Additionally this processor can handle light workstation, and even some light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 84.3%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is very good.
Graphics54.1% 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)
Boot Drive67.6% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
