ProcessorWith a relatively low single core score, this CPU can handle email, light web browsing and basic audio/video playback, but it will struggle to handle CPU intensive tasks. Finally, with a gaming score of 23.1%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is poor.
Graphics3.52% is too low to play 3D games or use CAD packages. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive54.1% is a reasonable SSD score. This drive enables fast boots and responsive applications.
