PDXLAN has been around since July 2003, thriving with a tightly-knit community that’s enthusiastic as ever about getting together in the age of everything-is-online. Enthusiasts know the name very well—the event’s become synonymous with fostering a positive gaming environment, kickass competitions for prizes and its generosity in hosting charity events.

 

A few weeks ago, AMD participated in PDXLAN to celebrate its 15 years of LAN parties.

 

Maybe some of you attend LAN parties or continue with your own, or maybe you prefer gaming online with friends. Either way, you can’t deny the comradery of a LAN party—hooking up your computer, gaming together, helping each other out—that’s what old-school gaming was! PDXLAN keeps that spirit very much alive, and shows no signs of stopping any time soon.

 

We provided PDXLAN with Combat Crates, Ryzen CPUs and Radeon RX GPUs as prizes for the numerous tournaments and competitions the event holds for attendees. With prizes like these on the line, you have no idea how creative people can get…

 

Check out what we were up to at the event, from a hilarious toilet paper cosplay for a chance to win a Radeon RX GPU to seeing up-close some impressive AMD builds we spotted at PDXLAN:

 

 

 

 

If you want to get in on the fun, the next PDXLAN event will be November 9 to 12. Having grown through the years, this event is moving to a more spacious venue with up to 800 participants, making it the largest sole BYOC event in the United States.

 

There are a few seats left since the last time I checked, so if you want to check it out, do so quickly!
