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.

    A glance at the comments and I think that I am the oldest reader of Anandtech. If I remember correctly I started reading AT before Anand Shimpi started using "we" instead of "I".

    Congratulations AnandTech for making it to your 20th year. It has been nice, entertaining and informative and balanced as always. Speaking of which I cannot but fault you for an imbalance right in this article. As for the giveaway, you only point out the problems you have with other countries' laws when trying to gift someone with a giveaway. You miss the countries who do not have any laws or regulations that prevent you or make it hard for you to send a gift to. And they are the ones that the the American government prohibits you to send anything to even if it is paid for let alone a gift. You completely missed us. Give us some credit there. Won't you? Or is that forbidden too? :)

    I started with Anandtech from his beginning in 1998 or 99 after a few site crashes and knew of his youth and learned a lot from this place. The forums were very helpful and informative as computers were new in those days to the masses. The forums have waned the last few years but it is up to us to police ourselves better and ignore the trolls, let the mods deal with them. Anand has moved on to new journeys and is missed. I retired this month and am moving to Italy but computers will continue to be a fun hobby and I will be around. Thanks all :) Reply

    "more reviews, more news, and more articles discussing how things work and how the future will be shaped"

    That's music to my ears. The past few years AT has become a bit of AT-light in comparison to 5 years ago... which has made me a new user and fan of PC Perspective, Techspot or ArsTechnica. More philosophical articles that are not purely news, but perspectives on how tech has changed from your perspective as reviewers - and great ones at that - or where you think the market/tech is going, that would be very, very, VERY welcome.
