Intel today released oneAPI 2022 toolkits. Newly enhanced toolkits expand cross-architecture features to provide developers utility and architectural choice to accelerate computing.
“I am impressed by the breadth of more than 900 technical improvements that the oneAPI software engineering team has done to accelerate development time and performance for critical application workloads across Intel’s client and server CPUs and GPUs,” said Greg Lavender, Intel chief technology officer.
“The rich set of oneAPI technologies conforms to key industry standards, with deep technical innovations that enable applications developers to obtain the best possible run-time performance from the cloud to the edge. Multi-language support and cross-architecture performance acceleration are ready today in our oneAPI 2022 release to further enable programmer productivity on Intel platforms.”
New capabilities include unified compiler implementing C++, SYCL and Fortran, data parallel Python for CPUs and GPUs, advanced accelerator performance modeling and tuning, and performance acceleration for AI and ray tracing visualisation workloads. The oneAPI cross-architecture programming model provides developers with tools that aim to improve the productivity and velocity of code development when building cross-architecture applications.
According to an Evans Data survey, 40% of developers target heterogeneous systems that use more than one type of processor, processor core or coprocessor.1 The pace of innovation is only accelerating with cross-architecture computing driven forward with oneAPI across heterogeneous fabrics of CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and other accelerators — all of which require software to bind these elements into a complete solution.
With oneAPI, developers have the freedom to choose the best hardware for a given solution without the economic and technical burdens of proprietary programming models.
The new toolkits said to deliver performance and productivity through a complete set of advanced tools including compilers, libraries, pre-optimised frameworks, analysers and debuggers. “They are now available to download or use in the Intel® DevCloud for free.”
