ProcessorWith a good single core score, this CPU can easily handle the majority of general computing tasks. 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 60.5%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics11.1% is a very low 3D score (RTX 2060S = 100%). This GPU can only handle very basic 3D games but it's fine for general computing tasks.
Boot Drive37.5% is low SSD score. With a better SSD this system will boot faster, make applications more responsive and reduce IO wait times.
Memory10GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's more than sufficient for nearly all games. 10GB also allows for very large file and system caches, software development and batch photo editing/processing.
OS VersionWindows 10 is the most recent version of Windows, and the best to date in our opinion.
Sub-optimal background CPU (15%). High background CPU reduces benchmark accuracy. How to reduce background CPU.
