What is the meaning of "with easy to understand graphs" in the following sentence,

The Performance tab provides great information on how your computer's hardware is performing with easy to understand graphs . (source: How to use Windows 10 Task Manager to monitor system performance by Mauro Huculak )

Does "with easy to understand graphs" mean "great information is easy to understand graphs" ? Does "with" mean "great information is" ?

    It means "The Performance tab provides great information on how your computer's hardware is performing, using easy to understand graphs". The graphs that are displayed are easy to understand. – user3169 Jun 8 '18 at 1:44

    It means as @user3169 suggests. However, let me add my opinion to it. I prefer this kind of adjective to be hyphenated so it will be easier to understand. I would rather use "with easy-to-understand graphs". Now that it looks like that, it will be less confused. – holydragon Jun 8 '18 at 3:23

The performance tab uses graphs that are easy to understand (that functioning as an adjective phrase, and might be rendered easy-to-understand to avoid confusion) to provide great information.

If you treat "easy to understand" as an adjective, and remove it, the sentence is easier to read. Then put it back in, and see that it modifies graphs.
