PCMark 8 support ends January 14, 2021
Benchmarks have a natural lifespan that ends when they no longer provide meaningful results on modern hardware. When old benchmarks are used with new hardware, the results can be skewed or limited in ways that reduce their accuracy and relevance.
Today, we're announcing the end of support for PCMark 8. From January 14, 2021, PCMark 8 will:
No longer be sold on Steam or other app stores.
No longer receive updates.
No longer be guaranteed to work with our online services.
No longer be eligible for customer support.
If you bought PCMark 8 from Steam, you will continue to own it, and you will still be able to run it from your Steam Library.
PCMark 8 was released in 2013 for PCs running Windows 8. Less than 2% of Steam users are still using Windows 8 in 2020. If your PC has Windows 10, you will get more useful results from PCMark 10.
Legacy benchmarks going back to 3DMark99 and PCMark2002 are free to download from the UL Benchmarks website. These unsupported benchmarks are provided for entertainment only with no guarantee of compatibility with current operating systems or hardware. PCMark 8 will be available for free from January 14, 2021.
