Finally, with a gaming score of 58.4%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics45.1% is a reasonable 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can handle the majority of recent games but it will struggle with resolutions greater than 1080p at ultra detail levels. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
