Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 90.6%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is outstanding.
Graphics52.4% 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)
Memory16GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's more than sufficient for nearly all games. 16GB also allows for very large file and system caches, software development and batch photo editing/processing.
