Cinebench benchmark software is based on the popular CINEMA 4D application and allows you to quickly compare graphics and CPU performance across multiple systems.

The Processor test requires your computer to render a photorealistic scene that makes heavy use of multiple algorithms that were specifically designed to test processor cores.

Cinebench was built in order to support more than 60 different processor threads. After the benchmark was run, the application will automatically display the results in points. Of course, higher scores mean faster processors.

The graphics card test uses a 3D car chase created to measure OpenGL performance. The performance varies, based on factors like drivers and GPU processors.

Cinebench R20 Benchmark

CINEBENCH is a famous benchmark and stress testing application that relies on its advanced algorithms to extract every bit of performance out of all modern X86 and X64 CPU cores. Available on both Windows and Mac platforms, the app is today praised as one of the most popular and widely used benchmarking applications. With decades of experience in computer technology space, this benchmarking app has managed to establish itself as one of the most important benchmarking platforms for evaluating the speed and stability of modern CPUs. An app is a valuable tool for enabling more informed purchase decisions, stability testing, optimizing manufacturing, workflow evaluation and much more.

In addition to testing CPU cores (with support from cheapest single-core products to the most advanced 256 thread enterprise CPUs), This software can also be used to test graphics card performance. This is done via a separate test that is focused on one highly detailed 3D scene (featuring more than 1 million polygons, high-resolution textures, and various graphical effects) that is rendered using the cross-platform capable OpenGL API.

Installation and Use

CINEBENCH for macOS comes in a single installation package that can be easily handled by users of all knowledge levels. Simply unpack the ZIP archive, place it anywhere on your local storage and start the app. Upon first boot, you will be presented with the simple user interface that is separated into two main parts – a control area on the left and the much larger rendering canvas on the right.

The main tools of the app are the two “Run” buttons that initiate benchmarking tests for both CPU and GPU. The faster the CPU or GPU scenes are rendered, the better score you will get. Below those buttons, you will see the listing of your detected hardware components, and below a result listing that showcases not only your previous runs but also results from comparable hardware. This way, you can easily compare your results between runs, and compare your results with the scores of other CPUs that are currently sold on the market.

Be aware that the score of your CPU or GPU may be affected if you are running resource-intensive apps or OS services in the background. To ensure the best possible results, it is recommended to restart your Mac before running CINE BENCH. Always install the latest graphics card drivers before attempting to run a GPU benchmark.

Cinebench Benchmark Software Features

  • Accurate and reliable CPU and GPU benchmarks.
  • Stress all available cores of your CPU, no matter if you have 1 CPU thread or 256 of them.
  • Stress-test your Mac to find whether or not it can run stable for prolonged periods of time.
  • Real-time score output and easy way of comparing scores between your runs.
  • Supports all the latest CPU architectures currently in use.
  • The oldest supported CPU architecture on Mac – Core 2 Solo.
  • the computational power needed to render it. The test also requires about 4x the memory. Therefore, R15 and R20 results cannot be compared.
  • It and Cinema 4D R20 incorporate the latest rendering architectures, including the integration of Intel’s Embree raytracing 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 previously.
  • It provides improved benchmark accuracy for current and next-generation CPUs to test if a machine runs stable on a high-CPU load, if the cooling solution of a desktop or notebook is sufficient for longer-running tasks to deliver the full potential of the CPU, and if a machine is able to handle demanding real-life 3D tasks.
  • It does not test GPU performance.
  • It will not launch on unsupported processors. On systems lacking sufficient RAM to load the test scene, a warning will be displayed and the CPU benchmark will not be executed.
  • Background tasks can significantly influence measurement and create diverse results. It’s always a good idea to shut down all running programs and disable any virus checking or disk indexing but it’s impossible to eliminate all background processes. Modern operating systems perform various background tasks that cannot or should not be disabled, even though they could have a minor influence on the results.

Note: Test results can vary slightly because it’s impossible to disable every background task of the operating system. These tasks are one factor that may have a slight influence on measurements. Also, modern computers and graphics cards dynamically adjust clock speeds based on environmental conditions like power and temperature. For instance, processors will reduce clock speed when running too hot to allow for cooling and prevent damage. With many modern processors, the reverse is also true. They are able to overclock themselves when the temperature is low enough. Therefore, a system freshly started in a relatively cool environment will typically run faster than the same system that has been performing benchmarks for several hours in a heated office.
