The warranty of a 30 series b-stock card (part number ending in "-RL") is 1 year. I can't justify losing 1 year, 9 months of warranty and paying 98% retail for a refurbished card even if it is "better"... but that is me... 
 
 
I'm in agreement with you here, I am not down to lose a warranty for a "better" card, especially if i'm paying so much for it already.
 
 

 
Based on the step-up terms, EVGA transfer the extended warranty to the "step-up" card. Buy now or later (assuming they let you), and 10 years is going to far cover the life of the card. Another reason I question how the step-up card can be b-stock refurbished. Are they are going to honor up to a 10 year warranty on a card they normally only provide a 1 year warranty? EVGA also doesn't offer extended warranties on b-stock products for a reason. None if it adds up to the current terms of step-up. 
 
Hopefully the part number is incorrect, and it is the "-KL" SKU for step up. I am certainly going to cancel my step up if my 10 year warranty doesn't transfer to the 3080 FTW3.  



this is interesting, when step 2 arrives, am I able to speak with them to confirm "did you guys mean KL or am i actually getting an RL here?" because if that is the fcase, I'm also going to cancel it and just stick with a warranty on my 60ti. It was the only card I was willing to step up to as well, so this is super disappointing.

3070ti ftw ---> 3080 ftw
Just resigned back up after getting my original step 2 a few weeks back and cancelling. Hopefully its as quick as last time. Didn't wanna deal with holiday shipping and the thought of using a gt 710 over the holidays sounded very depressing lol

Could you guys also email EVGA and inquire about the "10G-P5-3897-RL" part number? Again, this is a b-stock refurbished part number and we all have new, retail cards submitting a step-up for what "should" be a new, retail 3080 FTW3 ("10G-P5-3897-KL").
 
@Moonman1969 - do you still have your step 1 email from a few weeks back? Can you confirm the step-up part number was "10G-P5-3897-KL"?
 
Given the state of supply and the suspension of the 3080 FTW3 step-up in the past... I am hoping EVGA is not introducing b-stock cards into the "step-up"

Yes can confirm old step up was for 10G-P5-3897-KL where as the new step up is 10G-P5-3897-RL.. I hope we aren't getting refurbished cards otherwise they have some stuff to change on their website as it lists youd get a new card in a few places.
 
EDIT: i could be wrong but I also think the quoted price difference was $10 less. Sounds like we might get shafted with a one year warranty at the least. Just sent a question through support, ill let you guys know what they say. Now slightly regretting not just getting it over with lol

New part number should be 10G-P5-3897-RL based on the step-up page. 10G-P5-3897-KR is the non-LHR part number which has been discontinued.

Will the 3080 -RL queue be separate from those who entered for a -KR card and run concurrently, or will -RL cards not move until the -KR queue is complete?

The -KR FHR SKU is dead, and was replaced by the -KL LHR SKU. If you were in the queue to buy, they sent out notification that all who had -KR reservations, were moving to the -KL SKU unless they explicitly wanted to stay in the -KR queue (which they said they didn't recommend). Assuming this also was true for anyone in the -KR step-up queue.

FWIW, heard reports from some that spoke to EVGA support that indeed the 10G-P5-3897-RL part number is correct, and b-stock 3080 FTW3 cards with a 3 year warranty will be used for step up. Still waiting on a response to the mail sent to support for confirmation if they also will honor any extended warranty transfer on the stepped up b-stock card. 
 
I guess if they are going to warranty a b-stock card for up to 10 years (doesn't sound like a good deal for EVGA but...) so be it... 
 
UPDATE: EVGA canceled my 3080 -RL step up request and emailed me that the 3080 option was a "programming issue"... so that's that...

The five year warranty is only 2 extra years and the 10 year warranty is 7 extra years + the original 3

It would not make any sense that and extended warranty starts before the original.
Extended means it starts when the original one is over
The Step-up is a new purchase and not a trade-in and the warranty starts a new.

So if your seeing something else I would contact EVGA and see what they say.
And please let us know. I try not to give bad information.


You were right.  My products page had an error and it was reporting as date from original product purchase.  It is fixed now.

EVGA 01G-P3-3736-KR Will an old card like this work for the step up program? I understand I will need to pay a lot to make up the difference.

If you bought a card from Amazon does it have to be shipped and sold By Amazon to qualify? Or does any new card from any Amazon seller count?

From my understanding any NEW EVGA card you can get a 3 year warranty on will qualify for step up. I've seen a couple people on YouTube step up a GT 210 to a 3090.

Pretty sure it has to be an authorized EVGA seller. It's possible the marketplace seller is an authorized seller but its unlikely. I would stick to only sold by Amazon or EVGA direct.

Be very careful of Amazon and Newegg resellers.  Here is the EVGA authorized sellers list in all categories:  https://www.evga.com/products/wheretobuy.aspx.
 
You can only step up from authorized sellers.  Also, if you purchase from a non-listed seller, it is a second-hand purchase.

Depends on where you live and how fast they receive your old gpu.I went from step 2 to step 4 the next day.Took less than a week since I live in Cali.

Is the 3080 8GB going to come back to the step up options? Can anyone tell from past experience how often should I check step up page?
Currently only the new 3080 12Gb cards are there and the MSRP increase is steep. Also no 3060ti option either.

Original 3080 is a 10gb I’ve heard different things but not likely if you ask me

@ Rebe1mind
Timeline so far has been:
12/20/21: Step 1
1/6/22: Step 2
1/12/22: Step 3 (just got it today)
 
It was pretty quick, so I'm guessing maybe luck of the draw with the card I was stepping up to (3080 TI).  I had originally put in for the 3080, but they cancelled it same day and I put back in for the 3080 TI.
