[Q] Can My Laptop Run ISAAC SDK?

Hello guys

This is my laptop spec: win 10, intel i7 6700 HQ 2.6 ghz, 16gb 2133 mhz cl17 ram, 4 gb nvidia GTX950M, 250gb ssd (60~100 gb available). I need to use ubuntu with virtual OS as well.

I think jetson nano can run Isaac. Can my laptop run too? How can I compare this?

I found out the requirements below;

  • CPU: Intel i7-6800K
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 (minimum), NVIDIA Titan XP (recommended), RTX 2070 (Recommended)
  • Memory: 32 GB
  • Storage: 512 GB
  • OS: Ubuntu 18.04, 64-bit


How jetson nano run Isaac? This requirements are very high. Is 15 gb virtual space enough to run ISAAC?

My gpu(geforce GTX950M) compute capability is higher than 3.5 so it can run isaac. How about other specs and virtual device?

Thank you

Hi, @degirmencioglumehmet111 ,

Thanks for choosing Isaac! Memory is kind of “soft” limit as the real consumption depends on what Codelets are running.
If we run out of the main memory, Linux would put some data on “swap” instead. As a result, it would be much harder to have consistent ticking pattern as “swapping” is taking more time and less consistent.

Building may also take more time if we are memory limited, as the OS has to swap data in and out.

Have fun building robot!

Thank you for reply,

Is it possible to use Isaac on Oracle VMware guest linux OS. I cant use my gpu card on guest linux OS.
