Can you name something of 20nm ready to be released this year?

When Maxwell is delayed so many months it could be 2015, how would AIB partners generate more sales in 2014 without creating a new SKU?

Well, it's going to happen because 20nm isn't quite ready yet, and won't be ready until the second half of this year. You could easily say the same of AMD and their plethora of rebadges in terms of "milking old tech", not that I think there is anything wrong with that. It's just the state of things in the GPU industry right now, since lithography advancement has slowed in recent years. It is what it is.

99% of users don't need 6GB of VRAM, 3GB is fine for most people. But more choice sounds good to me, for the few who can make use of it.

The ad seems to indicate that one could trade in their 780 or 780 Ti for a 6GB version, but that is clearly prohibited per the step up program guidelines. Are you guys willing to make an exception on this one?

I ask, as a friend bought a pair of 780 Ti's last week, after finally giving in, thinking there weren't going to be 6GB versions released. Though the step up program prohibits that specific step up, it does seem to be intended for his exact situation. He's a bit bummed frown.gif

I would ask on the EVGA forums. They have a ton of reps there who generally will answer such questions.

As I understand it, as long as you are within 90 days - it is allowed. Perhaps they did not update their policy page yet. Their promo page does mention the step up to 6gb cards being an option for within 90 days purchases.

I'm in this same position as well. I have both the 780 and 780ti Superclocked sitting here and thought that they were accepting the same version to step up to the 6GB option of that GPU.

But their policy page states:

Graphics Cards Examples:

GTX 460 → GTX 580: YES (Upgraded GPU)
GTX 460 768MB → GTX 460 1GB: NO (Same GPU)
GTX 570 → GTX 480: NO (Must be GPU upgrade)

Unless of course they decide to change this or if this policy isn't up to date. This deal is basically only good to those with 780ti> cards.

I've never used the step-up program before so maybe someone can help me.

So I went to the EVGA site and put in my info on the screen with the Magician and it shows my info and says I signed up.
When I go into my products in EVGA's website it shows I still have X days left for step-up.

Do I have to input that info in both places?

To put more teeth into this statement, there are two aspects:

1) The higher your resolution, the bigger the performance hit for a given quality of AA.

2) The higher your resolution, the lower the image quality gain for a given quality of AA.

You rapidly hit diminishing returns, with both aspects working against you.

Well, I have a 780 Classified and I'm allowed to downgrade, sidegrade and upgrade to a 780 TI. I don't see why they would not allow you to go from a 780 TI to a 780 TI 6GB.

Go to EVGA's site, login, click on member home and then click on my products. When you are at your product page, click on view details and click on start new step-up. That will allow you to see what your options are.
