Despite its good single core score this processor isn't appropriate for workstation use due to its relatively weak multi-core performance. Finally, with a gaming score of 70.6%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is very good.
Graphics71.8% is a good 3D score. This GPU can handle the majority of recent games at high resolutions and ultra detail levels.
Boot Drive60.9% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
