Benchmarking tool based on CINEMA 4D.

Overview

Cinebench leverages the same powerful 3D engine found in the award-winning animation software Cinema 4D Release 20 to accurately evaluate CPU rendering performance capabilities across various systems and platforms.

Cinebench includes render tasks that test the performance of up to 16 multiprocessors on the same computer as well as software-only shading tests and OpenGL shading tests on huge numbers of animated polygons that will push any computer to its limits.

What's new in Cinebench

Version 20.060:
  • Minor string fixes
  • Fixed a bug where identical system is not shown correctly

One odd thing about Cinebench's interface: the buttons in Cinebench's window appear to be grayed out, but they're clickable. The "Info" section that appears in the upper left corner, won't always show accurate info about your Mac. It sometimes gets the "GFX-Board", as it calls it, wrong--for instance, showing an iBook G4's ATI Radeon 9550 as a 9600; and showing OS 10.4.11 as 10.4.9; and doesn't show the name/type of processor, nor its MHz speed, at all. These fields are editable, allowing you to fill them in/correct them, so Cinebench can keep a record of the tests you've done. Also be aware that it can take Cinebench a long time to complete its tests, so be patient while it doesn't appear to be doing much.

Bletch. Doesn't run. Selecting "Preferences" sends it into zombie mode from whence it must be Force Quit. Screen artifacts persist throughout other open windows. Maybe it's just me (MacBookPro9,1; Mac OS X Mojave v10.14.4 (18E226)) but this is pretty useless.

Installing and running fine under OS 10.12.6 in December 2018 but you need to install from the manual download NOT the MacUpdate desktop app or it won't run (reports string error). Once running reported my BTO 12 Core 3GHz X675 tricked up Mac Pro tower fine including the 4GB AMD R9 GPU (a none standard Mac card). In multi-core the 2010 Mac Pro beats up several newer i5 and i7 systems :) #oldskool

MacPro 4.1 running on Snow Leopard: everything went smooth. Nice app and free!

This works well on all of my Macs. It is a great expansion to GeekBench (which only measures processor power). After all, it's free!

This application opens with a string of error messages about support files which cannot be found or opened, then crashes with a kernel access fatal error. Maxon support has not responded.

Computer info: Mac Pro 3,1 dual 2.8 gHz Xeon; 8GB RAM in matched modules; Radeon 5780 and HD2600; dual boot 10.6.8 and 10.7.3. Rock-solid machine - except for this app which won't run. Deleted, redownloaded, and reinstalled - same issues.

I get the same issue. Doesn't matter how many times I reinstall it, or from where (Maxon's own site, via MacUpdate Desktop, etc.). Have thrown away old Maxon preferences files, etc. Nothing fixes it. This problem also occurs in Windows, and I saw some YouTube video about goofy stuff to do in Windows to get this software to work, like putting your display in 256 color mode, etc., but, well, NO. If they can't make software that works properly without doing stupid things to your system, I'll pass.

The application hasn't been updated since 2014. It was / is a free demo. The string error is apparent in OS10.12 in 2018 (Dec) and running the app from terminal or by opening the package (right click app) doesn't work - same error. Haven't found anyone under 10.12 with this running. It does work in El Capitan but that won't support my 4GB GPU so no point installing a 10.11 boot partition to run the software (in my case).

WORKING! IN Sierra 10.12. The issue seems to be the file installed via MacUpdate's desktop app. However, if you go to the manual download link (ignore use desktop app) the resultant DMG presents a more comprehensive folder (not just the bare app). Copy all of this to your applications folder and the app then launches fine. https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/20748/cinebench/download

Cinebench's tests will also make your computer's graphics chip and processor chip very hot, so don't be surprised if you feel the bottom of a portable computer getting significantly hotter during the tests.
