Laptop recommendation for IsaacSim

Hi.

I am using IsaacSim on a workstation environment with Ubuntu18.04.

Currently I need a high-performance mobile workstation (laptop) capable of IsaacSim, so I’m going to buy one.

Recently, I tried to build the same environment on a dell alienware x15 r1 (rtx 3070), but the installation failed due to a graphic drive problem.

I would like to ask if you can recommend a laptop that can run Isaacsim, which is used by nvidia isaacsim developers.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Suyoung.

Hi have you tried installing the NVIDIA .run drivers? This page could help you troubleshoot some problems.

I think most Dell laptops have good Linux support but not sure about the Alienware series.

Personally, I am using a Razer Blade 15. New devices and OS maybe have some incompatibilities but some issues may get resolved after awhile or workarounds could be found since Razer has a good Linux community too.

Here’s a list of laptops with NVIDIA GPU: https://store.nvidia.com/en-us/studio/store/?page=1&limit=9&locale=en-us&category=Studio-Laptop
Here’s a list of laptops which are Ubuntu certified: https://ubuntu.com/certified?q=&limit=480&category=Laptop&release=20.04+LTS&release=18.04+LTS

Thank you for your kind reply !

Actually I installed graphic driver(version 470 or 495) for my mobile workstation, dell X15 r1(RTX 3070 laptop), and I can check the result as below.

However, the target program doesn’t work after ‘sudo reboot’

It might the linux kernel cannot recognize my gpu, but I really don’t know how to fix this problem.

I already delete and reinstall ubuntu18.04 many times, and graphic drivers as you comment or other ways.

Is there any way to fix this problem ?

Thank you !

I solved this problem with these additional commands below.

  1. Connect my laptop to an external monitor
  2. sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm
  3. sudo prime-select nvidia
  4. sudo reboot

thank you !
