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.

Multi Core = 3844
Single Core = 491

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 @ 4.28
ASUS Prime Pro X570
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz @ 3333


Got Multi Core = 3731 and Single Core = 380 with my brave Ryzen 1700 that I use @ 3.725Ghz, Ram @ 3200Mhz CL14, Cinebench R20 installed via Microsoft Store (I didn’t modified anything before starting the test), Windows 10 with last updates.

(Besides, I think you made a mistake on your list about the Ryzen 1700 score, and perhaps some others…)

Multi Core = 7356 (134 points higher than my last posted run of 7222)
Single Core = 509 (9 points higher than previous run of 500)

All @ Stock settings. ABBA update balanced out my overall voltages & helped more of my CPU cores to boost closer to the 4.6Ghz

AMD Ryzen 9 3900X
ASROCK X570 Taichi with ABBA
32GB G.Skill Trident Z Royal DDR4-3600 CAS 16-16-16-36 Timings


Multi Core = 7312
Single Core = 509

All Stock Scores Voltage fixed 1.35V, Powerlimit 140%

Just ran R20 on 1x AMD EPYC 7702P (64C / 128T) and it gave:
CPU — 18864
CPU (Single Core) — 393
MP Ratio — 47.97x


Sorry if I overlooked it, what’s the difference between the RED & BLUE bars in the results?


I got 2718 Multi, and 441 Single,… I7-9750 6-core, 2.6 Ghz,


Single threaded: 475. Multi: 4668
R7 3700x stock (purchased on day one of release)
Mobo: Asus ROG x470-F
Ram: 3600mhz 16-16-16-38 ( very loose timings for Samsung B-die)
Cooler: deepcool captain 120ex (120mm aio)
Temps: not great single thread was fine at <65 multi spiked to 84 ( Mobo is on performance enhancer level 2 all other settings stock)
Psu 750 watt bronze certified
Gpu: gtx1070ti DUKE
Case thermaltake view 71 ( yes I think it's huge and heavy and amazing)

Not as good as others but not too far behind with the ( not up to snuff) cooling I have. Shows just how thermaly limited ryzen 7 series are. Peace, love and rock and roll


Single core was thermaly affected by performance enhancer. With everything on auto single score is now 481. Wow 3000 ryzens are Very Very temperature sensitive, even more so than graphic cards.


My 3700x Single core score is 495 and Multicore score is 4799.
Board-MSI b450 carbon pro ac
Ram- corsair 3000 mhz 16-20-20-38(very loose timing and slow ram)
cooler- Stock
Temp-82 C at multicore


Multi Core = 3826
Single Core = 493

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 @ 4.25
ASUS Prime Pro X570
Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 DRAM 3200MHz @ 3666

Not sure why this Cinebench score is less than my last one which was done at a lower CPU clockspeed. Might have been more BS background processes were running on this test. Still, I’m happy with the particular chip and think I did pretty good in the silicon lottery.
