As we mentioned above, Windows 11 is only compatible with Intel i3 8th generation or higher processors. However, unsupported systems can install Windows 11 from an ISO image file or DVD/USB drive, but cannot continue to receive product updates from Microsoft for Windows 11 security and maintenance releases.

The Windows 11 requires UEFI and security features to enhance hardware-based security results in some Intel i3 processors incompatible with Windows 11. And Intel i3 processors based computers incompatible with Windows 11 had an above-average crash rate. The specific reasons why Intel i3 processors are not compatible with Windows 11 can be found through the Windows 11 PC Health Check app.

The hardware-based security features of Windows 11 are designed to ensure that malicious payloads do not disrupt the boot sequence of Windows 11-based computers. Therefore we do not recommend installing Windows 11 on a computer with an Intel i3 processor incompatible with Windows 11.

Of course, we will also provide detailed methods to help those who especially want to install Windows 11 on incompatible processors. For more details, please read the article: How to install Windows 11 on unsupported PCs.

Remind again: The Intel i3 based computer incompatible with Windows 11 will not receive security updates from Microsoft through Windows update if you install Windows 11 on it.

Conclusion

Intel I3 processors older than 8th generation are not compatible with Windows 11 installations. Intel I3 processor older than 8th generation cannot be automatically updated from Windows 10 to Windows 11 through the Windows Update program.
