Cinebench R20 Scores (Updated Results)

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 snappiness and overall active work performance

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.

What am I missing here? I did the Cinebench multicore test on an AMD Ryzen 7 2700x and got a bench score of 9912 for the multicore pass test. Your graph is showing a score in the 3900 range. Could you possibly tell me the reason for the difference in scores? I ran it twice with the same result.


Is it normal that i have 3371 Points with an Intel Core i7 8700K on Stock ? i’ve got a 650w PSU, 32GB Ram with 3000MHz and my Mainboard is the Asus Z390-F


Im looking to invest in a new machine. I’m a Mac guy though and maybe this is more geared towards PC’s? Current machine is a 2012 Mac Pro with 12 cores, 24 threads @ 3.46Ghz running an NVidia GeForce GTX 1080. Cinebench Multi-core score is 3197 and Single core is 224 – I’m just wondering is the 2013 trash can mac an improvement on these figures and what spec would that be? Or should I invest in the new Mac Pro at a base level model and build on it over the next few years as I’m not looking to spend £10k or above. Or is a bespoke machine the way to go, maybe even a PC? I’m using Cinema4D and Vray. Any help much appreciated, from a not very tech savvy guy!


is it good?my ryzen 2600 only have 2400 score?default system,stock cooler,memory 16gb 2666


4016 pts multi core
R5 3600 all core OC 4,4Ghz, MSI MAG B550, Corsair Vengance 3200 cl16, e-sports duo cooler.
Not stable in stress tests but at least I got above 4k in cinebench multicore =P


Xeon E3-1231 v3 @3.40GHz 4c/8t
4x4GB DDR3 1600MHz (9-9-9-24) dual channel

1729 pts @multi_core
364 pts @single_core


5939 on my TR2920x (Threaripper 2920x). 4,2 on all cores.


I just oc’d my 1950x for an all core 4.0ghz and did a 7465 in CB20. My more standard 3.9 ghz oc scores 7327.

I got 3726 when I was getting 3520 with a ryzen 5 3600. currently at 4.2 ghz undervolted to 1.306volts



3950X, cores clocked to 4,35 GHz, 3200 MHz 14 latency RAM, Noctua air cooler

my 3950x / taichi motherboard cinebench r20 score is 9564. I am not overclocking. memory is nothing special, 3200 mhz. interesting that results would vary so much.
