Boost the performance of your code

Intel® Software’s tools can help you at every stage of the development process – build, analysis, debugging and tuning. Accelerate application performance to increase reliability and scalability. Transform code into high-performance solutions for distributed processing and HPC environments, making your applications, such as parallel applications used for multicore and manycore processors, even more efficient and amazing.

The tools that comprised Intel® Parallel Studio XE and Intel System Studio are now integrated into Intel®’s next generation oneAPI products. The Intel® oneAPI Toolkits are upward compatible supersets of the features in the previous studio products, so the studio products will no longer be offered to new customers in 2021.


oneAPI is an industry initiative creating an open, standards-based, cross-architecture programming model to simplify development for a wide range of data-centric workloads across a variety of architectures (CPU, GPU, FPGA, and other accelerators). It includes a cross-architecture language Data Parallel C++ (based on ISO C++ and Khronos Group’s SYCL), advanced libraries, and community extensions.


Together, oneAPI and Intel oneAPI Toolkits bring productive and performant heterogenous programming to developers.

  • Future-ready programming model provides freedom of choice
    • An open alternative to single-vendor/proprietary lock-in enables easy architecture retargeting.
    • Apply your skills to the next innovation, not rewriting software for the next hardware platform.
  • Realise all the hardware value
    • Expose and exploit all the cutting-edge features of the latest hardware ‒ e.g. 3rd gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors enable Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) including Intel® Deep Learning Boost and bfloat16 acceleration for AI acceleration.
    • Performance for Accelerated Architectures ⎯ Take full advantage of accelerated compute by maximising performance across Intel CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs.
  • Confidently develop performant code quickly and correctly
    • Fast efficient development with a complete set of cross-architecture libraries and advanced tools.
    • Shorter learning curve with familiar languages and standards; is interoperable with existing HPC programming standards including Fortran, C/C++, OpenMP and MPI, as well as Python with a rich set of optimised Python libraries.
    • Easy integration with legacy code including migration of CUDA code to DPC++.

Online Workshop: Technical Insights into the Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit

9am BST, Tuesday 8 June 2021

You will get a unique opportunity to deep dive into the Intel® oneAPI Rendering Toolkit, a set of tools and libraries for professionals using rendering and raytracing techniques to produce high-end data visualisation and graphical solutions in commercial and academic domains.

In 2021, the Intel Embree ray tracing library, included in the toolkit, has received a Scientific and Technical Achievement Award (the “Oscar”) from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in recognition of its role as a contributing innovation in the moviemaking process.

We welcome you to this online workshop where Intel experts will teach features, APIs and required data models to build visual applications. The trainers will present and demo how to use the Rendering Toolkit for shared and distributed computing on heterogeneous hardware platforms for Intel x86 based CPUs, Intel hardware accelerators and Intel discrete graphics solutions.

After the event the attendees will:
