That is not true about requiring I8 chips.
My Dell is running:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz, 2001 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
And it just passed the Microsoft Windows 11 health tool.
Here is the message I received after running the tool
This PC can run Windows 11
It has TPM 2.0 which if you are running Windows 20h1 build 1943 can be found under Device manager
It is just after Processor, here is the Jaws speech history to help put it in context in Device Manager:
Having said that, there certainly seems to be a minimum processor but I don’t’ read computerese well enough to know if I7 is the minimum, or something earlier, but I3 is likely not going to work.
If it can be changed out, it is probably more costly than buying a new laptop.
You can get the tool here:

You have a seventh generation chip, I3-7020U, at this point only 8th gen chips and above are supported and this is independent from having UEFI as the BIOS mode and secure boot as well as TPM 2.0 which system information does not show, you have to run TPM.msc to see your TPM version. Anyways, even if you have TPM 2.0, the fact that you have a 7th gen CPU remains and that would probably not be anything you can replace in a basic laptop.
HI. JUST DID A PC HEALTH CHECK AND SAYS MY PROCESSOR DOES NOT MEET THE MINIMUM SPECS WITH THE PROCESSOR FOR WINDOWS 11. HOW DO I CHANGE THIS. DO I NEED TO HAVE SIGHTED ASSISTANCE AND MAYBE UPDATE THE BIOS.
