Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit System Requirements

ID 764491
Updated 11/8/2023
Version 2024.0



Directory Layout Change

Directory layout is improved across all products to streamline installation and setup.

The Unified Directory Layout is implemented in 2024.0. If you have multiple toolkit versions installed, the Unified layout ensures that your development environment contains the correct component versions for each installed version of the toolkit.

The directory layout used before 2024.0, the Component Directory Layout, is still supported on new and existing installations.

For detailed information about the Unified layout, including how to initialize the environment and advantages with the Unified layout, refer to Use the setvars and oneapi-vars Scripts with Linux and Use the setvars and oneapi-vars Scripts with Windows.

Common Hardware Requirements


Systems based on Intel® 64 architectures below are supported both as host and target platforms.

  • Intel® Core™ processor family or higher
  • Intel® Xeon® processor family
  • Intel® Xeon® Scalable processor family

Development Tools

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.

Known Issues

  • RESOLVED Available November 21, 2023. With the 2024.0 release Intel containers for Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit and Intel® HPC Toolkit for Ubuntu 22.04 are currently not available. New builds are expected on the Intel Docker repositories in the coming days. All other distribution images are already available.

  • There is a known issue integrating Intel software developer tools (Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit, Intel® HPC Toolkit, or their component products) into Microsoft Visual Studio* 2022 (17.7 or higher) on offline systems with the Windows Performance Toolkit (Win11SDK_WindowsPerformanceToolkit) installed. This results in an incomplete integration. To work around the issue, either enable an Internet connection during Intel developer tools installation or uninstall the Windows Performance Toolkit before installing Intel developer tools, after Intel developer tools are installed, reinstall the Windows Performance Toolkit.

  • The environment start up scripts have been migrated to POSIX compliant scripts. For non-POSIX shells, such as csh, there is a workaround for command-line usage for the Component Directory Layout:

    % bash -c 'source /opt/intel/oneapi/ ; exec csh'

    For the Unified Directory Layout use

    % bash -c 'source <install-dir>/<toolkit-version>/ ; exec csh'

  • Intel® oneAPI Toolkits 2022.1.3 and earlier and Intel® Parallel Studio XE (any version) do not support Microsoft Visual Studio 2022. On systems with Microsoft Visual Studio 2022 installed, Intel® oneAPI and Intel® Parallel Studio XE installers may fail during installation, upgrade, modification, or uninstallation. Refer to this article for more information.
