Basically yes. The OpenCL and C/C++ HLS paths of Intel's tools are not under active development anymore and all development is being pushed towards the SYCL C++ path. Though the OpenCL and HLS paths are still supported, but they might be deprecated at some point in the future.

External message (forums etc.,):

  • Yes, Intel PSG is transitioning to an open standard - oneAPI with DPC++, built upon on SYCL. This will enable developers and hardware designers to use a common programming model to target FPGAs at any level – whether full stack or IP development for Quartus.
  • The current Intel FPGA programming language compilers (Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ and Intel® High Level Synthesis Compiler) will continue to be supported during the transition,
