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

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.

My i9 9900kf have difirent score than this post up here, my score is 4868 for cpu and 499 for single core. Stock 4.7


Just to add some perspective, here is my PC’s R20 results. CPU is a I7-3770s (4 core, 8 threads) 3.1GHz and is stock standard.
Single Core 299cb
Multi-Core 1361cb

I think in single core it holds up quite well. 🙂


Yeah, I have standard 3770 non K 16g ram and I have basically the same.
Single Core 292
Multi Core 1400


what is a good cpu for c4d and houdini users? i render with gpu so i just need a solid cpu for simulations and view port.


Ryzen 3900x rox crosshair 570 x 64 gb 3200 Dominator Corsair H115 running at 4.22 multi of 7578 prior single core of 490 not bad for a newb


Hi Ryzen 3600 on B350 PC Mate with 16GB 3200 CL16 here, got 3647 multi core and 493 single core, MP ratio 7.4. No “OC” just PBO level 1 +200. Cooler Noctua D14 with PWM Fans.


Did a new run with basically same settings (PBO + Auto OC) but from Ryzen Master: 3688 Multi 504 Single MP Ratio 7.32 Peak temps 66 Deg C and 55 respectively.


i9900k@4,99 Ghz, msi Z390 , 32 Go ram
Single score: 532
Multi core: 5183


Long time Intel user but for my latest build I decided on Ryzen. Took a LOT of fiddling with settings in the bios, battery pulls, and a few late nights but I sorted my performance issues and have a decent OC on my Ryzen 3800X (Asus TUF X570-Plus0.

CB20 scores
Multi core : 5063
Single core : 520


amd 3900x cpu score of 6934 single core score is 509 and a mp score of 13.62 how can a intel zeon x5650cpu with an cpu score of 2705 single core score of 191 beat my score with a mp score of 14.14 dosn’t make sense to me


Hi. I’m running
i7-9700k 3.6GHz with Asetek 550LC AIO
NVIDIA 2070 super
I got 3714 for multicore, and 493 for single-core.

Ryzen 7 3800x with a standard cooler
Crucial 3200MHz Ballistix Sport LT Gray CL16
Single thread = 520 – Speed 4.41 GHz
Multi thread = 5009 – Speed 4.09 GHz
This is a good result when compared to 9900k?
if i buy a good cooler, the results will be better, i need best single thread, if so what would be a good quality and money option?
