Intel Core i3-1115G4 (11th Gen) Laptop Processor

The 11th Generation Intel Core i3-1115G4 is a lower-mid-range processor. It’s typically used in the mainstream laptop category, as a cheaper choice than the faster and pricier i5-1135G7 and i7-1165G7 chips from the same 11th Gen Intel Core G-series lineup.

As the main difference, the Core i3-1115G4 has two processor cores, as opposed to four cores in the 11th Gen i5 and i7 counterparts. That’s not a huge difference in routine day-to-day computing tasks of the average laptop user. However, if your laptop oftentimes does heavier lifting like video editing or professional-grade picture editing, the i5 and i7 will show off their specs advantages.

The i3 incorporates the Intel UHD G4 graphics. It can be used for light gaming only and is weaker than the Intel Iris Xe graphics of the i5 and i7.

  6. Question


    I have this proccesor and would like to know if i should buy a new cpu what should i get??

    • Dan

      Laptop processors are not upgradeable. But, that doesn’t matter much if you do only usual home and office computing tasks on your laptop, since the i3-1115G4 is an excellent processor for that. There’s not much difference between it and the faster i5 and i7 variants for the regular day-to-day tasks.

  7. Question


    Hello. Please advice if this specs of lenovo ideapad 3 is good & fast enough for multitasking, coding, office works, movies & browsing?

    • Dan

      The tasks you mentioned aren’t too heavy, so the laptop with its i3 CPU and 8GB RAM will handle them easily, although it isn’t as fast as the pricier i5 or higher variants.

  8. Question

    Joel Mensah

    Please how many hours should I charge Dell my 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-1115G4 @ 3.00GHz 3.00 GHz for the first time before using it?

    • Dan

      I assume your laptop model has a li-ion battery like the most laptop models. The first charge doesn’t matter to a li-ion battery, so you don’t have to keep it on a charger long after the battery is fully charged. By the way, the processor doesn’t matter regarding this question, but rather the battery type. As opposed to li-ion, ni-mah batteries are usually recommended to be fully charged and emptied for the first time and kept on the charger for hours, for instance 8 hours.

    • Mad Mada

      Hi Joel, You should target 5 hours 47 minutes and 10 seconds. You should also use a 100V adapter so that your laptop cooks. It will make it heat resistant for the future.

  10. Question

    Hance Joyce Pugales

    How can I upgrade my cores into 4? I am using 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-1115G4

    • Dan

      Hi, it’s not possible to upgrade the processor. The same applies to almost all laptop processors, since they are soldered onto the motherboards.

    • Mad Mada

      Just fill a syringe with two cores and inject them into the current processor.

  11. Question


    I want to increase the RAM on my 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-1115G4 @ 3.00GHz 3.00 GHz as much as possible. What is the maximum RAM I can upgrade to and what type of RAM should I buy?

    • ryland

      the max amount is 64gbs but keep it around 3200mgz for your speed and 1rx 8 2rx 8 1rx 16 2rx 16 are all compatible
