I am participating in the beta program for the 2018 compiler release. When I try to compile for the KNC with -mmic option, the compiler tells me that the option is not supported anymore. What is the replacement? Where can I learn more?
- Development Tools
- Intel® C++ Compiler
- Intel® Parallel Studio XE
- Intel® System Studio
- Parallel Computing
Yes, it has been removed. More details in the Release Notes.

So what is the roadmap for existing KNC users like me?
I would also like an answer to this question.
Does it mean KNC users can never upgrade to compiler version 18 or above?
We will continue to support Intel® Xeon Phi™ X100 coprocessors in the Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2017 release and will continue to do so till Jan 2020. The Intel® Xeon Phi™ X100 coprocessors have been announced End of Life (https://ark.intel.com/products/series/92649/Intel-Xeon-Phi-x100-Product-Family).
