System Requirements

Galene is fairly computationally intensive and will benefit significantly from a modern multicore CPU with plenty of RAM. As a guideline, we would suggest at least 8 GB of RAM. Only 64 bit processors and operating systems are supported.

Galene can optionally take advantage of modern GPUs from NVIDIA to accelerate motion correction. GPUs must support CUDA compute capability 3.0.
