micfogasSo the posts here showing they received next step that went into the queue on 9/17/20 have me a little on edge.. my email confirmation is timestamped at 4:47pm on 9/17/20. I should add myself to the spreadsheet but if I remember right, there was only one step up option for the 3080 series, which is the 3080 ftw3 ultra, right? I've been checking every day now, even over the weekend 😅 knowing my luck, some bug will skip me. Invoice is properly uploaded so there shouldn't be any issue. The step up community data is both a blessing and a curse.Edit: I just realized my time is pacific and those times were probably converted to eastern. Do I guess it would be 7:47pm edt when I received my step 1 confirmation.
BrauerYou realize there is a worldwide silicon shortage and that all gpu manufacturers are impacted right? EVGA have contractual obligations. I'd love for them to send more cards to this queue and to the notify queues, but nobody can just wave a magic wand and end this shortage.
fraxcatHonestly, at this point, they need to just stop shipping cards to retail partners, and stand by prior customers. If I don't have my 3080 in the next month (stepup time was approx 9 or 10pm on the 18th), this will be my last purchase from EVGA, and I'm not even a longtime customer, just the prior card and hopefully a 3080. If I was 3-4 generations of EVGA cards in, and had to wait this long, I'd be *pissed*. I'm just merely disappointed, but I have zero faith in ever using this specific program ever again, not to mention that had I known things were going to take this long, I probably would've paid for overnight shipping since I've had SIX BLOODY MONTHS by the time my card likely ships to justify the cost. Now, I can't even do that and won't have a video card for who the hell knows how long when it does come up, as my old cards went into computers my kids are having to use for school. It's not like I can just rip them out and put them back in my PC.
csplinterI've read reports on /r/nvidia that they're processing step-1s from 9/19/20!
GonnagamesoonHow does the step up program work exactly or where can I find info on it?
cleavzzHas anyone here had a problem with payment? I tried two different cards with sufficient funds but I am getting this error: Credit card transaction failure. Please try again later on. (Error 481) : Other: credit card transaction failure.

JaosnMy biggest frustration is with the fact it has gotten slower since the price increase. As if they're attempting to do as little as possible until then. I could've gotten a 3080 from bestbuy in this timeframe.. i would know as I almost checked out with one but decided to wait a little longer. We are sticking with EVGA when we could've bought from someone else and quicker. This whole "They don't have to do it" is kinda old especially right now when 2070 supers are going for 750-1k preowned. EVGA could refurbish them and make the difference back + profit I am sure. I also could've gotten a cheaper 3080 model and not the top of the line factory OC'd one with what I am sure is a higher profit margin for them.
