PC StatusOverall this PC is performing way above expectations (86th percentile). This means that out of 100 PCs with exactly the same components, 14 performed better. The overall PC percentile is the average of each of its individual components. This PC is likely operated by a technical master!
ProcessorWith a brilliant single core score, this CPU is the business: It demolishes everyday tasks such as web browsing, office apps and audio/video playback. 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 86.1%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is excellent.
Graphics42.7% is a reasonable 3D score (RTX 2070 = 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)
Memory16GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's more than sufficient for nearly all games. 16GB also allows for very large file and system caches, software development and batch photo editing/processing.
OS VersionWindows 10 is the most recent version of Windows, and the best to date in our opinion.
