Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 88.3%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is very good.
Graphics11.6% 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.
