The GCel uses T805 transputer CPU's at a clockspeed of $30\,$MHz. Each transputer has a peak performance of $4.3\,$MFlops and a LINPACK 100x100 performance of $0.63\,$MFlops. The GCel of the 2 has $4\,$MB memory per node. The communication between processors has a sustained performance of $8.8\,$MB/s. The GCel runs under PARIX 1.2 and uses the ACE Fortran compiler and 2's version of the MPI libraries.
