I stepped up my 980Ti Hybrid(bought in April) last Friday to a 1080 Founder Edition(you can get ACX 3.0 or Reference 1080 as well), process is quite simple(make sure your current card is registered to your EVGA account and you uploaded your invoice from the original seller). I got mine approved within 3 hours and had already shipped my 980Ti to EVGA by the end of the day(you get assigned a RMA number and the shipment goes to the EVGA RMA department).

Total Shipping is about $30 ($20 ish for you to ship to card to EVGA depend on your shipper and where you live, $11.55 for EVGA to ship the 1080 to you). If your 980Ti purchase price was more than the price of 1080 you are getting you don't pay anything else(no tax etc).

For me I think it is worth while, you are trading about 1-2 weeks(shipping to and from, this isn't a cross ship and they have to receive your card before sending the new one) and $30ish in shipping for +25% performance or more.

This is a killer idea and I wish I had known about it before going with MSI. Evga has a little premium compared to other cards but for the extras that come with the card including things like this and no hassle warranty it seems to be worth it.

This is actually very important to me. I currently have no graphics card to drive my 4k monitor. I had a 980 ti which I had been using in conjunction and hoped to use for a while. I quickly returned it when I realized Pascal was on the horizon and my step-up would disappear before release.

Now, I know I won't purchase any EVGA card lower than a classified for OC ability. It's likely EVGA will release it within 90 days, but there is always a risk they won't allow me to step-up to the version I would like. Any suggestions?

I would SLI them too so that further complicates things (Or get a 1080 for main work machine, and a cheaper 1080p/1440p solution card for separate room).

Currently on the queue for a 1080 ACX 3.0. Hopefully it will go through soon.
