ssmokeyy1Newegg and nvidia both crashed. Not a good idea to give them all stock and not run a store. They need to 2 factor to check out and slow the bots down. Also need to lock ip's
AurummorituriWhat was the phrase? "Toilet Paper Launch". Most of the sites were obviously inundated by bots that got all the cards instantly. I never even saw an "Add to Cart" button or recieved an email. Even NowInStock never showed a card in stock. Absurd Ebay listings popped up less than THREE MINUTES after "launch". Just sad.
EVGATech_DanielMThis is not just limited to the EVGA website with the crashing and massive traffic. EVGA is one of the only manufacturers who tries to sell direct to customers. We understand your frustration and this is not some elaborate scheme to drive up traffic and demand. Our team is trying as hard as we can and we are sorry you are upset. This launch was a very different launch from previous releases.
EVGATech_DanielMI would recommend to be patient until this traffic dies down. Temporary holds are just that. Until something has posted to your account, we cannot confirm considering all of the traffic at this moment. We do appreciate you keeping us updated and once the craze dies down we would be happy to look into it.
dalten22There's something wrong with your billing system EVGA, i've gotten to the place order button several times now but it never does anything, it just spins for a moment then stops or redirects to your feature page.
Athianno manufacturer is going to "beef up" their site for a few weeks just so you can get a card right now.
ccoyne83There is a cost sunk equation to consider. Sites like Amazon already have invested godly amountsof money into server infrastructure etc. to survive mass waves of internet activity. EVGA would need to expend a ton of cash into server capacity it would only need every blue moon and in between those periods would be a waste of money
