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 73.5%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is very good.
Graphics104% 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.
Boot Drive75.5% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
