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.

  1. Question

    Wayne

    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.

      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.

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

      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.

    Hi
    Is the ram and harddisk upgradable?

      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.

      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.
