Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 92.9%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is excellent.
Graphics58.1% 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)
