Arguments
keyword
The only supported value for this argument is
spir64
.
When you specify
spir64
, the compiler generates an x86 + SPIR64 (64-bit Standard Portable Intermediate Representation) fat binary for Intel® GPU devices.
Default
OFF
If this option is not specified, no x86 + SPIR64 fat binary is created.
Description
This option enables offloading to a specified GPU target if OpenMP* features have been enabled.
To use this option, you must enable recognition of OpenMP* features by specifying one of the following options:
Linux
  • -qopenmp
  • -fiopenmp
  • -fopenmp
    (deprecated; it is equivalent to
    -qopenmp
    )
Windows
  • /Qopenmp
  • /Qiopenmp
The following shows an example:
icx (or icpx) -fiopenmp -fopenmp-targets=spir64 matmul_offload.cpp -o matmul
When you specify
-fopenmp-targets
or
/Qopenmp-targets
, C++ exception handling is disabled for target compilations.
Linux
For host compilations, if you want to disable C++ exception handling, you must specify option
-fno-exceptions
.
When OpenMP* offloading is enabled, this option only applies to device-specific compilation.
