- 8 GB RAM recommended
- For FPGA development, see Intel(R) DPC++ Compiler System Requirements.
Common Software Requirements
Operating System Requirements
The operating systems listed below are supported on Intel® 64 Architecture. Individual tools may support additional operating systems and architecture configurations. See the individual tool release notes for full details.
For developing applications for offloading to accelerators like GPU or FPGA, a specific version of GPU driver is required for the supported operating system. Please visit Installation Guide for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits "Install Intel GPU Drivers" section for up to date information.
- GNU* Bash is required for local installation and for setting up the environment to use the toolkit.

Diagnostics Utility for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits
The Diagnostics Utility for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits is designed to diagnose the system status for using Intel® products. With this utility, you can identify errors such as:
- Permissions errors for the current user
- Missing driver or an incompatible version of a driver
- Incompatible version of the Operating System
To learn more, see the Diagnostics Utility for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits User Guide.
Some Intel® oneAPI Toolkits include Eclipse* plug-ins that require the Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers package (aka Eclipse CDT). The plug-ins support the past two Eclipse versions that were released as of one month before the toolkit was released. For example, the 2021.2 version toolkits supported Eclipse CDT versions 2020-11 and 2020-12.
The latest version of the Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers install package is available at https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/.
