ProcessorWith a brilliant single core score, this CPU is the business: It demolishes everyday tasks such as web browsing, office apps and audio/video playback. 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 91.1%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is outstanding.
Graphics142% is an outstanding 3D score, it's the bee's knees. This GPU can handle almost all 3D games at very high resolutions and ultra detail levels.

OS VersionWindows 10 is the most recent version of Windows, and the best to date in our opinion.
