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 remember seeing something about this website run by a kid in Apex, NC in the late 1990s (probably in the Raleigh paper). This has been my go to website for keeping up with the latest technology. I still want to see how that home theatre he was building came out!

    Folks, thanks for a great website, and here's to 20 more years!

    I started a local shop back in 1996 back in my hometown. I found Anandtech only a few months after he launched his tech page, and prior to his domain. It was the only source I could find for information on motherboards that was not marketing material I was being sent. Beat the heck out of the trade journals for telling me what I needed to know.

    That shop and the start that Anandtech (and later, Tom's Hardware) gave me the background needed to eventually launch an engineering career at Microsoft (working on the kernel with ACPI) and Amazon (working on the Kindle and now something I can't speak about). What I got from Anand (and Tom in the early days) was not just the knowledge of what was a good board or CPU, but the verbiage needed to speak intelligently in an interview process with a major tech company, and the insight to ask good questions, which is key during a high level interview.

    Thanks for the assistance, and good luck to the current caretakers!

    I have been reading Anandtech for probably 15+ years now and I've always trusted the reviews and info from here. Other sites were great but dipped and others are now springing up but Anandtech is still a trusted source for my info. Reply
