Fortran macOS*

C++ macOS*

What's Included

Fortran macOS

  • Intel® Fortran Compiler
  • Intel® Math Kernel Library
  • Intel® Distribution for Python* (separate download required)
  • GNU Project Debugger* (GDB) 7.10 (command line, for CPU only)

C++ macOS

  • Intel® C++ Compiler
  • Intel® Math Kernel Library
  • Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library
  • Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives
  • Intel® Threading Building Blocks
  • Intel® Distribution for Python* (separate download required)
  • GNU Project Debugger* (GDB) 7.10 (command line, for CPU only)

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.

Operating Systems

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.

Additional Software

For macOS, the Intel C++ Compiler and Intel Fortran Compiler require an installation of Xcode* 9.

Disk Space

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)

Installation Notes

  • Installation on IA-32 architecture hosts is no longer supported.
  • Installing Xcode on the Intel Fortran Compiler or Intel C++ Compiler is required.
  • To prevent /tmp from filling up during installation, allocate at least 12 GB of free space for the folder.
