Additionally this processor can handle light workstation, and even some light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 77.6%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is good.
Graphics36.2% 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 DriveThe boot partition is located on a mechanical or hybrid drive. Moving the system to an SSD will yield far faster boot times, better system responsiveness and faster application load times.
