I know all of us are frustrated by the lack of video cards. I have been waiting for over a year (9/17/20 & 9/19/20) But when I see miners showing they scored 40 Evga RTX 3080's (albeit it was 4 months ago) I get a little irritated. EVGA could probably just stop selling to their partners and still we would wait a year.. or two... or three... by the time the 6080 series was out we could get our 3080's. My head explodes, I feel much better now.

    If you stayed in the "KR" product sku queue, you're probably never getting a card. EVGA sent an email to everyone regarding the sku change and gave you the option to move over the "KL" series. Nvidia themselves are no longer making any full hash rate GPUs for anything but the RTX 3090 and if Nvidia isn't making them, EVGA can't get them. Also if you chose a "XC" or "Black" version of a card you're likely not getting one any time soon either as EVGA themselves said they encourage people to opt for the FTW3 and XC Ultra models that were in better supply.

    Nvidia is still making the 3080FE cards non LHR so clearly they're producing those boards still. Assuming it is a physical limiter. 
     
    Step up is a great way to get a 3080, I had stepped up my 3060 from about 6 months ago and just shipped it back today. Not bad at all!

    NVIDIA may still have the 3080 FE in their SKU list.  However, actually buying one, other than eBay ("Lightly Used" - $2,200.), is another matter.

    Oh for sure, I never said they were available lol. Just interesting that they're still making them non limited. I'd love to know if it's actually "hardware" or if it's just something software related that's just well hidden.

    Their second iteration is both firmware and hardware.  
     
    I don't believe that NVIDIA is actively producing non-LHR 3080 FEs.  It may just be on the books, like several SKUs of AIBs that aren't active anymore.

    The cards I requested are:
    9/19/2020 10G-P5-3883-KR 2:27:50 PM PT. EVGA did not auto change this to KL   
    9/17/2020 10G-P5-3881-KL 2:11:37 PM PT. EVGA did auto change this to KL
    I had a number of 3060's in the que just to increase my chances. I deleted them all after the que change as EVGA said to only have two.
    I figured if I tried the step-up route, I wouldn't be able to step up due to the lack of availability. I am glad to hear at least some people are able to do this.
    If we don't get a card by the time the 4080's are out I wonder if they would put us in the beginning of the que for that card instead... One can always dream!

    Firstly those are all XC "gaming" or "black" models and they said they would be in short supply or virtually not at all and recommended people to opt for the FTW3 Ultra and XC Ultra models since they were more regularly being made. Then on top of that, you still have a KR sku in your notifies. 
     
    As far as I'm aware, they didn't just leave anyone in the KR queues and you had to manually opt to stay in that queue. Regardless though as it may be because I'm sure they just aren't making the low end entry levels cards at this point anyway. 
     
    And no, they will not be putting those that didn't get a 30 series cards in the front of any hypothetical 40 series card queue should your notifies still not be sent in that time.

    It is true, they did not migrate my original KR request.
     
    However, how do I change my model request without being sent to the back of the line?
    I will assume that I will be placed at the back of the line of whatever I change my card to which is about the same as waiting in a line for a product that no longer exists...

    There is no changing, the queues are closed. You are in 2 dead end lines.

    However, both XC and black have gone a long way while they had said not to choose them. I had already kept two cards in the queue before EVGA came out and told us to keep two cards, one 3663 that I want for me and the other 3897 that a friend has asked me and I do not care at all if I finally get it and if I could I would I went out of the queue and I would only stay with the 3663

    There is no reason to buy something from EVGA again.

    Yeah...you missed your chance. There have been notices to change to a more active queue and plenty of posts on the forum since then explaining why you most likely never see those cards even if you queued up since September of 2020. Due to the chip shortage and high demand and people paying insane prices for any card, it makes no sense to waste chips on a lower model when people are willing to pay the extra prices for a premium card.  If you're in the US, you could try emailing support and see if you can get back into one of the 3060s...and or delete your old queues for the 3080 ftw or 3090. Yes, you'll still have to wait a long time but better waiting a long time then waiting forever and most likely not seeing those cards you queued up for.

    To give you some hope, there are rumors that there may be a refresh of these GPUs coming soon, possibly.  So keep on the lookout.

    If you are talking about the non lhr chip, then it is still being made. Founder editions, plus stuff for large intergrators like Lenovo are non LHR.

    I thought the change was automatic to move in LHR queue and if you wanted to opt out of the chance and go back to the none LHR you have to email them? Or was that only done automatically for those of us in step-up?

    "This email is to notify you that there has been a change to your notification queue status. You previously signed up to be notified when 10G-P5-3897-KR became available, but due to ongoing product availability, you have been moved to the notification queue for 10G-P5-3897-KL, which features NVIDIA LHR. These cards offer the same gaming performance, but with reduced cryptomining performance (Ethereum). The products are identical in every other way. To learn more about NVIDIA LHR, click here.

    EVGA has taken these steps to increase availability and speed up the queue for gamers looking to purchase a graphics card. Your notification queue position remains the same. However, if you wish to remain in the notification queue for 10G-P5-3897-KR you may "opt out " of this move; you will be once again placed back in the notification queue with your previous sign-up time. Please note that EVGA strongly recommends against opting out, because there is no ETA for availability and no guarantee that your order will be fulfilled for your original part number. Moreover, once you opt out, you may neither request to be placed back in the queue for 10G-P5-3897-KL, nor request an order notification for 10G-P5-3897-KL; you may only be in one queue at a time.

    If you still wish to opt out of the move to 10G-P5-3897-KL, please click here. If you have any questions about this email, please contact EVGA Customer Service prior to taking any action."
