Additionally this processor can handle light workstation, and even some light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 86.2%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is excellent.
Graphics33.3% 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)
