Hi all. New poster here. I'm amongst the masses getting frustrated trying to get an evga card at non scalper prices. I got in queue on october 6th for the variations of the xc3 cards. Not sure where i stand.

My problem is this: I see people posting on fb market, ebay and offerup selling their evga cards they got in the past few weeks from retail locations. At scalper prices of course. I thought evga was going to look at its actual customer base with their queue system first? What is actually going on?

    It would also be great if we could get any update on whether a new wave of cards were released (or a timeline for when they think they will be). 

    Just been twiddling my thumbs for a month here waiting on notifications.

    Is there anyone who has actually gotten an email and been able to order their card that could chime in so we know you're out there?

    Seems like the XC3 cards are going slower than the FTW Ultras. Also, EVGA can't prevent people from scalping their cards.

    Evga can choose to sell directly to consumers in their queue system though. What I'm saying is they are still distributing to retailers like amazon and bestbuy when non scalpers are lined up in their actual queue. It's very frustrating to me.

    I guess it didn't like my link... 

    There's a URL in the "Notification Checkout Process" thread that lets you check.

    Hi all. New poster here. I'm amongst the masses getting frustrated trying to get an evga card at non scalper prices. I got in queue on october 6th for the variations of the xc3 cards. Not sure where i stand.

    My problem is this: I see people posting on fb market, ebay and offerup selling their evga cards they got in the past few weeks from retail locations. At scalper prices of course. I thought evga was going to look at its actual customer base with their queue system first? What is actually going on?



    The Queue system was designed so the system wouldn't completely crash.  When they originally launched, people would barely be able to load the website.  And after an hour of trying and getting to the checkout page and entering their card info, it could say the item is out of stock now.  It was just a mess.  So with the queue system, you don't have thousands of people going through the whole checkout process to see if they can or can't get a card.  You sign up, and when a card is available, you get a notification that one is reserved for you for I believe 8 hours and you can go check out in peace.  The problem is...they switched how the Notify system works.  Initially it was just up for anyone to register and be added to a list.  And then with the HydroCopper and Hybrid cards they only allowed a number of notifications based on the expected launch stock availability.  So even if you wanted one, you can't get on a waiting list for one.  You have to wait until they add more to the system, and then hit notify when the button becomes available.  So the new notify is more like an official reservation.  IF you happen to get on the list when the button pops up, you're pretty much guaranteed to get a card very soon based on the expected launch date.  And you won't be on a list that could go 6 months long like the original 3080/3090 queues.  With some cards, it was a random notify (FTW3 Hybrid and HydroCopper were launched with a random tweet during the middle of the day).  Other cards like the KingPin were announced 2 days in advance.
     
    There are pros and cons to it.  And it's certainly confusing.  But I hope this clarifies how the system works now.

    Need to spamtribute 100 posts for Elite status to be able to get a KingPin because Jacob. My apologies in advance.

    If this industry is like others I have dealt with when comes to distribution they have an obligation to provide those companies with a certain amount of stock we're lucky EVGA can even sell on their site...as frustrating as it is we have to deal with it

    Yeah, they can't just not sell to retailers, plus there are places without the queue system (anything that isn't NA or Europe), as well that would be left out if they didn't give any stock to retailers. I don't know to what degree they could change how they divide the stock they have, or if there is a good reason to do that.

    Wait, then wait for an email.  Then wait to buy it :)
