Fermilab is considering several concepts for a future 2.4~MW upgrade for DUNE/LBNF, featuring linac extensions of the PIP-II linac and the construction of a new rapid-cycling-synchrotron and/or accumulation rings. This talk will summarize the relationship between these scenarios, emphasizing the commonalities and tracing the differences to their original design questions. In addition to a high-level summary of the two 2.4~MW upgrade scenarios, there is a brief discussion of staging, beamline capabilities, subsequent upgrades, and needed R&D.
