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 59.2%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics98.9% is a very good 3D score, it's the business. This GPU can handle recent 3D games at high resolutions and ultra detail levels.
Boot Drive78.7% is a good SSD score. This drive enables fast boots, responsive applications and ensures minimum system IO wait times.
