The software developer Maxon has published Cinebench 2024. The render benchmark appears almost three years after Cinebench R23 – the company is now giving up the R designations. In addition to processors, the benchmark now also compares graphics cards and integrated graphics units. This option was last available with Cinebench R15 from 2013.
Cinebench 2024 uses a new technical framework with Maxon’s render engine Redshift. CPUs and GPUs use it to calculate a room scene with a chair, candles, a lamp and other objects. Behind the image is a three-dimensional scene that is created using ray tracing rays.
According to Maxon, the 2024 scene is six times more difficult to render than the living room in Cinebench R23. In addition, the memory requirement increases by a factor of 3. The benchmark should use modern instructions; the company does not provide further details.
Apple, AMD, Nvidia, Qualcomm
Cinebench 2024 runs on Windows and macOS systems with x86 and ARM processors. New is official support for Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors with Windows on ARM. However, the GPU test only runs on GPUs from AMD (Radeon graphics cards and integrated GPUs), Nvidia (GeForce) and Apple (integrated GPUs in the M processors). With Snapdragon systems, only the CPU performance can be compared.
Due to the more complex rendering scene, CPU runs in Cinebench 2024 require more time. This particularly applies to single-core runs: a Ryzen 7 5800X3D, for example, takes almost 20 minutes if it can only use one CPU core.
Results not comparable with R23
Meanwhile, the results are not comparable to old Cinebench versions. Current desktop processors achieve single-core results of around 100 points, instead of the previous 2000. Eight-core processors achieve multi-core results of around 800 points.
In the case of the GPU test, the results currently fluctuate greatly. A GeForce RTX 4090, for example, should achieve more than 30,000 points. In the case of workstations, Cinebench 2024 also runs on several graphics cards at the same time.
Cinebench 2024 is available to download free of charge for Windows and macOS. The download is 1.3 GB in size.
