Is an eGPU Appropriate for Isaac Gym


I’ve been using Isaac Sim / Gym hosted on EC2 via the streaming client. It’s a bit laggy so I’m considering getting an eGPU.

eGPU docks suffer from lower bandwidth than PCI, limiting the performance of the GPU for some use cases. However, Isaac Gym seeks to minimize CPU-GPU communication. Does this mean that I should expect little to no harm to performance when using an eGPU rather than an internal GPU?

Thanks for the advice.
