NOTE: Intel recommends that your system be configured to provide virtual memory equal to the recommended physical RAM necessary to process your design.
|CPU Host/Target||Intel Integrated Graphics (GPU)||FPGA|
Intel® Iris® Xe MAX Graphics(DG1):
- For hardware compiles on FPGA, you must use Intel® FPGA Add-On for oneAPI Base Toolkit. Refer to Intel® FPGA Add-On for oneAPI Base Toolkit System Requirements for more information.
- FPGAs do not support Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.4 OS. However, if you want to compile your FPGA designs on RHEL 7.4 OS, refer to Compiling Intel® oneAPI DPC++ FPGA Designs on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)* 7.4 OS.
- The Ubuntu Server 18.04 with Hardware Enablement (HWE) kernel is not supported and there is no plan to support it for this release.
- GNU* Compiler Collection (GCC*): 7 or higher
- Eclipse* developers: Eclipse 4.16 and 4.17
- GPU Development:
- Latest Intel® GPU drivers from General Purpose GPU Drivers for Linux* Operating Systems.
- FPGA Development:
- Intel® FPGA Add-On for oneAPI Base Toolkit (to support hardware compile flow).
- GCC 7.4.0 (the default version for Ubuntu 18.04)
- Development with Intel® oneAPI DPC++ Library:
- Use of the range-based API requires C++17 and the C++ standard libraries that are included with GCC 8.1 (or higher) or Clang 7 (or higher).
- A known issue is causing linker errors while using Link Time Optimization(LTO) on RHEL and SUSE. To resolve the issue make sure the following minimum versions of binutils are installed:
- SUSE15.2: binutils 2.35
- RHEL 8: binutils 2.30-82.el8
- OpenMP development:
- libffi.so.6(default version on Ubuntu 18.04). Users with newer OS versions will need to specifically install libffi.so.6.
Summary of Intel Integrated Graphics (GPU) Development
- Supported Linux kernel: 4.11 or higher deployment is required
- Supported Linux OS:
- for GEN9: Ubuntu LTS 18.04.3, RHEL 8.1, SUSE 15.x
- GNU* GCC*: 7 or higher
- Latest Intel® GPU drivers
- User should be on the "video" group to have access to hardware. Use the command below to add:
$ usermod -a -G video $USER
Windows 10 (64 bit)
NOTE: For hardware compiles on FPGA, you must use Intel® FPGA Add-On for oneAPI Base Toolkit. Refer to Intel® FPGA Add-On for oneAPI Base Toolkit System Requirements for more information.
- GPU development: Latest driver from Intel® Graphics Windows 10 DCH Drivers
- To use the Microsoft Visual Studio* development environment or command-line tools to build IA-32 or Intel® 64 architecture applications:
- Microsoft Visual Studio* 2017 Professional Edition (or higher edition) or Microsoft Visual Studio* Community 2017 with 'Desktop development with C++' component installed
- Microsoft Visual Studio* 2019 Community, Enterprise and Professional Editions with 'Desktop development with C++' component installed
- For addtional details see the article, Intel Compilers Compatibility with Microsoft Visual Studio and Xcode.
