This article contains the common system requirements for Intel® oneAPI Base Toolkit. For component level system requirements, please scroll down and click on each component link for details.

Common Hardware Requirements

CPU Processor 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

Requirements for Accelerators

Disk Space Requirements

  • ~3 GB of disk space (minimum) if only installing compiler and its libraries: Intel oneAPI DPC++/C++ Compiler, Intel® DPC++ Compatibility Tool, Intel® oneAPI DPC++ Library and Intel® Threading Building Block
  • Maximum of ~24 GB diskspace if installing all components

NOTE: During the installation process, the installer may need up to 6 GB of additional temporary disk storage to manage the download and intermediate installation files.

Memory Requirements

Common Software Requirements

Operating System Requirements

The operating systems listed below are supported on Intel® 64 Architecture. Individual tools may support additional operating systems and architecture configurations. See the individual tool release notes for full details.

For developing applications for offloading to accelerators like GPU or FPGA, a specific version of GPU driver is required for the supported operating system. Please visit Installation Guide for Intel® oneAPI Toolkits "Install Intel GPU Drivers" section for up to date information.
