Additionally this processor can handle light workstation, and even some light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 89.6%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is excellent.
Graphics54.6% is a reasonable 3D score (RTX 2060S = 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)
