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 64.1%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics15% 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 Drive50.8% is a reasonable SSD score. This drive enables fast boots and responsive applications.
