Original author here. I'm using an Intel i7 CPU, 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570. Below is my /proc/cpuinfo (for one core).

It also builds and runs on my Thinkpad X220 (also an Intel i7) with 8GB and Intel graphics card.

Thank you so much for your help! If I installed rgbdslam v2 on a thinkpad x220, can I use SIFTGPU? I have read your paper and I found that It is much better that other algorithms.

On mine, no. I am not sure whether there are x220 models with "real" GPU. However, I'll soon publish an update on github, where ORB is as fast and as good as SIFTGPU.
