Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 105%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is outstanding.
Graphics29.1% is a below average 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can handle older games but it will struggle to render recent games at resolutions greater than 1080p. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot DriveThe boot partition is located on a mechanical or hybrid drive. Moving the system to an SSD will yield far faster boot times, better system responsiveness and faster application load times.
