Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 110%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is outstanding.
Graphics8.45% is a very low 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can only handle very basic 3D games but it's fine for general computing tasks.
