    Not surprised that it is ending.  Thank you to EVGA for supporting such an awesome program for so long, and sad to see it go, but it isn't surprising with the trends of programs coming to an end.

    Another program that epitomizes what makes this company great.  Much thanks for the years of support in this regard.

    I think I only ever used step-up once, but a great program regardless. I'm sorry and very sad to see EVGA winding down operations. I had hopes of seeing an EVGA phoenix rise from the ashes with a new GPU partnership with AMD or Intel, but that seems and less and less likely now. The affiliates / associates programs have ended, extended warranties ended, step-up ended, the TEAMEVGA twitch stream is apparently coming to an end and Peter is leaving, and I hear a number of EVGA staff are being let go... so sad when EVGA was hands down the best in the business.
     
    I didn't realize just how big a part of my life EVGA had become, and I know I'm not alone there, so watching the demise is really hurting. I can't imagine how the people inside EVGA for years must be feeling. I understand Andrew Han wanting to retire and spend more time with family, but I wish he could have passed on the baton to someone else rather than taking the company and everyone involved with it down with him - quite the d|ck move imho.  
     
    @EVGATech_LeeM - you've been super helpful over the years and I don't know whether you're staying or leaving for now, but thank you for all the help and support you've given to me and no doubt countless others - definitely an above-and-beyond person. Thanks Lee, from the heart.

    And eVGA takes another step to being "just another company"....sad that the decision to not be in the GPU market was made...bad decision.

    Sounds more like winding down operations imho.

    It was an amazing program for many!

    I was very close on using it once when my queue came up (780 > 780 Ti) but didn't pull the trigger.

    Great program, it's why I suggested buying EVGA GPU to my relative. It's unfortunate he didn't use it, but we still appreciate the build quality across the range of products.

    I used it a few times, it's one of the things that set EVGA apart, but since they don't do GPU's anymore and only two MB's once a generation it doesn't make since to keep it around. Really it is sad to watch them fall apart like they are, yeah I know what they said about other product lines but come on, GPU's is what brought people to their brand and kept people buying their brand ( I have purchased over 100 EVGA products going back to my first GF card, GF2 mx400 ) it not a power supply or keyboard company. Sorry but if the owner wanted out he should have sold the whole company, this slow decline is sad to watch.
