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.

    Congratulations Anandtech! I've only been here for about six years but it was the first place I found and it's still the first place I go to for reliable news. I remember reading the Sandy Bridge microarchitecture and I think it was your excellent coverage of technology that led me to join the industry. Here's to another 20 years! Reply

    Thought I might add, y'all should continue serving old historically relevant articles/pieces of tech that you covered! Maybe one article for every year? I love those historical pieces. Reply

    I have a 5 year old desktop that I've been intending to rebuild and upgrade this year, and this looks like a great opportunity. Congratulations on your 20 years. Reply

    Anandtech is still my first stop for tech news and reviews, been reading for at least 10-15 years and haven't noticed a drop in quality at all since Anand left. Thank you all! Reply

    Anand says to follow him on twitter but then he only makes one post a year saying "happy new year". Reply

    Funny how these posts bring everyone out of the woods :) Looks like Anandtech's comment section has Ryzen again! Reply

    Another one that's been coming to this watering hole since the beginning - there is no finer pool around!

    Thank you Ryan, Anand, Ian.. truly special what you've created here.
