Get Started with the Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler

The Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler provides optimizations that help your applications run faster on Intel® 64 architectures on Windows* and Linux*, with support for the latest C, C++, and SYCL language standards. This compiler produces optimized code that can run significantly faster by taking advantage of the ever-increasing core count and vector register width in Intel® Xeon® processors and compatible processors. The Intel® Compiler will help you boost application performance through superior optimizations and Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) vectorization, integration with Intel® Performance Libraries, and by leveraging the OpenMP* 5.0/5.1 parallel programming model.

The Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler compiles C++-based SYCL* source files for a wide range of compute accelerators.

The Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler is part of the Intel® oneAPI Toolkits.
