UserBenchmarks: Game 35%, Desk 33%, Work 27%

CPU: Intel Core i5-7500 - 38.9%

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB - 48.9%

RAM: Adata DDR4 2400 2OZ 2x8GB - 48.8%

MBD: Asus H110M-K

Overall this PC is performing way below expectations (10th percentile). This means that out of 100 PCs with exactly the same components, 90 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.

With a below average single core score, this CPU can handle email, web browsing and audio/video playback but it will struggle to handle modern 3D games or workstation tasks such as video editing. Finally, with a gaming score of 38.9%, this CPU's suitability for 3D gaming is below average
