Despite its good single core score this processor isn't appropriate for workstation use due to its relatively weak multi-core performance. Finally, with a gaming score of 62.6%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is good.
Graphics3.18% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive32% is low SSD score. With a better SSD this system will boot faster, make applications more responsive and reduce IO wait times.
