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)

  • 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 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)

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.
  • On Windows*, the Intel C++ Compiler and Intel Fortran Compiler require a Microsoft Visual Studio installation.
  • The installer may need up to 12 GB of additional temporary disk storage to manage the intermediate installation files.
