Download Cinebench 20

Cinebench is a real cross-platform test suite that evaluates the hardware functions of your computer. Cinebench Release 20 provides a more accurate measure of Cinema 4D’s ability to take advantage of multiple CPU cores and advanced processor functions available to the average user.

Cinebench R23 is the latest version of the benchmark – see how we use it to test the latest CPUs – but Cinebench R20 is still widely used for testing. We continue to host the older Cinebench R15 for the same reason.

Cinebench has been a popular tool for evaluating hardware performance for over a decade. Cinebench scores are used by system administrators to make purchasing decisions, journalists to review hardware, hardware manufacturers to optimize their latest products, and computer owners to evaluate their individual systems.

Improvements to Cinebench reflect general advances in CPU and rendering technology over the past few years and provide a more accurate measure of Cinema 4D’s ability to take advantage of multiple CPU cores and advanced processor features available to the average user.

Main processor performance (CPU)

The test scenario uses the entire processing power of your system to render a photo-realistic 3D scene (from the viral animation “No Keyframes” by AixSponza). This scene uses different algorithms to load all available processor cores.

In fact, Cinebench can measure systems with up to 256 processor threads. This test scene contains approximately 2,000 objects, which in turn contain more than 300,000 polygons in total, and uses sharp and fuzzy reflections, area lights, shadows, procedural shaders, antialiasing, and much more. The result is shown in points (points). The higher the number, the faster your processor is.

Graphics card performance (OpenGL)

This procedure uses a complex 3D scene depicting a chase (created by renderbaron) that is used to measure the performance of your graphics card in OpenGL mode. The performance depends on several factors, such as: B. the GPU processor on your hardware and the drivers used. The graphics card needs to display a large amount of geometry (nearly 1 million polygons) and textures, as well as a variety of effects such as environments, bump maps, transparency, lighting, and more in order to evaluate performance in various disciplines and give a good average overview about the functions of your graphics hardware. The result is measured in frames per second (fps). The higher the number, the faster your graphics card is.

Who should use Maxon Cinebench?

Anyone who needs to evaluate hardware performance should add Maxon Cinebench to the testing tool’s arsenal. System administrators can use Cinebench to make purchasing decisions. Journalists can use the results when checking the hardware. Hardware manufacturers can use the feedback to optimize their latest products. Every computer owner can evaluate his individual system. In contrast to abstract benchmarks, in which only certain functions of CPUs or GPUs are tested, Cinebench offers a real benchmark that contains the general tasks of a user in CINEMA 4D in order to measure the performance of a system. For those who do a lot of testing, Cinebench also offers a command line option that allows users to run automated testing procedures.

What’s new:

  • Cinebench R20 uses a much larger and more complex test scene than R15 and uses about 8 times the processing power required to render. The test also requires about 4 times the memory. Therefore the results of R15 and R20 cannot be compared.
  • Cinebench R20 and Cinema 4D R20 incorporate the latest rendering architectures, including integration of Intel’s embree ray tracing technology and advanced features on modern CPUs from AMD and Intel that allow users to render the same scene on the same hardware twice as fast as before .
  • Cinebench R20 offers improved benchmark accuracy for CPUs of the current and next generation, in order to test whether a machine runs stably with high CPU utilization, whether the cooling solution of a desktop or notebook is sufficient for longer-running tasks in order to utilize the full potential of the CPUs exploiting the CPU and whether a machine is able to cope with demanding 3D tasks from practice.
  • Cinebench R20 does not test the GPU performance.
  • Cinebench R20 does not start on unsupported processors. On systems that do not have enough RAM to load the test scene, a warning will be displayed and the CPU benchmark will not run.
  • Background tasks can significantly influence the measurement and lead to different results. It is always a good idea to shut down all running programs and disable virus scanning or disk indexing, but eliminating all background processes is impossible. Modern operating systems perform various background tasks that cannot or should not be disabled, although they may have little effect on the results.
  • The test results may vary slightly as not every background task of the operating system can be deactivated. These tasks are a factor that can have little impact on the measurements. In addition, modern computers and graphics cards adapt the clock rates dynamically to environmental conditions such as performance and temperature. For example, processors reduce the clock speed when they run too hot to allow cooling and prevent damage. The opposite is also the case with many modern processors. You can overclock yourself if the temperature is low enough. As a result, a system that was restarted in a relatively cool environment will typically run faster than the same system that has been benchmarking for several hours in a heated office.
