System Requirements#

Note

Certain hardware, including but not limited to GPU and NPU, requires manual installation of specific drivers and/or other software components to work correctly and/or to utilize hardware capabilities at their best. This might require updates to the operating system, including but not limited to Linux kernel, please refer to their documentation for details. These modifications should be handled by user and are not part of OpenVINO installation.

CPU#

  • Intel Atom® processor with Intel® SSE4.2 support

  • Intel® Pentium® processor N4200/5, N3350/5, N3450/5 with Intel® HD Graphics

  • 6th - 14th generation Intel® Core™ processors

  • Intel® Core™ Ultra (codename Meteor Lake)

  • 1st - 5th generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors

  • ARM CPUs with armv7a and higher, ARM64 CPUs with arm64-v8a and higher, Apple® Mac with Apple silicon

  • Ubuntu 22.04 long-term support (LTS), 64-bit (Kernel 5.15+)

  • Ubuntu 20.04 long-term support (LTS), 64-bit (Kernel 5.15+)

  • Ubuntu 18.04 long-term support (LTS) with limitations, 64-bit (Kernel 5.4+)

  • Windows 10

  • Windows 11

  • macOS 12.6 and above, 64-bit and ARM64

  • CentOS 7

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, 64-bit

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed, 64-bit and ARM64

  • Ubuntu 18 ARM64

GPU#

  • Intel® HD Graphics

  • Intel® UHD Graphics

  • Intel® Iris® Pro Graphics

  • Intel® Iris® Xe Graphics

  • Intel® Iris® Xe Max Graphics

  • Intel® Arc™ GPU Series

  • Intel® Data Center GPU Flex Series

  • Intel® Data Center GPU Max Series

  • Ubuntu 22.04 long-term support (LTS), 64-bit

  • Ubuntu 20.04 long-term support (LTS), 64-bit

  • Windows 10, 64-bit

  • Windows 11, 64-bit

  • CentOS 7

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8, 64-bit

  • The use of GPU requires drivers that are not included in the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit package.

  • Processor graphics are not included in all processors. See Product Specifications for information about your processor.

  • While this release of OpenVINO supports Ubuntu 20.04, the driver stack for Intel discrete graphic cards does not fully support Ubuntu 20.04. We recommend using Ubuntu 22.04 when executing on discrete graphics.

  • The following minimum (i.e., used for old hardware) OpenCL™ driver’s versions were used during OpenVINO internal validation: 22.43 for Ubuntu 22.04, 21.48 for Ubuntu 20.04 and 21.49 for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 (some hardware may require higher versions of drivers).

Intel® Neural Processing Unit#

  • Ubuntu 22.04 long-term support (LTS), 64-bit

  • Windows 11, 64-bit (22H2, 23H2)

  • These Accelerators require drivers that are not included in the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit package.

  • Users can access the NPU plugin through the OpenVINO archives on the download page.

Operating systems and developer environment#

  • Ubuntu 22.04 with Linux kernel 5.15+

  • Ubuntu 20.04 with Linux kernel 5.15+

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 with Linux kernel 5.4

Build environment components:

Higher versions of kernel might be required for 10th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors, 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors, 11th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors S-Series Processors, 12th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors, 13th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors, 14th Gen Intel® Core™ Processors, Intel® Core™ Ultra Processors, 4th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors or 5th Gen Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors to support CPU, GPU, GNA or hybrid-cores CPU capabilities.

Build environment components:

  • macOS 12.6 and above

Build environment components:

  • TensorFlow 1.15, 2.13.1

  • ONNX 1.15

  • PaddlePaddle 2.5

This package can be installed on other versions of DL Frameworks but only the versions specified here are fully validated.

Note

OpenVINO Python binaries and binaries on Windows, CentOS 7, and macOS (x86) are built with oneTBB libraries, and others on Ubuntu and RedHat systems are built with legacy TBB which is released by OS distribution. OpenVINO can be built from source with either oneTBB or legacy TBB on all the systems listed here. System compatibility and performance are improved on Hybrid CPUs such as 12th Gen Intel Core and above.
