ProcessorWith a below average single core score, this CPU can handle email, web browsing and audio/video playback but it will struggle to handle modern 3D games or workstation tasks such as video editing. Finally, with a gaming score of 26.3%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is poor.
Graphics67.7% is a good 3D score. This GPU can handle the majority of recent games at high resolutions and ultra detail levels.
Boot Drive31.5% is low SSD score. With a better SSD this system will boot faster, make applications more responsive and reduce IO wait times.
