Minimum System Requirements
Intel® architectures based on 32-bit systems are supported as target platforms. Components no longer support installation on IA-32 architecture hosts.
Systems based on Intel® 64 architectures are supported as host and target platforms:
- Intel® Core™ processor family
- Intel® Xeon® processor family
- Intel Xeon Scalable processors
Note: We assume that these processors are configured into homogeneous clusters.
All components in Intel® Parallel Studio XE support these operating systems on Intel® 64 architectures. Individual component tools may also support additional operating systems and architecture configurations. For full details, see the release notes.
- Debian* 8, 9
- Fedora* 27, 28
- macOS* 10.13
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux* 6, 7 (the equivalent CentOS* versions are supported, but not separately tested)
- SUSE Linux Enterprise Server* 12, 15
- Ubuntu* 16.04, 18.04
- Windows* 7 (deprecated)
- Windows® 10
- Microsoft Windows Server* 2012, 2012 R2, 2016
Note: Intel MPI Library and Intel Trace Analyzer and Collector are supported on Intel® Cluster Ready systems and high-performance computing (HPC) versions of the listed versions of Windows Server. These components are not supported on Ubuntu non-long-term support (LTS) systems.
On Linux, development for a 32-bit target on a 64-bit host may require installing optional library components (ia32-libs, lib32gcc1, lib32stdc++6, libc6-dev-i386, gcc-multilib, g++-multilib) from your Linux distribution.
For Windows, the Intel C++ Compiler and Intel Visual Fortran Compiler requires an installation of one of the following supported versions:
- Microsoft Visual Studio* 2013 (deprecated), 2015, 2017
- Microsoft Visual Studio Express* (only for command line compilation)
For macOS, the Intel C++ Compiler and Intel Fortran Compiler require an installation of Xcode* 9.
For a standard installation, you need a minimum of 12 GB of disk space. Cluster installations require an additional 4 GB of disk space.
Note: The installer may need up to 12 GB of additional temporary disk storage to manage intermediate installation files.
2 GB RAM (minimum)
