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

    Utkristh

    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.

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

    Vinnie

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

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

  3. 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.

      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

  4. 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?

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

  5. Question

    utkarsh

    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?

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

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

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

    Jeremy

    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

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

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

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

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

    • 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:

    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.

    Something wrong with this post? Thanks for letting us know. If you can point us in the right direction...

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • 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.
