- Microsoft Windows Server* 2019
- Microsoft Windows Server* 2016
- Microsoft Windows Server* 2022
Using Microsoft’s Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL2) in Windows 10 and Windows 11, you can install the native Linux distribution of Intel oneAPI toolkits and libraries on Windows for CPU and GPU workflows. Details here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/developer/articles/technical/use-oneapi-toolkits-on-wsl-2.html
- macOS* 10.15, 11.0,11.2 Big Sur, 12.0 Monterey
- Xcode* 11.x , Xcode* 12.1, Xcode* 13.1
Note: macOS* support for Mac* computers with Intel® Processors
Note:There is an issue with IDE integration. For Xcode* IDE integration support in this release, use the legacy build system.
Xcode for command line
You can install just the Xcode Command Line Tools with this command from a terminal window:
When linking with Xcode 12.0, Xcode 12.1 or Xcode 12.2 some libraries are not found.
Install Xcode, then run:
sudo xcode-select -s /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer
Then accept the license (only if you haven't yet) by:
sudo xcodebuild -license
In order to gain all functionality and optimal performance with Intel® oneAPI for macOS* we recommend installing both the Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit
AND the Intel® oneAPI HPC Toolkit. Both toolkits should be downloaded and installed for optimal performance and to obtain all available Intel PerformanceLibraries. Please refer to the Installation Guide for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits for obtaining and installing both toolkits.
Supported Target Hardware Platforms
