I have over 40 days for my step up. I own a 1080ftw. I would like to go to a 1080ti. Only problem is when I go to the drop down it only offers me one choice of a Ti. Every other choice is a lesser card that I now own, which to me makes no sense since it's a "step up" program. It offers me the black SC.
Which is a great choice but I would like to have the thermal sensors. Is there a way I can get the one I want through this program? Money is not the issue. The choices are just not making sense.
Thanks
Don

    Hello dcd58,
     
    Thank you for your interest in the Step-Up program. The cards you can Step-Up to are limited to the reference versions. Currently, the only option for the 1080Ti is the SC Black Edition GAMING, part# 11G-P4-6393-KR. Unfortunately, there are no exceptions to this.

    Is this card , the 1080ti worth the step up? If this is the only option.
    Also. I believe my extended warranty (5 yrs) will transfer to this step up. Correct?

    Yes, the extended warranty does transfer with a Step Up. 
     
    As to if the card is worth it to you, I suggest looking at the performance of that card vs the card you have for the programs you use and see if you get a performance increase that is worth the Step Up price you'll need to pay.

    Hello Mopardart, with the release of the 20 series cards the Step-Up list has been updated and the 1080Ti is no longer an option. The 2080 is the closest replacement option and has the same Step-Up price at 749.99.

    If I was thinking of a step up to a 1080ti from a 1080 I would really consider the 2080 personally. The 1080 is a great card and the 1080ti will give you a bit more performance but it doesn't support ray tracing like the 2080 does.

    Guys if you look below you will see all the cards that are in the set up program so why not have a 1080Ti which is a much faster card ? Could be that the 1080Ti is  better than the RTX2080

    I Don't think the 1080TI is really that much better than the 2080, people with a 1080ti just want to say that, where a lot of benchmarks including linustech found higher FPS in 4k from the 2080, only a couple of fps more, but still more.

    The concern I would have with the 2080 over the 1080 Ti is the decrease in memory from 11GB to 8GB.
