The AnandTech 20th Anniversary Giveaway

Now that the commemorating is done, let’s get to the fun part of our 20th anniversary: the giveaway.

For some of our past anniversaries we’ve done hardware giveaways, and for our 20th anniversary I wanted to do the best giveaway yet. It only seemed fitting that as a thank you to the readers that have supported us over the last two decades, that we try to give something back to you.

I set out with a goal to do 20 days of giveaways, one for each year of AnandTech’s existence. To do so, myself, the other editors, and the sales team reached out to our friends at hardware vendors across the globe to line up hardware for our greatest giveaway ever. The results exceeded even my wildest expectations.

31 vendors have donated hardware for the AnandTech 20th anniversary giveaway, smashing even my most optimistic goals. We still haven’t finished adding up the value of all of the prizes, but it’s tens of thousands of dollars. It’s honestly almost more than we could handle, if not for the hard work of the Purch community team in helping out to organize all of this.

So a big thank you goes out to our friends at Intel, AMD, HTC, NVIDIA, Seasonic, ARM, Asus, and more, for providing us with so many prizes to give out to you guys. I knew we had a lot of friends, but it’s only after you ask for free hardware to give to random readers that you realize just how many friends you have. And similarly, how these companies are eager to make a good impression with you.

Starting today and running through May 23rd, we’re doing 20 days of giveaways. We have CPUs, motherboards, phones, tablets, video cards, cases, power supplies, laptops, and even some bona fide swag to give away. Each giveaway is only open for 48 hours, so you’re going to want to check in each and every weekday to enter that day’s giveaway(s). Many will enter, not as many will win, but with the number of prizes we have available the odds may be more in your favor than you think.

However for our many international readers, I need to apologize. We’ve not been able to do international giveaways, and the 20th anniversary giveaway is no different. AnandTech/Purch is too big to do a clandestine giveaway, and that means we need to follow all of the relevant local laws on giveaways. And, as it turns out, there are a lot of countries out there who either dislike giveaways or require that someone in their country wins a giveaway in order for it to be offered there. As a result, we’re only able to open these giveaways to residents of the United States. I’m genuinely sorry we can’t offer anything outside of the United States, but I hope you can understand.

Anyhow, for our first giveaway I thought it was only appropriate that we go full-circle and start back where AnandTech itself started: AMD. So please check out our AT20 Day 1 AMD giveaway for your chance to win a Ryzen 7 1800X, a Ryzen 5 1600X, or one of four Radeon RX 570 video cards. And then check back in tomorrow and the day after that (and the day after that) for future giveaways.

    I have been visiting AnandTech for many years. Probably 15, maybe more. It is part of my daily routine.

    I often refer people to this site, and love to provide links to articles here when I post on other forums.

    In addition to the detailed reviews, I always enjoyed then the writers reveal their personal bias on hardware, and clearly distinguish between a personal preference and a benchmark result. I think it adds to the credibility and also makes it more interesting.

    I also enjoy the behind-the-scenes articles, such as interviews with industry leaders and tours of manufacturing sites. The "technology" explanations are also well-done.

    Great job, and best wishes on your next 20 years.

    I've been wondering when this anniversary thing was gonna come up. Been here since day 1, Anand has educated and informed me into building some 2 dozen PCs, though those days are now long gone. 20 years, gone in a blink.... OMG I'm so old. Reply

    HB Anandtech! Have been a regular reader ever since Anand started analysing early SSDs and dug deeper than anybody else. Early 2009, I guess. Reply

    I am pretty sure that if you wrote declaring that if somebody wins outside of US, they would have to pay all the customs costs and 99% would agree. I've been coming here yor 10+ years and this feels very degrading. Reply

    A Ryzen build would be killer for the home office. Reply
