Description

 11th Gen Intel Core i3 1115G4 | Review

11th Gen Intel Core i3-1115G4The i3 1115G4 by Intel is a part of its 11th Generation Tiger lake lineup and can be found in budget and mid-range thin light laptops. It is powered by 2 willow cove cores with 4 threads with a base clock of 3GHz and 4.1GHz. The i3 1115G4 is based on the 10+ nanometers architecture. One of the headline features of the 11th Gen Intel Core 1115G4 is the Intel Xe Graphics G4 48EUs. The other features include AI hardware acceleration, Thunderbolt 4, and WiFi 6.

In terms of performance, the chip is made to compete with the Ryzen 4000 series CPUs. That being said the chip still remains a dual-core chip and it sees significant performance improvement over the previous generation. The 11th Gen Intel Core i3 1115G4 see improvement in the base clock, boost clock, L3 Cache, and IPC. Intel claims double digits improvement in IPC when comparing the 11th gen Willow cove cores and 10th gen Sunny cove cores.

Integrated GPU

Intel Xe Graphics G4 48EUs

Launched in August of 2020 Intel Iris Graphics Xe G4 48EUs with 48 EUs (execution units) as a part of its Tiger Lake U integrated graphics solution and can be found in low-end CPU such as the 11th Gen i3, Pentium, and Intel Celeron and has a base clock of 400 MHz and a boost clock of 1250 MHz.

How is 11th Gen Intel Core i3 1115G4 for gaming

In terms of performance Xe Graphics G4 when it comes it comes integrated graphics solutions perform relatively well and goes toe with the likes of AMD Vega 5 (4000 series) Graphics and Nvidia Mx230 Graphics which as 2 GB of dedicated Graphics. However, remember that as its an integrated graphics solution its performance greatly depends on a number of factors such as the configured TDP (15-28 Watts), Clock Speed, Cooling Solution, and RAM configuration.

Benchmark

How is the 11th Gen Intel Core i3 1115G4 (Good or Bad)

The 11th Gen Intel Core i3 1115G4 when it comes to real-world performance is between 10th Gen Intel Core i3 1005G1 and 1035G1. It is a great CPU for your day-to-day tasks essential tasks such as Browsing, Streaming, Videoconferencing, and using office productivity workloads such as excel and PowerPoint.

However, if your workflow involves video editing, photo editing, and CAD workloads I am not going to recommend the i3 1115G4 as it is still a dual-core processor.

3D Animation and Rendering

  • Cinebench R20
  • Cinebench R15

Based on cinema 4d the Cinebench R20 measures CPU performance in animation, 3d-modeling, simulation, and rendering. Single-core performance measures the responsiveness of the software under active workloads while the multi-core score measures the CPU’s ability to handle tasks such as rendering, encoding, and other workloads that benefit from better multi-threaded performance.

The 11th Gen Intel Core i3 1115G4 gets an impressive single-core score in Cinebench R20 beating the likes of 10th gen i5 1035G1 by 14 percent and its AMD Ryzen counterparts such as the 3500U by 36 percent. However, the 11th Gen Intel Core i3 1115G4 is still a dual-core processor and is not very competitive when it comes to multi-thread performance, and gets absolutely destroyed by its AMD counterparts such as the AMD ryzen 3 4300U by 56 percent and the 11th Gen i3 1115G4 has half the performance of 11th Gen Intel Core i5-1135G7.

Cinebench R15 Score is based on cinema 4D and is the predecessor of Cinebench R20 benchmarks.

Productivity benchmarks

  • Geekbench 5

The GeekBench Single-core score can be used to estimate the real-world performance of day-to-day applications such as Ms word, Google Chrome, and several games. The GeekBench Single-core score can be used to estimate the real-world performance of a CPU under professional workloads such as data compression, 2d/3d rendering, machine learning, and physics simulation(CAD applications).
