In the mood for some free hardware? Well then you're in luck: our awesome community team has collected a few of AMD’s Ryzen CPUs and put together a giveaway for this weekend. Altogether we’re giving away one each of the six-core Ryzen 5 1600X, the four-core Ryzen 5 1500X, and the four-core Ryzen 3 1300X.

Ryzen 3 1300X 4/4 3.5/3.7 +200 8 MB 65 W

Needing no introduction, AMD’s Ryzen CPUs have reinvigorated the company over the past several months. Offering a massive leap in performance over AMD’s prior generation designs, AMD’s Zen CPU architecture is now much more competitive with Intel’s Core CPU architecture. Coupled with AMD’s aggressive pricing for their latest processors, it has significantly shaken up the desktop CPU landscape and has made 4+ core CPUs the de facto baseline for all but the most budget desktop builds. In short, the market is now awash in great CPU choices, a very welcome change from the half-decade before.

The giveaway is running through December 11th and is open to all US residents. You can find the full details for entering the giveaway over on the CPU section of our forums.

    Nice! I could use a free Ryzen 5 1600X as Christmas is just around the corner. Reply

    Can someone living outside US enter if they have a valid US shipping address? I can really use that 1600x. Reply

    Don't bother, AT is a "local" joint. They don't have the necessary reach to be able to organize any kind of contest abroad. Nor will they ever have seeing how things are going for them. Reply

    If you plan on having it shipped to the US address I wouldn't ask and just apply. :) Reply

    Yet another US centric competition. Does the rest of the world not exist or is it just fake news???? Reply

    Rest assured the rest of the world exists, and I like it very much.

    Unfortunately, their governments exist as well. And each one has its own rules and requirements for running a contest that make it impractical to offer this contest in other regions.

    Again, unlike other websites AT does not have a global presence. And given how things are going it also wouldn't make sense for them to bother. Their audience is dwindling even at home. Reply

    No global presence? Pretty sure I'm reading from the UK here. Of course, we're essentially America's Airstrip One nowadays. Reply

    I would love me some Ryzen for the holidays! Reply
