Additionally this processor can handle typical workstation, and even moderate server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 109%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is outstanding.
Graphics52.7% 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 Drive89.9% is a very good SSD score. This drive is suitable for moderate workstation use, it will facilitate fast boots, responsive applications and ensure minimum IO wait times.
