Intel® DPC++ Compatibility Tool

The Intel® DPC++ Compatibility Tool assists in migration of CUDA* applications to SYCL* ready code that can use the Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler. Get started.

Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler

The Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler targets CPUs and accelerators through single-source code while permitting custom tuning. Get Started.

Intel® oneAPI DPC++ Library This library is a companion to the Intel® oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler and provides an alternative for C++ developers who create heterogeneous applications and solutions. Its APIs are based on familiar standards-C++ STL, Parallel STL (PSTL), Boost.Compute, and SYCL*-to maximize productivity and performance across CPUs, GPUs, and FPGAs.
Intel® oneAPI Video Processing Library (oneVPL) This library provides access to H264/H265 elementary stream decode and frame processing. By using the high level interface of oneVPL, the same code can unlock hardware capabilities for media across CPU and Intel® Processor Graphics GPUs. Get started.
Intel® Distribution for GDB*

GDB, the GNU Project debugger, allows you to see what is going on `inside' another program while it executes -- or what another program was doing at the moment it crashed. Get Started.

Intel® oneAPI Math Kernel Library (oneMKL) The oneMKL helps you achieve maximum performance with a math computing library of highly optimized, extensively parallelized routines for CPU and GPU. The library has C and Fortran interfaces for most routines on CPU, and SYCL* interfaces for some routines on both CPU and GPU. Get started.
Intel® oneAPI Threading Building Blocks (oneTBB) oneTBB is a flexible performance library that simplifies the work of adding parallelism to complex applications, even if you're not a threading expert. Learn more.
Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) is an extensive library of ready-to-use, domain-specific functions that are highly optimized for diverse Intel® architectures. Get Started with Intel® IPP or Get Started with Intel® IPP Cryptography.
Intel® oneAPI Data Analytics Library The Intel® oneAPI Data Analytics Library (oneDAL) is a library that helps speed up big data analysis by providing highly optimized algorithmic building blocks for all stages of data analytics (preprocessing, transformation, analysis, modeling, validation, and decision making) in batch, online, and distributed processing modes of computation. The current version of oneDAL provides SYCL* API extensions to the traditional C++ interface. Get started.
Intel® oneAPI Collective Communications Library Intel® oneAPI Collective Communications Library (oneCCL) is a scalable and high-performance communication library for Deep Learning (DL) and Machine Learning (ML) workloads. It develops the ideas originated in Intel(R) Machine Learning Scaling Library and expands the design and API to encompass new features and use cases. Get started.
Intel® oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library The Intel® oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library (oneDNN) is an open-source performance library for deep learning applications. The library includes basic building blocks for neural networks optimized for Intel® Architecture Processors and Intel® Processor Graphics. oneDNN is intended for deep learning applications and framework developers interested in improving application performance on Intel CPUs and GPUs. Get started.
Intel® VTune™ Profiler

Intel® VTune™ Profiler is a performance analysis tool targeted for users developing serial and multithreaded applications. The tool is delivered as a Performance Profiler with Intel Performance Snapshots and supports local and remote target analysis on the Windows* and Linux* platforms. Get started.
