I did not receive any emails on release day, nor yesterday, even though I signed up for auto notify for every 3080 model.

    Guessing it's because it's in and out of stock in less then a minute.

    I've gone threw the same with the PS5 pre order at a few sites I signed up for. Never got a notice but still got lucky to be refreshing it when it hit again.

    It’s because the EVGA website is apparently running on servers older than all of the active members of the website. They cannot handle the load of a wet fart, let alone thousands and thousands of people (and probably a few bots, lol) refreshing the webpage constantly.

    EVGA also does not have things partitioned in a way that a webshop crash won’t affect everything else. So if one part goes down the whole thing goes down. Hence the auto notify emails don’t go out because the entire thing tanks.

    For whatever reason EVGA has no desire to actually update their website to actually be up to standards in 2020.

    Yeah I struggled on release day just trying to get on the forums, much less the product website.

    No.  There should be another restock this week; just not today (9/22).  Plus the FTW3 Ultra *should* be releasing this week as well, so basically keep your eyes peeled and fingers ready for F5 bonanza again.

    The basic question as to why no auto notify may just be they got fewer cards than there were folks in front of you for the notify..  I have not seen one card available on any website I check and gotten no auto notifies.  So as far as I can tell, they really aren't even selling them yet..  But I certainly can only guess.  The folks saying they got one may be something other than what it seems..
     
    I think the glitch yesterday may have been the site being updated or repaired to try to stop the failures when attempting to purchase.  Some of the things seen just before the site went down, may also just been a glitch while that was being done..  But again, can only guess, it may have very well been some new cards showed up for sale..

    The notify emails aren't faster than the bots, I guess. I've yet to see any in-stock emails from any site since launch.

    Ah...new guy... I'm on at least the third version of forum sofware since I've been a member here. I've had zero issue accessing the website or forum. I always wonder why folks believe EVGA would be immune from the same issues affecting every other AIB. I just assume these type posts are made for attention. No website maintains surge capacity 24/7 365. This is why it happens to every store front from Amazon to Zotac.

    EVGA should send out the email notifications only, not use social media, when supply is constrained during a launch.  Tweets are just for bots.

    I noticed that lately  the 'auto notify' feature has been removed  from sites such as Best Buy, Newegg, & Nvidia store for the 3080 cards I put in for...
     
    I previously used the feature from all 3 places , but went back after 'paper launch day' and have found them to be missing now . I have no idea why, nor has it been mentioned in the news articles either....?

    Maybe the button should be relabeled to "Auto-Notify... maybe. Will we contact you? Yes but also no."

    EVGA like to make Twitter announcements instead of giving loyal customers a chance at purchasing.

    You can also look at it this way, EVGA doesn't have to make any announcement and just post the restock.  Everyone is lucky to have Jacob and he answers as many questions as possible over there.  Trying to answer in this forum would be a mess.  Everyone will get a chance to buy one eventually and things will normalize (barring unforeseen circumstances).

    The notifications go out in the order they are requested. No idea if they go out to everyone, or if they stop once the stock is deployed for the day.

    Random Associate Code >> GDWZE7QOTF << this is NOT my associate code. I do not have an associate code. Feel free to use it to save a few bucks.

    I received an auto-notify today for the 2070 Super (with the blower shroud), so it's still working.

    Well this is the 30xx forum so I was talking about 30xx notifications    But good to know it's functioning at least.

    even when they do work, those per-site notification subscriptions always seem to slow to actually help you snipe a card anyway

    auto-notify has gotta be one of the least useful features of all time for a big product like this.

    What if I said that one's entire life had been decided by fate? That every single one of your actions, from the minute to the monumental, stemmed not from your own choices, but had already been decided upon? That life being a journey of limitless possibilities was but an illusion, and no matter how fiercely man struggled, he stood at the mercy of a long-established path? The wealthy shall know their riches. The needy shall starve on the streets. The wicked shall be wicked, the righteous just. The beautiful, the hideous, the strong, the frail, the fortunate, the miserable... and finally, the victors and the defeated. What if I said that all such things had been carved into stone eons ago, allowing for no divergence? If so, sinners have nothing to answer for, nor do saints have any true virtue to their name. What if I said that not a single action is carried out of one's own volition, but had been decided long ago? That we are merely adrift in the current of time? Tell me, would yo
