Cinebench R20 is based on technology of the well-known Digital Content Creation Software, Cinema 4D, but now utilizes the R20 Version’s Render Engine.

This updated rendering Benchmark now supports the AVX command set which will give us more realistic results of how modern Processors behave in multi-threaded workloads such as CPU Rendering.

Cinebench R20 is also great for finding the best CPUs for lightly-threaded workloads such as 3D Modeling and Animation and Video Editing.

Cinebench R20 Scores List

Cinebench R20 benches two CPU performance Values:

  • Multi-Core-Score. This score will tell you how fast the CPU is in multi-processing tasks that utilize all of the available Cores. This includes rendering, encoding and other computational multi-threaded work
  • Single-Core Score. The Cinebench R20 Single Core Score tells you how fast the CPU is when only a single Core is utilized. This is often a good metric for Software and Viewport snapiness and overall active work performance

Download Cinebench R20 here

Download Cinebench R20 Benchmark for your System, it’s free, and test-drive your CPU to be able to compare it with the ones in this list.

After building a new PC anyone should test their new hardware with all kinds of benchmarks, such as Cinebench R20, to see if the hardware performs the way it should.

How to read these Scores

Ok, some more Info about these Cinebench Results: Cinebench Scores are linear.

This means a CPU that scores 2000 Cinebench points will be twice as fast (in Cinema 4D Rendering) as a CPU that scores 1000 Cinebench points.

Up to 256 threads are supported

In Cinebench R20, Maxon has significantly improved the scaling with many threads so that future processors can still be reliably tested: Up to 256 Threads are now supported.

Furthermore, a more complex ray-tracing scene is being used, which, according to the developer, requires eight times as much computing effort and four times as much memory compared to the now well-known scene from Cinebench R15.

Thanks to the photorealistic appearance of the rendered scene, the updated Benchmark should now also give a much better impression of what such programs are used for and what Cinema 4D is capable of in its newest version.

Once again, Cinebench R20 is a benchmark for single-threaded and multi-threaded CPU performance. The OpenGL Benchmark, that was included in Cinebench R15, has now been removed though, as it did not test the underlying OpenGL performance well.

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!



Hey what do you guys recommend I get a 2990wx over 2970wx are the extra cores going to really give the performance I need.
I could save that $200 and get a better you or more ram.

HI Alex.
Are these specs good enough for houdini.
Amd ryzen 9 3900x 12 core 3.8 ghz 24 threads
32 gb ddr4 2666
2x rtx 2080 super


I don’t know about Houdini but I use Blender and that setup is more than adequate. I would recommend you rather get the R9 3950x instead and wait. Or if you the budget get a threadripper. And rather go for a 1 2080 ti, then 2 2080’s. Some applications don’t support SLI.
So you are going to have to disable it for some applications.

I own a 9750H and it have a score from 2450 to 2550


My 9940x scores between 6945-7000 stock so that makes sense, but how is the 3900x scoring 7100 at stock? The AVX frequency Cinebench R20 triggers at stock on the 9940x is 3900hz. What frequency are all cores on the 3900x at for the Cinebench R20 multithread benchmark?

Even if it were a higher frequency it would have to be significantly higher to beat out the two extra cores on the 9940x.

I’m also curious to know what cooler and temps are for the 3900x to get this 7100. I’m at about 71-75c to get close to a 7000 score on a Noctua D15s
