Blender Benchmark Results (Updated Scores)

The Open Source Digital Content Creation Software Blender is among the most popular 3D-Modeling, -Animation, -Rendering, Video Editing & Compositing Solutions out there.

It is so popular, that in some of our own Surveys, Blender leads in the currently most used 3D Content Creation Softwares. If you are in the market for a high-performance Workstation, check our guide to building the best Blender PC.

It is no surprise then, that Blender has its own Benchmark, which too is extremely popular and widely used in determining the rendering performance of Processors and Graphics Cards.

The Blender Benchmark can render it’s scenes on either the CPU or multiple GPUs, depending on what you want to test.

The following list shows how CPUs score in the Blender Benchmark when running the “quick benchmark”:

Hi, I’m Alex, a Freelance 3D Generalist, Motion Designer and Compositor.

I’ve built a multitude of Computers, Workstations and Renderfarms and love to optimize them as much as possible.

Feel free to comment and ask for suggestions on your PC-Build or 3D-related Problem, I’ll do my best to help out!



What is considered the “quick benchmark”? I don’t see any options other than to check on or off files to include.

Alex Glawion

Hey LavaJoe,
Sorry about that. Seems like Blender updated their Benchmark after releasing v2.8 of Blender. The Quick Benchmarking ability seems to have been removed. I’ll add new charts with the updated benchmark.



2 Minutes 26 Seconds! First render on new build. AMD 3950X and RTX 2080 TI.

(edit: I am obviously a moron. Working on figuring out exact benchmark methods and will reply below.)


I haven’t located quick benchmark yet but here are the results of all benchmarks run only on the AMD 3950X.

Simon Walker

I get that score with an Intel Quad-Core i5 3470 3.16Ghz with an AMD R5 240 1GB.

Brad Kelly

04:30.49 on an Intel Xeon E5-2697v2 server CPU


13:51:96 on my 1920x threadripper machine. Not great but not bad either!


10:29.48 On a 3900x at 4.25Ghz on all cores at 1.3V Temps maxed at 74C

Brian Gannon from Strongbox


We got 04m 13s on our Strongbox Node Gen3. Temperatures were pegged at 72C throughout.

Thomas Knudsen

i got 1 hour and 29 min on an i3-8109U in an intel NUC.
kind of impressed that it was at 3.58-3.60 Ghz during the entire process.

Alex Glawion

Interesting! Seems to stay nice and cool even though its in an NUC.


AM4 X470 3700X @ 4,2 allcore is round about 11min. i think its a good score?!

Alex Glawion

That’s a really good score! 🙂


X99 5960X cpu only: 23:03
Not too bad for a cpu from 2014


actually : 20:25:54 when setting the CPU @ 4.0Ghz

Alex Glawion

For a 8-core cpu from 2014 that really is a solid result. Sits right in-between a 3600x and a 2700x.
