Additionally this processor can handle very light workstation, and even some very light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 69%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics46.3% is a reasonable 3D score (RTX 2060S = 100%). This GPU can handle the majority of recent games but it will struggle with resolutions greater than 1080p at ultra detail levels. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Memory8GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's sufficient for the vast majority of games. 8GB is also enough for moderate file and system caches which result in a very responsive system.
