I’ve pre-ordered a i5-1135G7 with 1x16GB ram, and plan to have 3 1440p 60Hz monitors or equivalent (with wide-screen/extra large screen) through a dock. I was wondering if anyone can share their experience. Is it possible to push that kind of pixel count from this cpu?
I work in software dev, so nothing graphics intensive otherwise.
At what point should I start considering using an eGPU?
I didn’t notice you mentioning what kind of software dev you are doing. I would expect performance using the emulators inside Jetbrains IDEs (like Android Studio) or using an Electron-based IDE to take a lot more processing than coding up some deployment yaml file.
I am using that processor with 64GB right now on Linux (and only the default screen). With the 5.13 kernel there is a bit more stuttering when moving the mouse than with the 5.11 kernel. I haven’t tried Windows yet, but maybe someone else could chime in there. I know that’s more cpu than gpu, but perceived performance…
