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 65.1%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is good.
Graphics70.9% is a good 3D score. This GPU can handle the majority of recent games at high resolutions and ultra detail levels.
