Please see the following links available online for the latest information regarding the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP):

System Requirements

Depending on the software distribution that you received Intel IPP with, the Intel® IPP 2017 supports the following processor types:

  • Intel® Core™ processors
  • Intel® Xeon® processors
  • Intel® Xeon Phi™ processors
  • Intel® Atom™ processors
  • Intel® Quark™ microprocessors

Supported operating systems

The lists below pertain only to the system requirements necessary to support developing applications with Intel® IPP. Please review your compiler (GCC*, Microsoft* Visual Studio* or Intel® Compiler, CLANG) hardware and software system requirements, in the documentation provided with that product, to determine the minimum development system requirements necessary to support your compiler product.

      Microsoft* Windows* OS:

  • Windows 10* (IA-32/Intel® 64)
  • Windows 8.1* (IA-32/Intel® 64)
  • Windows 8* (IA-32/Intel® 64)

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
