oneAPI is an open, unified and cross-architecture programming model for CPUs and accelerator architectures. Standards-based oneAPI simplifies software development, enables legacy code integration, and delivers uncompromised performance for accelerated compute without proprietary lock-in. With oneAPI, developers can choose the best architecture for their solution without rewriting software for the next architecture and platform.
