Cinebench R23 Scores [Updated Results]

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 Displacement.

The R23 Version of Cinebench supports the AVX instruction-set in addition to adding 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).

Interesting Picks

AMD’s 5xxx Series Ryzen CPUs made a huge jump in single-core performance compared to their previous generation. The 5950X, 5900X, 5800X and 5600X are more than 10% faster than anything Intel currently has to offer.

Given the fact that their power draw is also considerably lower, there is no reason not to buy an AMD Ryzen 5xxx Series CPU right now – Apart from price-inflations or low stock that is.

The Cinebench ranking also makes them pull ahead of their competition in Multi-Core Performance, with AMD in the lead across the board in terms of per-core performance.

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.

That’s about it from our side. What Scores did you reach?
