ProcessorWith an average single core score, this CPU can handle browsing the web, email, video playback and the majority of general computing tasks including moderate gaming when coupled with an appropriate GPU. Finally, with a gaming score of 55.4%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics0.77% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
