Been waiting since 11/22/2020. Hopefully it gets to my turn in the next couple weeks or so. Going from a FTW3 Ultra 2070 super that I got from Amazon at mrsp when they restocked it. Completely blanked and could of bought more at that time to step up and give to my brothers and cousin but oh well. Wasn’t thinking was just trying to hurry.

Been checking the email everyday since seeing someone got their step 2 three days ago having started their step 1 on 10/21/20.  I'm on 10/22 ... so close!  Need a drop soon, please!

Once the 4000 series are announced, will EVGA offer people the option to immediately queue up for like a 4070 or 4080 or something? Ahead of all new Step-Ups to those cards? Or will we get dropped to the back of the line or dropped altogether?

The step is up for whatever you chose to step up too. They won't substitute unless maybe they discontinued your card you chose to step to. And than who knows.

Really wish they would put more drops towards the stepup program before the queue.

I also wish they would do the same, dedicate more of their cards to those who have bought their product and registered it.  It's still better than everyone else in the AIBs are doing to be honest and it's one of the reasons why i also highly recommend EVGA to people.  The wait sucks, but atleast there is a step up line to stand in to be honest.  I'm waiting on a 3070 xc3 to a 3080 FTW3 ultra that i want to water block.  I've been in line for that step up from January so my wait is far from over at this point.  I'm just hoping to get that gpu in before Christmas for my son's build.

In 22 days, it will have been a year since my Step 1 confirmation. From the user generated queue lists, it seems my watch is almost over. I wish EVGA would release the order of step-ups and send out a unique identifier so I could track my progress, but I digress.

Let's face it, not that I want to be the pessimist one, more like the realist one.
 
My calculations are simple... These dates are based on posts between pages 98 and 113 of this thread.
 
User A --> Step 1 : October 6th 2020 --> Step 4 : July 6th 2021
User B --> Step 1 : October 8th 2020 --> Step 4 : July 8th 2021
User C --> Step 1 : October 5th 2020 --> Step 4 : July 7th 2021
...
User D --> Step 1 : October 18th 2020 --> Step 4 : September 7th 2021
User E --> Step 1 : October 19th 2020 --> Step 4 : September 8th 2021 
 
My point is : To process orders between October 5th and October 18th 2020, 13 days, it took about two months.

 
Well, personally, I'm on 11/20/2020 09:01:47 (November 20th 2020)... That is 33 days later !!! Really, I don't see the day I will get my GPU.  May be in 6 months, if EVGA still makes these...
 
Too bad cause I really wanted Hyperbeast to reach it's full potential. (English is not my first language, sorry for the weird syntax)

Bought a prebuilt with a 3070 over the summer... learned of this step up program and bought the extended warranty in order to submit the stepup request to a 3080.. i thought i was being patient waiting 4-5 months..just to come here and see the depression of people waiting for over a year.. insanity.. will a 3080 even be cool anymore by the time I make the top of the list -_-

In 16 days, I will have waited for a year.  While I think the step-up program is a great idea, the efficiency of getting cards out is something to be desired.

Anybody else get the email about the queue changes?

Why won't they fulfill the stepup queue instead???

Nothing was mentioned about the stepups.

I really think they should start allocating the bulk of their stock to EVGA.com customers. Unlike people who pick up a video card from Microcenter (99% scalpers, I've been there and stood in line, I'm not exaggerating) or NewEgg, the people getting cards from the website usually come away really happy with the experience, extolling the virtues of EVGA, signing up for extended warranties, posting on forums and social media about how EVGA is great for getting them cards during the great chip shortage crisis, etc etc. You just don't get that kind of customer investment/retention otherwise. I've seen people on reddit who got cards from the queue or Step-Up literally fighting/arguing with people about EVGA cards' reliability, not being objective, just basically saying "customer service is great, EVGA 'til I die". Hell, I bought an extended warranty and there's no way I keep my card longer than 2-3 years. I don't even know why I did it. Talk about brand loyalty.
 
So it makes no sense to me that they're sending so many cards to these stores. Those customers probably won't even remember the company who made the card after a few months, most people just remember what model it is. I'm speaking from experience. I remember having a GTX 570 but for the life of me I couldn't tell you who made it. I can tell you I had a Zotac 670 or something once because it failed on me early and I swore off Zotac after that. 
 
Maybe it's because of deals they have with the stores? Surely they can just send fewer cards there and allocate more for the website?
 
Anyway, I already got a 3080 Ti out of the queue (for me), and a 3070 Ti (for a friend), and I entered that 3070 Ti into Step-Up for a 3080 immediately (this was about 1-2 weeks ago). My friend didn't seem to understand the whole Step-Up program because he couldn't understand that a company would do this. And now he will always recognize EVGA when he sees their name/brand on something.
 
And at least for the Step-Up queue, I hope they just automatically transition us into the next equivalent product if these cards get discontinued or production becomes severely limited due to a new generation coming out.

Not a single step up has gone out for the last two* weeks. I don’t know if they remember we are even here.

It's been 3 weeks according to the list. 9/13 last date someone reported. The list isn't 100 percent accurate of course, but it's close enough.

I figure with the supply issues the priority is probably the regular notify queue, especially if a lot of people stepping up are doing so from a 3000 series card.

I got a 3070 in the newegg shuffle, amazingly lucky that it was EVGA which are always my goto. I submitted for a step up to the 3080 last month for the heck of it, I'm sure it'll never come around for me.

He did say they get sent out “”usually”” weekly. Which, needless to say, hasn’t been holding true for us.

Sold one 1080 Ti right now for $475...  Still waiting on my step up Que... Still have some time but I am gathering the money for it now and packing it away on my paypal card... 

This tho, is by far.. insanity when it comes to the step up process this year... just... ****. Last time I stepped up.. was the 970 FTW2 X2, right when 1080 Ti's came out almost... and I made the step up window by days... I think It took 5 months or so.. this.. is.. Insane... and not seeing movement with the Step Up while people can get them from microcenters are insulting -_-

Currently waiting on RMA for Step 4, seems like the steps after getting approved in 2 just fly by. Here's to the rest of the people in queue, that light at the end of the year long tunnel finally seems near.
