With the (alleged) upcoming 11 seris will current 1080 users be able to qualify for the New GPU's under the step up program?

Obviously details can't be release at the moment of this post, but based on previous releases (with 9 and 10 series) can we get any info on it.


Thanks!

    Unfortunately we have no ETA or news for unofficially released products by EVGA at this time. However with that being said, all new products would be subject to the terms and conditions of the program and would need to be within 90 days of the purchase date.

    The 90 day rule is a life saver. When I bought a 670, back in 2013, the 780 came out a week later. I was so thankful I bought EVGA and was able to step-up. I even bought a second EVGA 780, and both of have them have kept me going strong.

    I will be buying into the next series, however.

    Be careful, rumor is nVidia is holding back the next series because of an overstock of the current series. So I would not buy a current series card hoping the next series gets released in time to use EVGA's Step Up.

    Hey....maybe there will be some Amazon Prime deals on a 1080 Ti...I can't quite talk myself into going back to SLI...on the other hand, the rumor of a glut of Pascal GPU's could be a preemptive excuse for those predicting the imminent release of the new GPU models..but nah....that never happens...though you can recycle that one pretty much forever...'market conditions...blah blah blah...'.

    That rumor is based on speculation based on previous rumors. They wouldn’t delay a series for a reason like that.

    So they won’t release the new series until they get rid of overstock but you shouldn’t buy a video card? Really I would say if a new generation comes out it would be probably for Holiday shopping season or around Spring Break next year. With 90 days for step up I would feel pretty confident that if you bought a card in middle of August you would be safe knowing you probably will have the latest generation for six months to come or be able to step up.

    Of course all this is speculation but I would feel it’s a safe bet to say the next generation would be out at least two weeks before Christmas if we see a 2018 release.

    The question is do you need the power of the next series?  Can you foresee your gaming needing more than the capabilities of a 1080Ti?  Do you, or will you run a 144hz 4K monitor before the 1280 is released?
     
    I know, I know... who worries about that word "need".  I certainly don't.  LOL.

    There really is NO demand... for anything past the 1080 Ti from competitors. Other then chest beating... there's no real point for nVidia to drop the 1180 yet. I've had my 2 1080 Ti's for almost a year, and would not go back to a single card.. but surely now I wouldn't go jumping for a 1080 Ti if I was still in the market and waiting. I got both of mine through the Step-Up program and quite pleased with them. Flawless performance, and fact they've lasted this long without anything pressuring them tells me I at least have another 6/8 months of still being best bet on purchases.

    Even if the 1180 releases now.. the price mark up that's rumored is Titan X level is insane. I'll pass.

    I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Until then, all next gen info is hearsay. Informed decisions can’t be made on information that’s not yet grounded in facts or evidence.

    You seem to have an issue comprehending my post for some reason. Did I say not to buy the current series video cards? NO, I said don't buy one expecting to use it on EVGA's Step Up for the next series cards.

    I just bought an EVGA 1070 Ti because my 970 from nearly 4 years ago has been having trouble recently.
     
    It would be nice if the 1100 series is out in time to step up, but if not, I would probably be fine anyways.  I say that because many are speculating 1180 will cost like $900+.  I couldn't bring myself to spend that much a single computer part... So even if I could step up, if my step up would cost me another $400-$500 I wouldn't do it.

    This is my delima.  I want to upgrade to the 1080 however with there being no certain time frame for the new stuff it makes no sense.  My 970 is holding me at 1080p for now.  I plan to upgrade to a 144hz 1440p monitor in the next month hence the reason for a new gpu.  I really dont think ill need more than a 1080 for 1440p but you all know how it feels when something new comes out...you have to have it and find reasons to justify it lol.

    You might want to take a look at these before you plop down any cash on the current series cards.

    Ive seen it.  It is very impressive.  However like others have stated if the cost is $900+ the cost to do the step up would be like 4-500 bucks.  I couldnt really do that.  I am simply waiting since its not really known what the cost will be.  If i go 1440p my 970 will be okay for now......

    I can tell you right now that *even at 1440p, there are some titles that will struggle to maintain 60 FPS with my current set up. Your situation though is entirely different than mine. I would see it as a side grade. It would be a huge upgrade for you. I'm just suggesting you temper your expectations. Because you're going to have trouble hitting your monitor refresh without seriously reducing quality settings.  I personally consider a 1080 Ti entry level 4K.

    I'm hearing $730 - $750 range for the GTX 1180 at launch. All these $1,000 rumor post happened with the 1080 card too.

    well considering a gtx 1080 is 600 for the ftw2 that isnt bad..  I would fork over the difference for an 1180 if that were the case...

    I gotta say: 90 days is quite generous. In 90 days you can run that card the way someone else does in a year, and then they'll still take it back and give you the new better card. And that's not to mention that you'll end up holding on to it longer than 90 days while you wait in the Step-up queue. No one does it better than EVGA.

    I just bought an EVGA 1070 Ti because my 970 from nearly 4 years ago has been having trouble recently.
     
    It would be nice if the 1100 series is out in time to step up, but if not, I would probably be fine anyways.  I say that because many are speculating 1180 will cost like $900+.  I couldn't bring myself to spend that much a single computer part... So even if I could step up, if my step up would cost me another $400-$500 I wouldn't do it.


    Smart man you are, And 90 days is a joke anyway.










    yeah because everybody else does longer stepups right? oh wait only evga has the stepup program

    I've never used the step-up program, but it's a very nice deal for those that want to take advantage of it.

    I mean, do people expect to be able to use the card for as long as they want--just straight up run it into the ground--before they step-up?

    Thirty days would even be a lot to ask for, but EVGA gives us a full 90. That's opposed to zero days, with everyone else.

    What are you going to do, go with Gigabyte instead?

    Yep, if your fall into the 90 day Step Up period and EVGA doesn't have the card in stock at the time you request the Step Up, you get put into a queue and get to use your card until they have them back in stock. So you can basically use the card longer then 90 days. I've used the Step Up before, it worked out very well for me.

    There are a lot of speculations and rumors. However, we've yet to be notified of any changes or upcoming releases. The intent of the step up program is more of a buyers remorse prevention thing. Say you want the top of the line card just because, and you finally get it. A month later, a new card drops and you're no longer the top dog and regret your purchase. EVGA will let you pay the difference to get back to where you want to be. The program is not for everyone and everyone may not like the Step Up. Keep in mind, it's the price you paid for your card minus difference of our MSRP. If you've ran through many discounts and promo codes and get a 1080 Ti for (hypothetically) 400 dollars, and the current MSRP of the 1080 Ti is at 700. The new card's MSRP is 700, you're paying 300 + Shipping and taxes (if applicable). 300 dollars for (x) performance increase may not be worth it. It's still the price you paid for your card minus the difference. There have been some prior confusion in the past where some customers may get confused and buy a card for the intent of stepping up to a better card because they can get the card at a huge discount from an authorized retailer. I say, get a card that you need that will suffice for your specific application if you're in a pinch. Don't purchase a card with the intent to step up to a rumored card.  That's just my two cents. 
     
     
    It's like spending all your money to make your car a track car... and then not taking it to the track. But .... If you have the money, by all means, go ham on the ultimate PC. Do as I say and not as I do, I run two ftw3's to only play PUBG and Need For Speed ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, but am looking into putting my system to good use once I'm settled down!

    When you say "...we've yet to be notified...," do you mean all of EVGA, or just those who are not yet on a need-to-know basis?
