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 always come to the forums for great advise on computer issues, I always I find what I need. The reviews here help me pick the best components for my budget. Reply

    I dare say I've been reading Anandtech since the first days, when sites likes this were far and between.
    Still coming back to it, but admittedly mow as much as back then when I visited on every single day.

    This is such a nice article. My favorite Anand memory is listening to him and Kyle at the hardware workshop at QuakeCon 2003. Anandtech has been a solid provider of clear information for 20. May that quality continue ever onwards. Reply

    I've been here since at least 2003 and funny enough I know someone who went to high school with Anand.

    This site has always been my go to where I can be sure the reviews are generally fair and well done. I do think the quality of the site went down after the Purch purchase, less reviews in general, less roundups with the last one being 7/6/2015 according to the search, less timely reviews on many things, a weak commenting system with basic functionality still missing, but the quality of the individual reviews themselves seems to still be high.

    3dFx, Abit, that brings back memories.
    I bought the Diamond Monster after Anands review, and how great that was coupled with my Matrox Millenium.
    Those were the days.
    Thanks for all the great reviews during the first 20.

    Ah, the Matrox Millennium - a true connoisseur's card ;) These posts make me feel so old (1st mid-tower build was in 1996 I think - before AT even came online)!

    Happy 20th from Australia and thanks for the info I can't get anywhere else y'all.

    Yeah, that Matrox. Then again, nobody would dare admit buying a Matrox Mistake. :) Reply

    Times have changed, a decade has passed for me browsing and reading articles on anandtech. I started reading the website back in 2006 and this has been the one place for the very best on hardware. Every build I made for friends, clients, etc anandtech had a role to play. Thank you and congratulations for all that you have done. Here's to the next 20 years. Reply
