PC StatusOverall this PC is performing way below expectations (12th percentile). This means that out of 100 PCs with exactly the same components, 88 performed better. The overall PC percentile is the average of each of its individual components. Use the charts in the benchmark sections of this report to identify problem areas.
ProcessorWith a good single core score, this CPU can easily handle the majority of general computing tasks. 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 58%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is average.
Graphics25% is a below average 3D score (RTX 2060S = 100%). This GPU can handle older games but it will struggle to render recent games at resolutions greater than 1080p. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Memory18GB is enough RAM to run any version of Windows and it's far more than any current game requires. 18GB will also allow for large file and system caches, virtual machine hosting, software development, video editing and batch multimedia processing.
OS VersionWindows 10 is the most recent version of Windows, and the best to date in our opinion.
Very high background CPU (38%). High background CPU reduces benchmark accuracy. How to reduce background CPU.
