Intel Core i5-1135G7 (11th Gen) Processor

The 11th Generation Intel Core i5-1135G7 is a typical 2020 mid-range laptop processor. With its 4 computing cores, the i5-1135G7 is more powerful than the dual-core i3-1115G4 from the same 11th Gen Core G-series. The series also includes the quad-core i7-1165G7, which is somewhat faster than the i5-1135G7.

Overall, all three chips can flawlessly handle the daily home and office computing tasks, but the i5 and i7 variants provide extra oomph for heavier duties like video editing. These two are also better in terms of 3D gaming performance. They feature the Intel Iris Xe graphics, which is faster than the Intel UHD G4 of the Core i3. However, all of these graphics processors are in the entry-level category when it comes to gaming.

  6. Question

    kimo aziz

    can i stream a low games comp like : valorant/lol/apex/fortnite/gta5/ect…. on the Intel Core i5-1135G7 cpu with 8 ram and a mx330 gpu with a quality of 60 fps fix for the game and 30fps for the stream it will be quite bad but as a begging ig it will be worth ?

  7. Question


    Is 11th Gen Intel(R) Core i5-1135G7, good for gaming ? [especially GTA 5]

    • Dan

      It’s not a gaming-class processor such as the Core H series. Its Iris Xe integrated graphics processor isn’t gaming-class either (Nvidia GeForce GTX RTX GPUs are). However, you can easily play many popular non-demanding games like League of Legends or Minecraft. If you have at least 8GB RAM, preferably in a dual-channel setup, you can also play some heavier games like GTA 5 but on the lowest detail and resolution settings. But even with these low settings you won’t be able to achieve completely fluid gameplay. It will be rather playable at around only 30 fps or similar.

  8. Question


    I have the HP Intel I5-1135G7 with Intel Iris Xe 80eus 16 GB ram and 512 GB SSD. Will I be able to run Skyrim special edition.
    In addition will it run with mods. Let say I run the game at medium setting but want to add some improved textures etc.

    • Dan

      This is the best video I’ve found about Skyrim SE on the i5-1135G7:

      Based on the video, it runs decently well on low settings and 1080p resolution for an integrated graphics processor, with fps mostly above 30. That’s without fancy textures.

  9. Question


    Is core i5 1135G7 – Tiger lake can play Dota 2 with onboard card?

    • Dan

      Yes, it can for sure. But you won’t be able to run it on high settings and resolutions. I think it’s very playable on low to mid settings and 720p or maybe 1080p resolution.

  10. Question


    I have an HP laptop with an intel core i5 1135G7 processor. In Task Manager, I often see the processor running at below the base speed of 2.4GHz, and even when I run benchmarks and other compute-intensive workloads, the speed rarely goes over 3 or 3.5 GHz. I have never seen the processor run at 4.2GHz. Why is this?

  11. Question


    Can you also tell met if the i5 1135g7 is better for coding or the ryzen 7 5700U

    • Dan

      The i5-1135G7 is excellent for coding, unless it some kind of hardware-intensive coding project including video rendering, graphics rendering and similar. For the usual Java Script, PHP and similar it is excellent. The Ryzen 7 5700 is a bit better performance-wise, but I don’t think you’ll notice a big difference during usual coding.

  12. Question


    I would like to know if the i5 1135g7 is good for programming

    • 07whaleboy

      It’s excellent for coding, unless the project is hardware-intensive.

  13. Question


    Hello, I want to buy a Dell Vostro 3500 laptop with i5-1135G7 processor and what interests me is, how will it perform (light) virtualization tasks? Thanks in advance!

    • Dan

      Hi, I have used virtual machines running Ubuntu on my laptop with older and weaker 8th Gen i5 without issues. Not heavy tasks, but rather light web server tasks. An important thing to keep in mind is that you’ll have to have more than 8GB RAM for normal work if you wan’t to assign for example 4GB to your virtual machine.

  14. Question


    HP has told me, when looking at cpu specs, that the “base clock speed” is the best way to determine how fast the cpu will run. Is this true? or is there anything else to consider? What happens when an icore 5 has higher base clock speeds than an icore 7? which processor is faster in this case?

    • Dan

      Hi, there are multiple things besides the base clock speed that affect performance of a CPU. The maximal clock speed is also important under a heavy CPU load. The number of CPU cores is important too, especially when it comes to running multiple programs or programs that utilize multi-treaded computing a lot. There’s also the cache size, but it isn’t as significant as the clock speeds and number of cores. Another thing is hyper threading or whether a CPU core can run multiple threads at the same time, so with for instance 4 cores it can simulate 8-core computing.

  15. Question


    is HP spectre x360 i5 1135g8 8ram 512 GB SSD suitable for gaming or is it more of an light gaming pc?

    • Dan

      If it relies on the Intel Xe graphics of the i5 processor and doesn’t have any dedicated video card, then it isn’t made for gaming. However, you can play decently smooth some light and old games like Minecraft, League of Legends, Counter Strike, and similar.

  16. Question


    Hi, I’m confused about which one should I choose amd ryzen 5 5500 or i5 1135g7 for heavy spreadsheets, pdf, and other office works. Both have 8gb not upgradable ram and integrated graphics but the intel one is $105.49 more expensive than ryzen.

    • Dan

      Hi, these two offer a very similar performance for the tasks you mentioned and in general. I use an older generation Core i5 for the office tasks and occasionally spreadsheets without a problem and slowdowns. The newer i5-1135g7 as well as the Ryzen 5 5500U are even better. Both choices are excellent for these tasks and I don’t see a good reason for paying additional $100, if everything else is the same.

    • Kalsoom

      I am confuse about i5 1155 m1 and m 2 with a lot difference in prices even . I have to only do data analysis and excel sheet work and word work

  17. Question


    Which of the following processors would be faster for Web Browsing only?
    Intel Core i5-1135G7 or Intel Core i7-1165G7 ?
    Would I notice any difference?

    • AHSTR

      i5 will be enough for web browsing. You don’t need i7.

    • John the Baptist

      You need i9 for web browsing. Every little helps.

    • Mandeep

      Thank You for your response(s). Much appreciated 🙂

    • 07whaleboy

      Even an i3 will work just fine.

  18. Question


    Hi, can the i5 113G7 11th gen run Adobe illustrator and Photoshop smoothly with 8gb ram?

    • Jojo Shelvey

      It will fly it not just run.

  19. Question


    I am a student and will mostly do coding but I am confused weather to buy a laptop with intel i5 11th gen or ryzen 5 4500U,unfortunately both laptops will have soldered memory with 8gb as the highest in any model , or should I go for a different laptop with 16gb or upgradable to 16gb memory.

    • Prince Kunwar

      Ryzen 4500U should have been compared with i5 10th gen not with i5 11th gen, the comparable model is Ryzen 5500U with 6 cores 12 threads, and yes this will give you slightly better multi core performance than intel, however, if you need graphics intel iris Xe graphics is far better than AMD Radeon graphics.

      Now comes the RAM part, if you need the laptop for the next 2 or max 3 years, 8GB will be fine, if you want it for more than that, please opt for 16GB variant or an upgradable one, some upgradable laptops include Acer Aspire 5, HP 14s, HP 15s, MSI modern 14.

    • Utkristh

      Thank you very much good sire.

  20. Question


    Microedge Bezel, 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7, Intel Iris Xe Graphics, 12GB RAM, 2TB SSD, can it run FIFA 21 or PES 21

    • Dan

      12GB RAM and the i5 proccessor are sufficient, but the Iris Xe graphics as the main gaming component is entry level. You can play these games but with lowered graphics settings and resolution. Bezel is pastics around the display and it doesn’t affect performance.

    • Mama Mia

      Yes running is involved in both games because football involves running

  21. Question

    Trina Montalbo

    I have a specific dilemma on choosing between two laptops. Laptop 1 has Intel Core i5-1035G4 with 16GB RAM, while laptop 2 has Intel Core i5-1135G7 with only 8GB RAM. Which of the two would be better to purchase considering that I use on a daily basis the following programs: MS Office, Zoom, coding softwares, Chrome browser with multiple tabs usually, and games like COD/Sims.

    Thank you.

    • Prince Patel

      Go with the laptop with 11th gen processor and later add another 8GB stick if you need 16 GB RAM.

    • Trina Montalbo

      The one with 8GB RAM is not upgradable, that’s why I am torn between which one would be better based on the daily workload I have. The one with 8GB RAM is Asus Vivobook S14 S433 (i5-1135G7) while the one with 16GB RAM is Acer Swift 3 SF313 (i5-1035G4).

    • Tyler

      If you are still here, I would say go for the Asus Vivobook. It will be better because unless you’re running games at same time as Zoom, it will be fine.

    • Mama Mia

      Well you won’t be playing COD on either.

    • Prince Kunwar

      better go with Acer Aspire 5, and even there are 2 or 3 models of Asus VivoBook with similar prices which are upgradable to 20GB, other upgradable laptops include HP 14s, HP 15s, MSI modern 14 Lenovo Ideapad slim

  22. Question

    Rakesh Singh

    Hi, I am planning to purchase Dell Inspiron 14 Laptop. It has 11th Generation Intel ® Core ™ i5-1135G7 Processor (8MB Cache, up to 4.2 GHz) with Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics with shared graphics memory. I am a coder. I usually do programming which needs some software to ne installed as well. So what is your view on this. Is this graphic card with this processor is nice to purchase?

    • Dan

      Hi, I would say the processor is a good performer and optimal for that type of work. However, the Iris Xe built into the processor isn’t a dedicated video card. It’s an entry level graphics processor, suitable only for light gaming. Just make sure your laptop has an SSD drive, not a slow HDD and at least 8GB RAM. 16GB is recommended, especially given the Xe uses a portion of RAM.

    • Rakesh

      Thanks Dan.

    • mama mia

      Yes it’s nice to purchase.

  23. Question


    i want to a buy a laptop for my masters I do mostly programming java and ML I have narrowed down to two laptop one with i5-1135g7 and the other is 10750h , latter is 25% costlier, is the 10750h an overkill for programming vs i5?

    • Dan

      In my opinion, the 10750H is an overkill for programming in java and similar. It also consumes more battery power and produces more heat than the i5-1135G7, without providing noticeable advantages in these tasks. Unless you use virtualization a lot during your work. In that case, the 10750H is a better choice, since virtualization can consume a lot of computing resources.

    • Utkarsh Sharma

      Thanks a lot, no general I am doing full stack development running a couple of ides (intellij) and server for that i think i5 with 16gig should suffice.

  24. Question


    can we run games in this ?

    • Donald the Duck

      Sure, but only light games.

    • DYN4MICc

      Games like minecraft, CSGO, valorant, (anything esports basically) will run flawlessly with 8GB ram

  25. Question


    is the i5 11 th gen going to be more reasonable for regular video editing than a 10th gen i7?

    • Prince Patel

      Well it will depend on the model of processor but i think i7 can easily kill i5 if you are gonna go extreme for video editing and you should think about graphics card too. It will be important if you are gonna edit 4k videos.

  26. Question


    Intel iris xe graphics can run genshin impact game in laps

    • swapnil

      1080p low settings yeah it works

    • Prince Patel

      well yes it can run it but I do recommend getting a dedicated graphics bcz with it you would get a lt better gaming experience.




    • Mada Fusuy

      Unfortunately not. You need AMDs 64-core CPU for that

    • Boomer McBoomface

      Haha! You’re joking, right?

    • DYN4MICc

      YES, you can run minecraft on high settings with a few mods with no lags or framedrops (with atleast 8GB ram)

  28. Question


    Is the i5 11th gen capable of running multiple instances of heavy vsts and professional vocal recording?
    I want to make sure that am i making a wise choice or I should opt for i7 10750H ?
    I don’t want any flaws in the system while doing heavy mixing and mastering , pls suggest

    • Dan

      Hi, I have talked about that in an older comment you can find below. In short, I used an older 8th Gen i5 version with Ableton and heavy vsts (Diva, Roland synths) at the “standard” 44.1 and 48 KHz sample rates without performance problems and with low CPU usage. The 11th Gen versions of the same i5 is even better. I think the Core H i7 series is an overkill for audio production (except if you want faster completion of prolonged intensive operations like audio file exports / conversions). And the H series generally consumes more battery power and runs hotter. But, if you want to make sure you have the best possible performance and use high sample rates like 96 or 192 KHz, the i7 10750H is a better option than the i5-1135G7.

    • MS Tagore

      How clock speed in 1135g7

  29. Question

    Asad sayyad

    is i5 11 gen better than i5 10k gen? beacause i am very impress with 10k gen processor and it also provides 6 cores

    • Dan

      11th Gen is slightly better than 10th Gen. However, the 10th Gen Intel Core i5 H-series is faster than the 11th Gen G series. On the negative side, the H series processors usually consume more power than the G series – 45 Watts vs 15 Watts – and run hotter.

    • Dan

      By the way Asad, i5 has four cores, not six.

    • Prince Patel

      no I think a few come with 6 cores even for i5 model

  30. Question

    Aarón Franco

    Hi, is this processor able to run GTA V seamlessly?

    • Dan

      If you plan to run the game on the processor’s Iris Xe integrated graphics (not a dedicated video card), the game will run seamlessly only on low-to-mid graphics detail settings. Take a look at this video showcasing the GTA 5 on similar i7-1165G7:

    • Tushar

      Hello dan,

      Thanks for letting us know.

    • Blessed

      Guys can the hp intel core i5 8gb ram 11th gen 1135g7 with intel iris xe 1TB hdd able to run gta 5

  31. Question


    Is it possible to buy an i5-1135G7 processor on the open market? I don’t want to buy a new laptop, just want to upgrade the processor in my current one.

    • Dan

      No, unfortunately it isn’t possible to upgrade your processor with the i5-1135G7. The processor comes soldered onto the motherboard and I’m not sure if you can buy it separately. All modern laptops, except maybe some high-performance desktop PC-like models, don’t have upgradeable processors.

    • Puneet

      Can we use the i5 11th generation notebooks for professional music production and recording? If not, please tell an alternative.

    • Dan

      The i5-1135G7 is excellent for music production. I use an old 8th Gen i5 for production in Ableton with heavy vst plugins without any performance issues. The 11th Gen version is even better. Alternatively, you can take a look at the AMD Ryzen 5 U-series with similar performance. There are also high-performance Intel Core H and AMD Ryzen H series, but I think they are overkill for music production and they produce more heat and consume more power.

    • Bon Jovi

      The i5 is not a musical instrument. The i7 might be.

  33. Question

    Ketan Thakur

    I have dell inspirion 3501 4gb ram with i5 1135G7 Xe graphics is it good for gaming

    • Tushar

      I think you just need to upgrade the ram

    • Menstrual Period

      If you have it then why you asking?

    • Prince Patel

      bump up the ram i think you can run a lot of games but at low graphics.

  34. Question

    Is the ram and harddisk upgradable?

    • Dan

      It doesn’t depend on the processor, but on your notebook’s design. Most laptops with the Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor should have upgradeable RAM and storage. Exceptions are laptops with RAM soldered onto the motherboard.

    • MK

      Look Zain Khan or not only you but for everyone who’s reading this comment, the RAM is upgradable if you want but at maximum of 16 gigabytes. And for storage there is 500 gigabytes (sometimes), 1 terabyte and more Hard Drive and there is a 128 to 512 or more gigabytes SSD aka Solid State Drive which you can upgrade If you have that money. But what I recommend is if you want to get a laptop for light and slightly medium gaming or video editing or even for programming you can go for it without a graphics card or get a laptop with a dedicated graphics on it or else I would recommend taking this is burning of money and that is because if you want a laptop for a very little gaming or online classes or work from home as it’s due to the pandemic going on or some internet browsing and movies streaming I would strongly recommend to take 7th or 8th or 9th or even 10th gen i3.
