Is this laptop compatible with Qubes OS?

Hi guys! I am new to cubes os and I was wondering, will this laptop with hardware listed below support cubes os?
CPU: Intel Core i7-13700HX
GPU: GeForce RTX 4070
RAM: 16 GB
Exact model is ARDOR GAMING RAGE X17-I7ND311
I want to dual boot Windows(for gaming) and Qubes OS, will I run into any problems or flaws with this idea?


We can’t be sure it will work, nobody reported a hardware compatibility list (hcl) about this particular laptop.

The GPU will certainly draw the battery super fast, someone else reported such an issue, this is because it’s a discrete GPU and Xen doesn’t seem to know what to do with it.

The CPU should work too.

The rest of the build matters a lot for compatibility, but we have no information.

Can I use GPU passthrough with this GPU?

Will the battery drain faster than charge when the laptop is connected to electricity?

yes it should work, but be aware it’s a pain to configure.

no, it will stay charged and even charge when connected to electricity.
