Intel® oneAPI HPC Toolkit
is a comprehensive suite of development tools that make it fast and easy to build modern code that gets maximum performance out of the newest Intel® processors. This toolkit enables high performance computing on clusters or individual nodes with flexible options including optimal performance on a CPU or GPU.
Creating code is simplified with the latest techniques in vectorization, multi-threading, multi-node, and memory optimization. Get powerful, consistent programming with 512-bit Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX-512) for Intel® Core™ and Xeon® processors, OpenMP support, plus support for the latest standards and integrated development environments (IDEs). New features include greater scalability and reduced latency with the next-generation Intel® MPI Library. Take advantage of industry leading Priority Support provided by Intel engineers who can help you quickly troubleshoot and accelerate your performance-critical applications for improved business value.
The goal of this Get Started guide is to get you acquainted with the HPC Kit by building a sample project and using this toolkit to optimize your code for the best performance possible.
Included in this toolkit are:

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.
