Graphics28.2% 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)
Boot Drive66.8% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
