Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 100%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is outstanding.
Graphics37.8% is a below average 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can handle older games but it will struggle to render recent games at resolutions greater than 1080p. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Memory32GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's far more than any current game requires. 32GB will also allow for large file and system caches, virtual machine hosting, software development, video editing and batch multimedia processing.
