This link has most recent EVGA Queue Summary (updated weekdays, excluding EVGA holidays). Best of luck!
Original post: Each weekday, excluding EVGA holidays, I post a summary update for the status of the North American queues in the New-EVGAcom-Notification-Checkout-Process thread
. On the eve of the 3080 Ti launch, I thought it would provide some helpful context for the new forum members amongst our ranks (how about the posting traffic over the last 48 hours or so, eh?) who may not have discovered that pinned thread yet.
Going forward, the most recent North American Queue Summary can always be found here
. Additionally, BovineGamer tracks the European Queue Summary here
. Best of luck on your watch! Wednesday, June 2, 2021.
A little over a year ago, my brother and his wife were concerned that they were going to run out of toilet paper. It was sold out at Costco, their local grocery store…everywhere in their local meat space. They turned to Amazon, found a third-party seller offering a full box of toilet paper for an unreasonable sum. They promptly paid the exorbitant amount and they not-so-patiently awaited the arrival of the box (which landed at their door a few days later). It was only when they opened the case that they learned a few things:
- each sheet of paper was almost perfectly translucent, so thin was the material that a Kardashian could have worn it to fail the baby bar exam;
- the texture of paper rivaled extra coarse sandpaper which actually helped with their prep work for repainting the kitchen cabinets (the cabinets came out great by the way); and
- the thickness of the cardboard core comprised approximately 72% of the total size of each roll.
The Gamers Nexus 3080 Ti Review
reminded me of their experience. As a community, we’ve waited so long for the release of the 3080 Ti and put so many expectations on the product that we were bound to be disappointed when the details were finally announced. But unlike the 3080 and the 3090, the 3080 Ti feels like a cynical, supply-constrained product…overpriced, underwhelming and yet certain to sell out. NVIDIA, it seems, is doing their best to recoup some of the margin that they ceded to scalpers over the last nine months…trying to refight their last battle rather than pivoting to the future providing actual
incremental value for those consumers whom have been denied an opportunity to purchase a 30 series gpu or whom have intentionally waited for a robust Titanium iteration...a model worthy of its pedigree.
Into this environment, we -- as a community -- tread...the launch of the 3080 Ti is tomorrow (Thursday) at 6 am PT. Whether you secure an EVGA card at retail, another manufacturer's card, or pursue a position in the 3080 Ti queue as an "EVGA Elite Member", I wish you luck. May your predawn line up outside of your local Best Buy/Microcenter/other retailer bring you success and, for those that prefer/require the digital realm, may your F5 battle to come bring you glorious rewards.
As a final reminder, for those who are joining our program already in progress, with respect to the 3080 Ti:
- The 3080 Ti product pages (links below) for the SKUs for which you can queue tomorrow should go live during the 5 am PT hour on Thursday.
- Elite members
can F5 their way to glory (and the queue) starting at 6 am PT Thursday morning.
- Non-Elite members can F5 their way to the back of the line starting 6 am PT Friday morning.
- Unlike past launches, we are unable to use a "direct link" to the data entry page (aka, the auto-notify page). As a result, the EVGA servers are likely to be hit even harder by the onslaught Thursday morning than on previous post-queue announcement launches. Don't be discouraged if the website falls down...I fully expect it to be up and down several times Thursday morning; keep at it...you will get in the queue.
- The Hybrid and HC models may or may not be available tomorrow for the queue...I have not seen a definitive answer one way or the other.
I understand that F5 fingers get the best night's rest on a diet of fresh s'mores; YMMV. Best of luck tomorrow!
