CINEBENCH is a well-known benchmarking and stress testing tool that uses innovative algorithms to extract the maximum performance from all modern X86 and X64 CPU cores. Available on both Windows and Mac platforms, the utility is now regarded as one of the most popular and commonly used benchmarking applications.

CINEBENCH for Windows PC is a strong benchmarking tool created by MAXON Computer. It is intended to assess the performance of your computer's CPU and GPU through a series of demanding tests. Originally designed to evaluate the capabilities of MAXON's Cinema 4D program, it has now become a popular tool for both pros and fans to check their system's processing power. 

With decades of expertise in the computer technology industry, this benchmarking program has established itself as one of the most essential platforms for assessing the performance and stability of modern CPUs. MAXON CINEBENCH is an invaluable tool for making better informed purchasing decisions, conducting stability testing, optimizing manufacturing, evaluating workflows, and much more.

It may be used to test graphics card performance as well as CPU cores (with support ranging from the cheapest single-core products to the most powerful 256 thread corporate CPUs). This is accomplished using a separate test that focuses on a single highly detailed 3D scene (with over 1 million polygons, high-resolution textures, and a variety of graphical effects) generated with the cross-platform OpenGL API.

Key Features

  • CPU and GPU Benchmarking It includes distinct tests to evaluate CPU and GPU performance. The CPU test assesses single- and multi-core processing capability, and the GPU test analyzes graphics rendering speed. 
  • Realistic 3D rendering  The app stress tests your hardware by mimicking scenarios common in professional 3D rendering and animation work. 
  • Cross-platform compatibility  The software is accessible for both Windows and MacOS, making it a versatile tool for benchmarking across many operating systems. 
  • Reporting and Comparison  After performing the benchmark tests, it creates thorough reports with CPU and GPU performance scores. Users can compare their results to a database of other systems to evaluate how their hardware performs. 
  • Stress Testing  It can test your system's limits, allowing you to uncover potential stability issues by submitting it to persistent high-load scenarios.

What`s New

It uses Redshift, Cinema 4D's default rendering engine, to assess the computer's CPU and GPU performance. Cinebench 2024 is intended to support a wide range of hardware configurations; while it seamlessly supports x86/64 architecture (Intel/AMD) on Windows and macOS, it also expands to Apple Silicon on macOS and Arm64 CPUs on Windows, ensuring compatibility with the most recent advancements in hardware technology. 

Furthermore, Cinebench 2024 simplifies the benchmarking process by using a single scene file for CPU and GPU testing. Best of all, it's free!

Installation and Use

The program is delivered in a single installation package that may be readily handled by users of various skill levels. Simply unpack the ZIP package, save it somewhere on your local storage, and launch the software. Upon initial boot, you will be provided with a simple user interface divided into two primary sections: a control area on the left and a considerably bigger rendering canvas on the right. 

The app's main tools are the two "Run" buttons, which launch benchmarking tests for both CPU and GPU. The faster the CPU or GPU scenes are rendered, the higher your score will be. Below those buttons, you'll notice a list of your recognized hardware components, as well as a result listing that includes not only your prior runs but also results from similar devices. This allows you to simply compare your results between runs and with the scores of other CPUs currently on the market. 

Keep in mind that running resource-intensive apps or OS services in the background may have an impact on your CPU or GPU score. To achieve the best potential results, restart your computer before launching CINEBENCH. Always install the most recent graphics card drivers before doing a GPU benchmark.


  • Benchmarks for CPU and GPU are accurate and dependable. 
  • Stress all of your CPU's available cores, whether you have one or 256 threads. 
  • Stress test your PC to see if it can run steady for extended periods of time. 
  • Real-time score output and a simple way to compare scores between runs. 
  • Supports all of today's CPU architectures. 
  • The PC's oldest supported CPU architectures are Intel Pentium 4 and Athlon 64. 
  • Mac's oldest supported CPU architecture is Core 2 Solo. 
  • Available for both PC and Mac.

How to Use

  • Download and install the software via the official website or Filesalad. 
  • Launch the app. 
  • Choose either the CPU or GPU test, depending on what you want to benchmark. 
  • Click the "Run" button to start the benchmarking procedure. 
  • The software will run a series of tests and, after completed, will present the results in a report.

System Requirements

  • Operating System: Windows 7, 8, 10, or 11. 
  • CPU: 2 GHz or faster. 
  • RAM: 4GB or greater. 
  • Graphics Card: OpenGL-compatible graphics card with 512MB RAM


  • Free to use. 
  • Cross-platform compatibility. 
  • Realistic 3D rendering testing. 
  • Detailed benchmark reports. 
  • Stress-testing capabilities


  • The product is now integrated into the Maxon One App and only supports CPU and GPU benchmarks. 
  • Not as extensive as some options for system-wide performance assessment.


CINEBENCH is a useful program for evaluating your computer's CPU and GPU performance. Its user-friendly design, realistic 3D rendering tests, and ability to compare results with other users make it a popular choice among experts and fans. 

While it does not give as broad system-wide benchmarking as some competitors, it excels at what it was designed to do, making it an essential tool for anyone trying to optimise their hardware or examine their system's capabilities. Best of all, it is free, making it open to a diverse spectrum of consumers.
