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 57.9%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is average.
Graphics0.45% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive59.2% is a reasonable SSD score. This drive enables fast boots and responsive applications.
