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.

This database is a joke… An i5 8400 having higher scores then a i5 8600 or 8600K…


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.

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.

In single core performance I got my i5 9600k OC @5.1ghz at 1.35v to a 521 on cinebench, which is somehow better than all of these.

Bruh moment

how comes the ryzen is stronger in singlecore and multicore but still can maages to win again the i7 7700k in gaming?

Hi there!
8750H with 1x8GB ddr4 ram @2666MHz
425 pts @single_core
2695 pts @multi_core
photo proof:

NOTE: I increased the TDP limits of my cpu with ThrottleStop so that it was not throttled due to power usage. Also the cooling of my laptop is sufficient to maintain the elevated power draw which allowed my cpu to hit 3.9GHz all cores and 4.1GHz single core frequency under load.


your 2700 score is wrong, 2448, should be 3448, well, typo

I’m happy with that,
