Cinebench 2024 - Single Core

The Cinebench 2024 benchmark is based on the Redshift rendering engine, which is also used in the 3D program Cinema 4D from the manufacturer Maxon. The benchmark runs are each 10 minutes long to test whether the processor is limited by its heat generation. Cinebench 2024 runs on Windows (x86-64 and arm) and macOS. He can also test the new Apple M processors.

FP32 Performance (Single-precision TFLOPS) - FP32 (TFLOPS)

The theoretical computing power of the graphics card with single precision (32 bit) in TFLOPS. TFLOPS indicates how many trillion FP32 floating point operations the graphics card (GPU) can perform per second. The larger this number, the faster the graphics card is.
