Cinebench R23 Scores [Updated Results]

CG Director Author Alex Glawionby Alex Glawion   /  Updated 

There’s a newer version of Cinebench Available Here.

Maxon’s Cinebench has become one of the most popular benchmarking software for CPUs. The Benchmark is based on Cinema 4D, a 3D-Digital Content Creation Software package that comes with an in-built render engine – which is also used in this benchmark.

It uses the CPU for Rendering and comes with a bunch of features, like Global Illumination, Subsurface-Scattering, or Micro-Displacement.

The R23 Version of Cinebench supports the AVX instruction set and adds support for Apple’s M1-CPU. As in the previous Cinebench Version (R20), you can bench CPUs with up to 256 Threads.

Remember: Cinebench Scores can’t be compared between major versions, so be sure to check what version of the Benchmark you are running (R15, R20, R23, 2024).

Interesting Picks

Intel’s 12th and 13th generation CPUs made a huge jump in single-core performance compared to their previous generation. The 13900k, 13700k and 12900ks are faster than anything AMD offers in their 5XXX and 7XXX line-up.

Given the fact that Intel’s  power draw is considerably higher, tough, the decision between Intel Core and AMD Ryzen is a tough one.

Another exciting observation that shows how IPC and clock increases can really boost generational performance is AMD’s 7950X which easily outpaces the 2990WX with only half the amount of cores.

What is a good Cinebench R23 Score?

What a good Cinebench R23 Score is, really depends on your workloads. For decent Gaming-Performance, you should make sure you are above 1000 Cinebench R23 Single-Core Points.

For 3D Rendering then again, the higher the Multi-Core Score, the better, but anything above 20k Multi-Core Points will allow you to render complex scenes in no time.

What about the Cinebench GPU Benchmark?

Cinebench used to have an option to test your GPU’s OpenGL capabilities. This feature was discontinued, though, and is not available in Cinebench R23 anymore.

Check out our Benchmarking Guide to find other great Benchmarks for testing your GPU’s performance here.

How many passes does Cinebench R23 do?

Cinebench R23 is set up by default to run as many passes as your PC is capable of within 10 minutes. This is to factor in CPU throttling that occurs during sustained loads due to increased temperatures.

You can either manually cancel a Cinebench R23 run after a single pass by clicking “Stop”, or turn off the minimum test duration of 10 minutes by navigating to “File” > “Advanced Benchmark” and setting the “Minimum Test Duration” to “Off”.

How long does Cinebench R23 take?

It takes 10 Minutes. By default, Cinebench R23 will run as many render passes as your PC can within 10 minutes to calculate a score.

What is the MP Ratio in Cinebench R23?

The MP Ratio designates the ratio of your CPU’s single-core to multi-core score. For example, if your single-core score is 1000 and your multi-core score is 5000, your MP Ratio will be 5. (multi-core-score divided by the single-core score).

This helps in determining how much faster your CPU is when running single-core dependent tasks vs. running fully multi-core-optimized workloads. Optimally, your MP Ratio will be close to the number of cores your CPU has. So a CPU with 16 Cores will have a MP Ratio of or near 16. Usually the MP Ratio is lower than the number of cores, because a CPU can boost (overclock) considerably higher when only one core is utilized (due to thermal throttling).

Is Maxon Cinebench spelled differently in other languages?

No, as far as we know, it’s spelled the same way in every language. We’ve seen some of our readers spell Cinebench as follows, though, but they all mean the same thing: Cinabench, Cinibench, Cine Bench, Cinnebench, Cenebench, and Cinnabench.
