Additionally this processor can handle moderate workstation, and even light server workloads. Finally, with a gaming score of 97.6%, this CPUs suitability for 3D gaming is outstanding.
Graphics58.6% is a reasonable 3D score (GTX 1070 = 100%). This GPU can handle the majority of recent games but it will struggle with resolutions greater than 1080p at ultra detail levels. (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.
