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 55.3%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is above average.
Graphics1.12% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
