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 73.8%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is very good.
Graphics98% is a very good 3D score, it's the business. This GPU can handle recent 3D games at high resolutions and ultra detail levels.
