Is this a mistake? That price can't be right. Imagine being 26% over Caseking price:
2.134,39€ vs 1689,75€
 
To summarize:
- I cancelled my good spot in the 3080 queue to score a 3090 XC3 (which is listed in the EU list but is not selectable)
- Now I can get back into the 3080 queue for a terrible spot OR buy a completely overpriced card. Help?

    Do you have VAT? I am in the US so we do not have that but I know some places in Europe it is like 20 percent or something I think.

    The Caseking price includes VAT.
     
    It looks to me like EVGA calculated VAT twice here.
     
    What is their EU Step-up team even doing? They keep messing up.
     
    That price defeats the purpose of stepping up at all. I could just give away my old card for free.

    Anyone going to apply for this Step Up regardless of price? I assume its a bug 100% and they'll change it.

    The difference is that the XC3 will fit in my case and it's cheaper. FTW3 is the better card.

    You should probably talk to EVGA support about this one. Cause that is a huge inflation of price, and that means other people might be getting screwed too. If you contact support, let us know what the answer is cause im interested to hear even though im in the US

    they're joking right ...... I could buy a brand new 3080 which is only 10-15% slower in gaming performance and it would still work out cheaper upgrading from my 2080ti which cost me £1,100.
     
    Also seeing all the news articles online that the 3000 series are plagued with crashing to desktop errors and such. I am not that stupid to pay over the retail price for unstable hardware. I think if this isn't an error I will wait for the mid-generation iteration or get the new high end AMD cards.

    That is 2.66 times the price of the 3080

    Seems like those prices are the actual prices of the said products. if you look at their store 3000 ftw card the variants are insanely expensive.  1,839 exluding VAT for 3090 and 839 excluding vat for the 3080. when you include the VAT the prices are bang on what are in the drop down.

    I think those prices in the shop actually include VAT and the "excluding VAT" is a mistake. Caseking is known to overcharge. They are easily the most expensive shop for PC parts in Germany.  Being that much more expensive for EVGA just does not make sense.

    Wow, my jaw dropped when I saw EVGA's answer to the overpricing of the 3090 vs the 3080 was to raise the price of the 3080.

    Some official clarification on the EU pricing would be nice. I appreciate EVGA are busy but this is important for me, and a lot of others, to know.

    Would love an official statement as well, as I am about to return the card I am stepping up from. The whole step up program is devalued in a way that makes it useless. Guess I will go with anotjer vendor then. I do not waste more than 500€ or basically give away the card I am stepping up from, for free.

    I would also like some clarification from EVGA on this as it affects not just the step ups but also buying outright from the EU store.

    I appreciate our VAT rules can be confusing and moreso since they are ever changing now with the pandemic. But it would be good to know if this is a known issue they are aware of or if this is the actual price because then I can look elsewhere for the card.

    Mods or EVGA staff could you give us some clarification? is this a pricing error or are these the confirmed prices for the step up?

    Normally every manufacturer has a non-binding sales price, see Nividia with the price for 3080 = 699.99 euros or 3090 = 1499.99 euros. It would be interested which prices EVGA has for the respective card. These prices should then be there instead of the corrent moon prices.

    To give some perspective:
     
    I paid 729€ for my 2080S. This initially meant an additional ~80€ for the 3080. With the recent price change, it is now over 300€. This is a complete joke.
     
    -> Bait customers to cancel their 3080 queue for decent price
    -> Offer 3090 for stupid price (Pay 1600€ and give away GPU on top)
    -> Customers are now forced to join a 1 year queue for 300€. ----> Success?
     
    If this doesn't get resolved soon, I am done with this nonsense. Hi Asus.

    I was going to try step-up but I ordered off walmart and I'm not even sure which sellers are supported for step up?

    This has me worried if the price of 833.05 € for my pending 3080 step-up request will go up as well.

    Currently you can no longer reach the step-up page for Germany ... also very strange but maybe they fix the problem ...

    I highlighted the important bits on yellow. This is taken from the official Step up Support page.
