The Futuremark Forums closed down on December 1, 2017 We opened our forums in April 2000 as a place for gamers, overclockers, and system builders to come together and talk about the latest PC hardware. And there was much to talk about. Over the years, the members notched up more than 1.8 million posts. Along the way, our forums helped thousands of people and maybe even changed a few lives. At their peak, the forums were home to more than 2,000 new posts a day. Sadly, what was once a flood slowed to a trickle in later years. With no sign of the trend changing, we closed our forums on December 1, 2017 after 17 years, 7 months, and 12 days online.
