I just bought a 1080 ftw last week.  Will I be able to step up to the 1080ti and if possible when will it be available for step up?  Also will purchasers get first dibs over people using the step up program?

    You are assuming nvidia is going to allow AIB cards. They only gave one price like they did with the titan x.

    The titan x pascal is only sold by nvidia. For ever other card launch that they allowed AIB partners to sell them they gave 2 different price points. The founders editions(pay extra edition) and the AIB starting price. They only gave their price like they did with the Titan X.

    I purchased a 1080 Hydro Copper like a week and a half ago with the intentions of hopefully stepping up.  I paid $770, didn't expect the TI to be so cheap.  Anyways, I have never stepped up before but it will appear at some point I'm sure within the next 90 days, surely?

    Are you suggesting only nvidia will be selling this?  That would be unprecedented wouldn't it?

    Yes that is what I'm suggesting. They did it with the Titan X so it wouldn't be the first time. I assume Jacob will let us know what is happening.

    Yes it does actually. If EVGA doesn't sell the 1080ti then there will be no stepup. People are getting way ahead of where we are at. It will be the same as every other stepup if they have it. Hope EVGA puts it up quickly then wait weeks or months to get to the top. They normally have very limited quantities for a while and buyers get first dibs not the stepup.

    Moving on, for card designs NVIDIA is once again going to be working with partners to offer a mix of reference and custom designs. The GTX 1080 Ti will initially be offered in a Founder’s Edition design, while partners are also bringing up their own semi and fully custom designs to be released a bit later.

    Corsair 570x / Intel i7 7700k on Kraken X62/ Gigabyte Z270 Gaming 7 / 16GB GSkill TridentZ RGB 3466Mhz /EVGA Hybrid 1080Ti  / Corsair HX850i PSU / Samsung 500Gb 960 M.2 /

    From the link zombiewarpig provided.
    Moving on, for card designs NVIDIA is once again going to be working with partners to offer a mix of reference and custom designs. The GTX 1080 Ti will initially be offered in a Founder’s Edition design, while partners are also bringing up their own semi and fully custom designs to be released a bit later. Importantly however, unlike the GTX 1080 & GTX 1070, NVIDIA has done away with the Founder’s Edition premium for the GTX 1080 Ti. The MSRP of the card will be the MSRP for both the Founder’s Edition and partners’ custom cards.
    1080ti FTW here we come!

    Well that answers it.
     
    Hopefully it's within the next 70 or so days. I'm not in a super hurry to get it, plus I need to wait for waterblocks to be released too.  I am hoping for the option to step up though, still needa see some benchmarks.

    So historically have the step ups been just a reference card?  I have a 1080 FTW that I just upgraded to the ICX, and stupid me just ordered a second on newegg which newegg for some reason won't let me return.  So will the step up offer a FTW for FTW owners?  Either way it's a no brainer as the ti is worth the 20 bucks over the price of the 1080 ICX's I purchased.

    I believe they pretty much only offer reference cards to step up to (which is kind of weird, you'd think they'd want to p ush their own versions of the card more).

    For the 10xx they offered 2 variants. The Founders edition or gaming and ACX so ICX might be available for this.  Also just decline the shipment when they try to deliver. They will take it back if it is deliverable.

    You will be able to step-up but only to a reference unfortunately.  You lose the WB cost basically and will have to purchase another WB and install it yourself. You lose money and pay a bit more but its part of the risk with grabbing the fancier GPUs.  I also wished they matched your GPU to what you're trading in but oh well.
     
    I'm all in for a GTX 1080 Ti Classified Hydro Copper.  Needs to match my theme'd build and drive my 5760x1080 finally.  I just hope we're not waiting till mid-late summer for the higher up GPUs to be released.  
     
    I can only fathom what I can sell 2 GTX 780 Classifieds Hydros at this time and how long it would take me.

    So if I decide to keep it and just use it towards my step up to match my other card will the apply the full $679 that I paid or if the price drops will I get screwed out of the extra money of the price drop and have to pay an even larger price difference?

    From reading the Step-up information, they use the price on the receipt you submitted minus any rebates you claimed.

    This never happened. The only price point Nvidia gave with the 1080 at launch was the FE price at $699. There's no way EVGA doesn't make their own AIBs for the 1080 Ti.

    Its already shown on nvidia website that partner boards will be out. eEVGA and other companies are still under NDA, so all questions should be held until the NDA lifts, at which time EVGA can answer questions rather than misleading information being passed around.

    As for you statement that "the only price point nvidia gave with the 1080 at launch was the FE price at $699" is 100% incorrect. Nvidia pictures dont lie:



    Notice the founders edition at $699 and the $599 for regular msrp without the FE cooler.

    It happens. I watched the 1080 launch live and tried to keep up with it as it launched. I didnt get to watch any of the 1080ti launch sadly.

    Also in the same wagon. With the difference, that I still wait for my FTW to arrive (returning is not an option considering cross-border S&H). As I got very good price on it decided to pull the trigger. And now this... For now card will be just gathering dust anyway as it is for new build and only will test for 30 seconds if it works at all. 
     
    Worst part is that not all cards are eligible for step-up program. At least not in Europe where EVGA doesn't list FTW series to be 'step-up possible'. If true then I will consider a SLI setup, first time in my life. Considering that "normal" 1080 got serious price cut, which I'm hoping will transfer into pricing in Europe. 
     
    I really feel like an sucker-punched idiot with this nVidia release. Expected Ti to be in the region of 900-1000$ not as 'cheap' as ordinary 1080. WTH?! Darn you green behemoth.

    I got my 1080 FTW this past 11th of February, I already got my gpu registered and uploaded my invoice. So at this point we're waiting on evga to confirm they will allow 1080 step up to the 1080ti?

    OMG .... I bought my 1080FTW since August last Year! That means when EVGA's 1080Ti FTW comes... I am not possible to join the step up program?
