Finally, with a gaming score of 38.1%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is below average.
Graphics6.89% is a very low 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can only handle very basic 3D games but it's fine for general computing tasks.
Boot Drive65.7% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
Memory4GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and although it's sufficient for most games, some will benefit from up to 8GB of RAM. 4GB is also enough for modest file and system caches which allow for a responsive system.
