Intel® oneAPI Beta Releases


Beta05 Updates

March 26, 2020 | oneAPI, DPC++, DevCloud, VTune Profiler

Release 05 of Intel® oneAPI beta products is now live. Here are the highlights:

  • Extensive compiler improvements for mixed-language development, including DPC++/OpenMP* composability, additional OpenMP 5.0 and Fortran constructs, and increased runtime performance
  • New support for Microsoft Visual Studio Code* (VS Code) includes code samples browser and profiling tool plugins to speed code development
  • New and enhanced functions for Intel® oneAPI libraries, including matrix multiplication, machine learning, and codecs for CPU and GPU platforms
  • Additional GPU performance metrics and easier workflow for FPGA performance analysis in Intel® VTune™ Profiler
  • New and enhanced code samples, including 2D finite difference wave equation solution, Mandelbrot, and matrix multiplication
  • New CentOS* container distribution

We encourage you to try oneAPI today. Beta05 is available now in the oneAPI DevCloud and via web download, containers, and repositories.

Intel® DevCloud Now Supporting JupyterLab*

March 26, 2020 | oneAPI, DevCloud

Intel® DevCloud for oneAPI now supports the web-based JupyterLab* development environment to deliver a “modern” experience for Python*, AI, and other developers. They can use this platform to put instructions into code and do data analysis, data visualization, and interactive exploratory computing. Read more.

oneAPI Specification: Intel Compute Runtime Adds oneAPI Level Zero Support

March 9, 2020 | oneAPI Specification

“Meet Level Zero API and NEO driver running on Intel Gen9, Gen11, and Gen12 hardware first on Linux*, but it will not stop there” — Gregory Stoner, GPU Computing Solutions, Intel Corporation

The open source implementation of Level Zero, the low-level API specification for oneAPI, was just released, making it easier for accelerator vendors to leverage oneAPI for their devices. Looking forward to community feedback here.

Beta04 Update

February 14, 2020 | oneAPI, DPC++, Rendering, DevCloud

The Intel® oneAPI 2021.1 Beta04 release is now available. Updates include:

  • Enhancements to improve developer productivity for Intel CPU-GPU systems including improved DPC++ language conciseness for easier code comprehension and maintainability, broader support for Unified Shared Memory programming, additional GPU function support in oneAPI libraries, and improved analysis capabilities in Intel® Advisor and Intel® VTune Profiler.
  • Improved performance, functionality, and stability across the Intel® oneAPI toolkits.
  • Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit introduces Intel® Open Volume Kernel Library for greatly enhanced volume sampling and rendering features.

We encourage you to try oneAPI. To get started, go to Beta04 is available in the oneAPI DevCloud and via web download, containers, and repositories.

Codeplay Brings SYCL*, Data Parallel C++ to Nvidia GPUs

Feburary 3, 2020 | oneAPI, DPC++

“I promised at SC19 that we would open source SYCL fr Nvidia GPUs using Intel’s DPC++ SYCL compiler … and here it is. It’s a work-in-progress but being actively developed.” — Andrew Richards, CEO, Codeplay Software

Codeplay Software has announced the first release of its DPC++ compiler for Nvidia GPUs. This announcement marks a major milestone on the road to a single, cross-architecture, cross-vendor accelerator programming model. Read more.
