CINEBENCH is the free benchmarking tool based on the powerful 3D software CINEMA 4D. Consequently, the results of tests conducted using CINEBENCH 9.5 carry significant weight when analyzing a computerÕs performance in everyday use. Especially a systemÕs CPU and the OpenGL capabilities of its graphics card are put through their paces (even multiprocessor systems with up to 16 dedicated CPUs or processor cores). During the testing procedure, all relevant data is ascertained with which the performance of different computers can subsequently be compared, regardless of operating system.

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've never had a problem with it on any machine, including a macpro3,1.

Never a problem on either PPC or Intel Macs.

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.

Thanks, dude. I filled this in the "No Sh!t" file.

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.

During the testing procedure, all relevant data is ascertained with which the performance of different computers can subsequently be compared, regardless of operating system.

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.
