Additionally this processor can handle very light workstation, and even some very light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 82%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is excellent.
Graphics49.1% is a reasonable 3D score (RTX 2070 = 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)
Boot Drive212% is an exceptional SSD score. This drive is suitable for heavy workstation use, it will facilitate fast boots, responsive applications and allow for fast transfers of multi-gigabyte files.
