Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 89.3%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is very good.
Graphics30.7% is a below average 3D score (RTX 2060S = 100%). This GPU can handle older games but it will struggle to render recent games at resolutions greater than 1080p. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive50.3% is a reasonable SSD score. This drive enables fast boots and responsive applications.
