Gimli is a new home-built system comprising an Intel Core i7 CPU, 6 GB RAM, 1 TB HD, and GeForce 9500 graphics. It runs 64 bit versions of Ubuntu 9.04 and Windows 7. The chip provides 4 CPU cores with hyper-threading, or 8 concurrent threads of execution, more or less.
I am hoping to start to understand CUDA programming and otherwise to see what kinds of DSP we can do. Oh, and maybe load a game or two.
