My experience with the step-up-programm is not so positive! I'm from Germany (where the european headquarter of evga is located) and i entered the step-up-qeue for a 3090 FTW nearly 5 month ago and i didn't received any update since the step-1-mail. The invoice was uploaded directly the day may 3070 arrived in December 2020 but nothing happens, ... but wait, that was wrong! One thing happend: EVGA increased the Step-Up-cost by more then 300 €!!! Yay, so we are not only beeing scalped bei some retailers or private sales person, know we are beeing scalped by the production company himself because they want a much more bigger piece of the cake! Thanks for that ... NOT! We customers here in europe don't see the kind of service as you customers in north america, but we are often pay much higher prices by less customer service.

Ack, sorry you've been having a rough time. The long waits are to be expected, but the sudden massive price increase...ouch. Hopefully that was just due to low supply or something, and it goes back down. Otherwise I might tell them to stuff it if the queue pops for you.

There was a bunch of movement last week in the normal queues, but no one's posted any progress here, so I dunno. The spreadsheet's author has been offline for over a month now, and no one has edit permissions for the list, so it's kinda outdated at this point. I know I'll hit a month of waiting next week, though I imagine some folks are higher than that.

My first step was June 1, and I'm still waiting for the second.

Ugh, I would have thought, based on the movement we saw in June, that you would have hit step 2 by now. This does not give me much hope for my June 24 step 1 status.
 
I think a lot of folks figured out that they would take 210s and flooded the queues. I know a buddy of mine tried to do that shortly after the 4th of July and when he attempted step up he got a message saying that those cards were not eligible for step up.

It seems like for the most part they will accept 210's as long as it's from an authorized dealer with 3 year warranty and I've known of a few people who got their cards this way, but at the same time they also aren't too clear on what exact cards would qualify for step up. The person trying to step up may have bought a card that didn't meet the criteria or I think it could be one of those things, depending on which EVGA rep you talk to.. some will say it qualifies and some will say it doesn't. Ultimately it will come down to the person in charge of the step up process or at least that is my take on it. If anyone can provide any more clarity on this matter it would be great.

I'm on May 22nd as well. I think 12pmish. Maybe next week there will be movement; it's up to May 18 apparently.

That used to be the case but I think they changed their policy on or around 7/1. When my buddy tried to initiate the step up the system would not allow it and told him that the GeForce 200 series is not eligible for step up.

June 22, Still step 1. Definitely seems to have slowed significantly, I'm not expecting much movement for a good while.

It feels kind of bad to just miss out on a month wait time.

I started mine July 1 from a 3080 TI FTW. Looks like I'll be waiting a while.

Especially since the new 3090s being replaced from New World fiasco I expect even longer wait.

I doubt it will have an effect. You usually get a used/refurb card from RMA, not brand new ones.

I wouldn't be so sure since EVGA is doing a "Immediate Replacement" depending on how many units are affected I don't see why they wouldn't tap into their "New" Inventory

Ouch. Well, guess I should have opened mine up after all. I keep thinking "If I open it up and install now, they're gonna email me any day then to let me know the new card is ready, and I kinda don't want to go through that annoyance" but now I'm realizing I should do it anyway just to get the email, heh.

I'm not opening mine, because it's not worth potentially losing a part that I would need to send back.

? what does opening a product have to do with losing a part? like damaging the card?
 
I'm stepping up from 3070ti, originally to 3080 but since the LHR and what not it just happened to sit not so well with me. Figured 24gigs of VRAm will help me on cad work anyways. however I don't understand not using the card just because you are afraid of damaging the card. unless you ave something of 20 series that's about equivalent to whatever you purchased from

I have a 1080 and am stepping up from a 3060. It's not worth installing, and it's definitely not worth the risk that something could go wrong to disqualify the card.

You should sell the 1080 and use the 3060. I did that with my 1080ti. I sold it for $800 lol

Yeah I've been considering not stepping up at all and saving the $600~ difference from my 3080 TI to eventually just buy the 4xxx series. Especially since the only difference between 3080 TI and 3090 is the VRAM and I don't technically need 24GB of VRAM. But then again, the 3080 TI is LHR and I would have a better resale value from the 3090. Not sure, I'll just wait in the queue and see how the market is doing by the time we even get to step up.

Guess this is kinda dead right now. At this rate I will get my 3080ti first which is unexpected.

I feel like keeping a spare is the safe thing to do in this situation where getting a gpu largely a matter of luck.

I got in the queue on 7/7 with a GeForce 210, it's the kr model of the card.

Color me shocked. The friend in question sent me a text on 7/10 about the “not eligible for step up”. He also had the KR model with the 3 year warranty. Very strange but perhaps the cutoff was between those dates?

I’d be curious to hear if anyone has successfully completed step 1 with a 210 after 7/10.
