Hi,
I have  my MiniPC  Intel NUC 513 NYH i3 5010 with  WIN 10 pro 21H1- (19043.1110). 
For futur WIN 11 , is it possible to change on this board ,the Intel i3 CPU to an Intel i7 ?  Thank you for your assistance.

Quite simply: No. The processor is soldered to the board and is not replaceable. Even if the processor was replaceable, going from 5th gen i3 to 5th gen i7 (which is all you could do) does not help; the requirement for Windows 11 is currently at 8th gen processors. Microsoft might support 7th gen processors, but I doubt it will ever support 5th gen processors.

Sorry,

n_scott_pearson,
thank you very much for this clarification.
So I think I should definitely consider purchasing another mini PC that better meets the requirements of WIN 11.
