Intel® Advisor System Requirements

ID 678712
Updated 3/28/2024
Version 2024.1




This document provides details about hardware, operating system, and software prerequisites for the Intel® Advisor.

Hardware Requirements

  • At least 2 GB of RAM
  • 650 MB of free disk space required for all product features and all architectures.
  • A system based on an Intel® 64 architecture processor supporting the Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 2 (Intel® SSE2) instructions (Intel® Pentium 4 processor or later, or Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors)
    • Since the Intel Advisor requires specific knowledge of assembly-level instructions, its analysis may not operate correctly if the code contains non-Intel instructions. In this case, run the analysis with a target executable that contains only Intel® instructions. After you finish using the Intel Advisor, you can use the assembler or optimizing compiler options that provide the non-Intel instructions.
    • For the best experience, a multi-core or multi-processor system is recommended
  • GPU Profiling and Roofline features are supported on Intel® processors with discrete Intel® Iris® Xe MAX GPU, and Intel® Data Center GPU MAX Series (formerly code-named Ponte Vecchio).

Software Requirements

NOTE: On Linux, the X.Org X11 libXss runtime library must be installed for the Intel Advisor GUI.

  • Supported operating systems (embedded editions are not supported):
