EVGA has moved the goal posts on their queues so many times-----I think they have probably accidentally dropped several people from the spot they originally had. But who knows.
I signed up for a 3070 ti within about 40 minutes of the elite queue opening. That was in June or something. And I've never gotten a notification. And they stopped doing it by the minute you signed up, awhile ago. Its now based on elite status points level, etc.
I signed up within the first hour for the exact same card and had my 3070Ti notification within a month...<shrug>.
I've got two notifies from late October 2020 and have received nothing. The website still says it hasn't sent anything. Seems useless to me. Doesn't help you can only have two active, so i've got about 10 in there, but only the original two are marked as 'active'.
IMO, the system is broke, because I haven't gotten shit and i've been waiting now for more than a year. Me being a long-time EVGA customer with 50+ items registered apparently didn't mean shit either.
There are a lot of nuances to the queue. I would bet that the October 2020 notifies are cards that may never be made (Black, Gaming non-Ultra). I found that out the hard way as my 9/17/20 queue was a 3080 Gaming (non-Ultra) which I never was notified about either. By the time I figured out that they were only going to ship out the Ultra Gaming cards, I was too deep into the 3080 Queue that I'll never get one. I figured it out though and got a 3060, 3070, 3070Ti, and 3080Ti from the queue. Picked up another 3070 from BB. Stepped up the first 3070 to a 3090 and the second to a 3080.
