Cinebench single Core

Based on cinema 4d the Cinebench measures CPU performance in animation, 3d-modeling, simulation, and rendering. Single-core performance measures the responsiveness of the software under active workloads. When it comes to the Cinebench R20 and R15 single-core benchmarks 11980HK goes toe to toe with its competition. However, if we look at the latest version of cinebench the cinebench r23 benchmark we can see in single-core performance 11980HK the best mobile CPU out there and trades blows with desktop level CPUs.

Cinebench Multi-Core

Based on cinema 4d the Cinebench R20 measures CPU performance in animation, 3d-modeling, simulation, and rendering. Multi-core score measures the CPU’s ability to handle tasks such as rendering, encoding, and other workloads that benefit from better multi-threaded performance. When it comes to the Cinebench R20 and R15 muli-core benchmarks 11980HK goes toe to toe with its competition with it losing to AMD 5900Hx with the slightest of margins. However, if we look at the latest version of cinebench the cinebench r23 benchmark we can see in multi-core performance 11980HK the best mobile CPU out there and trades blows with desktop level CPUs.
