Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 87.8%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is very good.
Graphics59.8% 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 Drive121% is an exceptional SSD score. This drive is suitable for heavy workstation use, it will facilitate fast boots, responsive applications and allow for fast transfers of multi-gigabyte files.
