the_Scarlet_oneYou aren’t the only one frustrated, but realize that EVGA has obligations to vendors that they can not break without repercussions.
SKRYKERthe_Scarlet_oneYou aren’t the only one frustrated, but realize that EVGA has obligations to vendors that they can not break without repercussions.I see your point, larger customers are worth more than us here. Got it :)
the_Scarlet_oneEVGA set up the queue program so that they could sell to the customer. Imagine if all of the vendors did the same. Legal obligations don’t get absolved because skryker says he needs a new video card. Contracts won’t be broken just because individuals are inconvenienced. EVGA created the queue to mitigate bots.
SKRYKERI've done my part over years dropping tens of thousands of dollars into EVGA pocket.
DwarfyIsn't the price hike an American thing due to some trade deal with China? I could be mistaken as I'm in the UK, but the prices on the EU store seem to be the same as before.

I could be mistaken as I'm in the UK, but the prices on the EU store seem to be the same as before.I expect the Trump tax tariff to be eliminated shortly. How that will affect prices is unknown. However, we've all seen how gasoline prices rocket up, but never seem to rocket down.
jlem2219I am wondering, if I signed up for the step up for a 3080 FTW on the first day and still haven't got a notify 4 months later, how long will those that signed up weeks after have to wait? Lol. The 4xxx series will be released before they get cards.
zGazersadly too, the "retailers" are in on the sale to miners business also. I drove an hour each direction to a store that promoted having 5 cards available "in store only". Do you think I had a slim chance of getting one. When I arrived at the store the Defacto Outlet webpage still showed 5 cards available. Long gone the store salesman said, nothing in the 30 series available. And after driving an hour home, the webpage still showed 5 cards available.
