Win next-gen hardware with Asus and bit-tech

Win next-gen hardware with Asus and bit-tech

Asus wants your feedback on its designs and there's hardware prizes to help your thoughts.

Have we got a competition for you! Asus, bit-tech and Custom PC have teamed up to create a unique competition that just might be the best we’ve ever run. On the 28th of August, we’re hosting the UK leg of the Asus Xtreme Global Summit, one of only four events world-wide. It's a special, preview event where you'll get to go hands on with some of the latest technology, play some games, quiz Asus engineers and then take the kit home. Sounds good... and of course, places are limited.

Over the next four weeks, we'll give away tickets for 20 winners to the event. The winners will get to come to London to spend the day talking to Asus engineers and product managers, playing games on brand new Asus gaming laptops and, even better, getting a hands on preview of Asus’ next-gen motherboards and cutting-edge PC technology that will be released in the run up to Christmas. We’re not allowed to say exactly what these boards are, but if you’ve been reading our motherboard coverage recently you can probably take a pretty good guess as to what it is...

Best of all, the 20 winners all get to walk out of the event with hardware prizes:
  • Five winners get Asus ENGTX275 (GeForce GTX 275) graphics cards
  • Five winners get Asus EAH4890 (ATI Radeon HD 4890) graphics cards
  • Five winners get Asus M4A785 motherboards, based on AMD’s new 785G chipset
  • Five winners get the motherboards based on the mystery new chipset due for launch in September

When: August 28th, 2009, 1pm till 6pm.
Where: The Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Hotel, Central London.
What: An amazing event where you’ll get to meet Asus’ engineers, play the latest games and play with and overclock next-gen Asus motherboards.
Prizes: 20 winners get to attend the event, and each will receive a hardware bundle to take away with them, along with £50 towards travel expenses.
Who can enter: Anyone from the UK and selected European countries (see T&Cs for details), ages 18 and above.

The idea of the event, and the campaign around it is to enable Asus to hear what you think of its current products and get new ideas to help achieve better performance for future products.

So, what do you need to do to win? Well, over the next four weeks, we’ll be putting up a weekly post on the bit-tech blog looking at aspects of Asus’ approach to designing motherboards. Every blog post will have a question attached to it – all you need to do is answer that question and then five lucky people each week will win.

Once you’ve won, we’ll get in touch with details about attending the event. As the competition is all about your views on Asus’ technology, Asus would also like you to write about your time at the event and the products you win in a special section of the bit-tech forums, and your posts will also be reproduced on Asus’ own site. Over the course of a month (15th September - 16th October, 2009), they’d like at least one forum post a week from you, with pictures (four in total, maths fans!) These can cover what the event was like, the questions and ideas it raised, and of course, what the hardware you won is like to use.

Sounds like a lot of work? Well, once you complete the posts, you’ll get a further prize – either the chance to play with Asus motherboard and graphics prototypes, or a trip to Taiwan to see inside Asus’ R&D Department.

Any questions? Drop us a line in the forums, and check out the full Terms and Conditions in the Asus Xtreme Global Summit forum. As the weeks go by, we’ll index the blog posts below.

Asus will also be posting updates and additional info about the competition on the asusxtreme Twitter account, so follow that for the full experience and a chance to win even more prizes.

wow, yet another contest we can't enter.

How is Scandinavia left out of this when hands down we speak better English than anyone else in Europe including a large percentage of the UK ;)

Hmm just looked at Asus' website and it seems they are looking for an Account Manager for the Nordic Regions. I might have to send them my CV , get hired and then correct this overlapse before the 28th of August.

You are mistaken sir, here in Holland we hardly speak Dutch anymore... and even when we do, even the newsreaders are failing even the simplest of grammar checks
