Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 92.5%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is excellent.
Graphics30.8% is a below average 3D score (RTX 2060S = 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)
