Intel® oneAPI Beta Releases
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*
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.
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 https://software.intel.com/en-us/oneapi. Beta04 is available in the oneAPI DevCloud and via web download, containers, and repositories.
Codeplay Brings SYCL*, Data Parallel C++ to Nvidia GPUs
“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.
