EVGA has introduced a new benefit for EVGA Elite members that puts them at the front of the line for NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards and other hotly anticipated items. Dubbed Elite Priority Access, the perk grants 24-hour exclusive early access to the queue system on newly launched EVGA products, which will presumably include FTW Gaming and other variants of NVIDIA’s soon-to-be-announced GeForce RTX 3080 Ti graphics card. EVGA customers can become Elite members by registering select products or via community involvement (i.e., earning/spending “E-Points” via EVGA’s Twitch channel or making at least 100 posts on the EVGA forum).

ELITE Priority Access will roll out with the launch the new EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI motherboard later this week and will be available for all future product launches. The queue system for the EVGA Z590 FTW WIFI will open (US only) to the general public on Friday April 30th at 10am PDT with ELITE Members having early access beginning Thursday April 29th at 10am PDT.

  1. Yeah… no. Not falling for this one.

    They aren’t even through the first 24 hours on most of their SKUs.

    This is a joke.

  2. What we dont need, they magically must have the lions share of GPU supplies to not have massive queues.
    If they take on even more customers, supply from them will actually get tougher!

    All they need do for us, take solid steps to reduce the number of shipments going to miners until supply stabilises.
    That would help gamers the most.

  3. I’ve got a better shot of hitting NewEgg’s Product Shuffle, than myself getting involved with this bull!@#t.

    They should honestly just get rid of the forum post qualification, or at least combine it with the registered product requirement.

    It’s just dumb all the way around. You can’t buy any cards right now anyway to get “elite” status that way, so there has to be some other way of getting in. I am honestly surprised they didn’t just charge money for it.

    Sure you can. Try registering any EVGA product you have. The list they have on the site, while large, is not inclusive of everything that will give you Elite status.
