Several community members have asked about a laptop that can create full-body captures with Depthkit Studio, which requires a minimum of 5 sensors.
We’ve recently successfully tested a configuration that is working for us on our team. The laptop is the Dell Precision 7670 configured as follows:
- CPU: Intel Core i7-12850HX
- GPU: Nvidia RTX A4500
- RAM: 64GB DDR5
Additional hardware is required to break out the computer’s Thunderbolt port to USB to provide enough supported connections and bandwidth for all of the sensors.
- Sonnet Echo Express SE I Thunderbolt to PCIe Expansion
- StarTech PEXUSB3S44V 4-Port USB Expansion Card
In this configuration, we have successfully captured 5 sensors, each set to 1440p color resolution and 640x576 depth resolution.
Bear in mind that we have performed limited testing on this configuration of hardware, unlike our Depthkit Studio Hardware packages, which are pre-configured and tested from end to end to guarantee complete system functionality.
If anyone in the community is using this or another laptop configuration, we’d love to hear about your results!
