created (and which I also discussed multiple times elsewhere) where I asked EVGA directly about that and EVGA stated directly to me that this short 90 minute queue is what they expect to repeat in the future.



I have also posted elsewhere that for testing the queue, if that’s what they want to do, they don‘t have to enable purchases. That functionality already exists and works. It seems folks that make those comments haven’t read that, or used the search function to find it either.
 
- If EVGA wants to test, enable the queue, duration to be determined, but leave purchasing disabled. Finish the test, analyze the results, correct if necessary, and test again. repeat as necessary.
 
- If EVGA wants to sell through the Q 3.0 process, enable the queue, with no short-term limit … 24 hours at least. Let the Q 3.0 ruleset function as designed and tested.
 
They don’t even have to use the public to test the Q 3.0 ruleset. I mean, I don’t want to age myself too much here, but I did this stuff 20 years ago. It’s really easy to populate a database automatically with a range of fake data that would be indicative of a typical sample stated in EVGA’s intentions. That could be used to test their Q 3.0 system without even having to involve us at all. Once you get such a dev/test environment setup, you can easily tear it down, modify, and redeploy automatically as needed.

Hope this helps me get a new GPU! Times are super rough.

After all, you can't get much EVGA score just by writing, you need to buy EVGA products.

Now, how about people who bought a 1080, then skipped the 2000 series because of the enormous price difference, and who now have been looking for a 3000 series for years without success and who are now stuck with a score of 0 with all the scalpers and miners at the bottom ? :)

I have a 980ti that is crashing frequently if I don't severely underclock and overvolt it, lol. Excitedly waiting to pay 2x the money of what my 980ti costed new in 2015, to get a card with similar performance to it in 2022. xD
But hopefully that poor guy can upgrade to his 3090ti, since it's not like I can afford it anyway.

This is true and it's standard practice in the software industry to use dummy data in closed testing. I'm a professional game developer but we still use databases for multiplayer games and any kind of web services surrounding games and that's exactly how those things are tested before they go live. I think they could even copy our real data into a set of dummy accounts and run some automated unit tests to assert that the code is producing the desired results. If they're not doing that I'm not really sure why ... maybe the code is all spaghetti'ed internally and a nightmare to deal with, haha, it happens when a bunch of programmers are on a tight schedule with management breathing down their necks! Maybe they've already done closed testing like this and are concerned about real-world outcomes when this thing touches the wild, wild web or concerned about vulnerability to bots and nefarious parties?

What is the latest word on the Queue system? I'm new here because I'm a game developer desperately hunting for a reasonably priced RTX 3090 ... I lost a lot in Hurricane Ida (I live in Louisiana and work remotely) and have been stuck on a company laptop since the storm and unable to acquire the hardware I need to build a new desktop for my home office. My laptop serves me pretty well but it gets super hot and bogs down during testing and debugging with the game and editor open. We're working on a big RTS game at work, around 50GB of assets with what I'd call "current gen" graphics. My life would be a lot better if I could find a 3090, haha.

Is there any chance of the queue being opened anytime soon and once I get into it is there any hope of actually getting one? I'm even willing to buy some PC accessories from EVGA if it will truly help my chances ...

Honestly, no one knows when the queues from 2.0 will reopen.  Here is the latest update from those queues https://forums.evga.com/FindPost/3515935
 
As far as new releases, those will be under queue 3.0 and the 3090 Ti release that was to happen on 27 January has been postponed by NVIDIA.

I'm honestly checking these forums and looking elsewhere online to find answers too. I wonder when I could enter in the queue for a 3070ti, or really any card for under 1k usd. I honestly don't even know if the queue actually means you get access to those crazy cheap reasonable prices, or if you just get the chance to buy the cards at slightly lower than scalper prices.

BTW, just to check, do you know about the Newegg Shuffle?: It's a program where, weekdays around 8am-10am pacific, you choose what products you're interested in in buying at the prices listed, then later that day, they choose who wins the ability to buy said products, and then you have a 2hr timeframe to purchase them. They tend to be cheaper than scalper prices, but to vastly varying degrees. The last shuffle they had included the 3090 for $2129.99, and the 3090+motherboard for $2394.98.


Nobody really knows when the ques will be re-opened. They have a bit of backlog at the moment, so it may be a while. I'd suggest following JacobF on Twitter as well.
 
The Newegg shuffle isn't a horrible chance, I've been selected a few times but declined due to timing and financial situations of mine or my kids. You'll likely notice that the EVGA parts are usually the most reasonable, as I think they didn't mark up as much as others did.

I think judging by the absolute nightmare of a forum post this has become, I think the following needs to be said:
 
---------
~ The 3.0 Queue system is still a W.I.P, meaning things can be changed if EVGA sees fit.
 
~ EVGA is simply trying to get everyone a chance to purchase a 30-series card, while trying to prioritize loyal patrons & members who haven't bought a card yet. I highly doubt they have any malicious intent in this new system, just give them time and I'm sure they'll iron everything out.
 
~ Buying a GPU is a privilege, not a right. EVGA technically doesn't have to sell anyone anything if they don't want to.
 
~ A Graphics Card is NOT a necessity. It sucks for sure that we can't all have shiny new top of the line GPUs but at the end of the day, if it's not food, water, or shelter, you'll live without it. Trust me, you've made it this far, you can make it a bit longer.
 
~ We're all in the same boat, we all want GPUs, yelling at other forum users won't help anything, if not make things worse.
 
---------
 
Take a deep breath, everything will work out in the end! It might take a while but there's a light at the end of the tunnel, you just have to keep on walking.

The GTX-1050 TI is extremely underrated, and no one can tell me otherwise.

No, you can participate.  Queue 3.0 will be for all new releases just follow EVGA and the forums to get information as to when new releases will go live.  That is when the 'Auto Notify" button will activate.  NIVIDA has said the 3050 will be released on 27 January.  I don't believe the time has been set.

Meanwhile the responses about a 90 min queue not being fair are null in void as that means fokes have not seen or bother searching for the multiple previous attempts from the evga team stating that the 90mins was a test and has nothing to do with the queue 3.0 but yet he we are.  Fokes just complaining about the same thing instead of looking through past comments to see if it was already addressed. 

Folk who just made that comment apparently didn't read the thread I created (and which I also discussed multiple times elsewhere) where I asked EVGA directly about that and EVGA stated directly to me that this short 90 minute queue is what they expect to repeat in the future.




Oh no I read the comment by Jacob an Lee, you know employees of EVGA and would not believe much from EVGA support if it contradicts those two as I am surprised support would say anything about the queue anyways.  I would recommend we stop spreading rumors and just wait and see whats going on.  I think your opinion was voiced, I do think the 24 hour heads up should be just that 24 hours and I don't believe that happen this round but again they haven't even opened it up for the general public yet so who to say they don't open it up again for elite?
 
An the opinions on how to test things and listing your internet credentials of what you do for a living doesn't change the fact of how companies like to do QA.  Maybe they saw an issue and closed it down, yes that could happen as well, again we don't know.
 
So despite all the saltiness were still right back where we started, a new queue and a new week, cheers fokes hope more peeps get a card!

I hope that the queue duration does prove to be longer. But, nothing that Jacob or Lee have said so far addressed queue duration, therefore nothing they have said contradicts what EVGA support told me.
Until it is specifically addressed, I will continue my campaign.
Provide a quote/link if I am wrong. Lee said that changes will happen, but didn't say what changes (therefore not contradicting what EVGA support said). Jacob said that the queue list will be longer, but didn't specify duration (therefore not contradicting what EVGA support said). Queue duration is not defined by queue list size. A list that is twice as big that is filled twice as fast is still the same duration. Demand (among other things) will determine rate of signups; therefore duration is a hard and fast rule that must be defined for Queue 3.0 to work as intended. Just having the basic belief that a queue list can be "filled" massively undermines the stated purposes of Queue 3.0.
