ProcessorWith a relatively low single core score, this CPU can handle email, light web browsing and basic audio/video playback, but it will struggle to handle CPU intensive tasks. Finally, with a gaming score of 39.5%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is poor.
Graphics1.04% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive24.7% is an extremely low SSD score, this system will benefit from a faster SSD.
