Intel introduces oneAPI 2022 toolkits. The new toolkits allow developers to benchmark virtual Intel CPUs and GPUs for optimal application performance.

Intel’s oneAPI toolkits, which consist of various cross-architecture and open source components, allow developers to benchmark different types of CPUs and GPUs for optimizing application performance. In this way, they can figure out which hardware is right for their applications without having to invest in physical CPUs or GPUs.

Functionality

The now presented oneAPI 2022 toolkits include a unified compiler that implements code C++, SYCL, Fortran and Python for CPUs and GPUs. In addition, the toolkits feature so-called advanced accelerator performance modelling, tuning and ray tracing visualization of workloads.

In this way, developers can use tools that improve productivity and speed of code development for building applications for multiple processor architectures.

Hardware support

In addition, the chip giant indicates that the toolkits support a range of new processors and GPUs. These include the 12th generation Intel Core processors with AVX-VNNI, the upcoming Saphire Rapids Next Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and the upcoming Intel Xe client and data center GPUs.

Intel’s oneAPI 2022 toolkits are available immediately.
