Oracle has proposed a new Java project called Project Trinity that would investigate the idea of using hardware acceleration to speed bulk data processing with Streams. “Such calculations are prime candidates for leveraging enhanced data-oriented instructions on CPUs, such as SIMD instructions or offloading to hardware accelerators, such as the SPARC Data Accelerator co-processor,” said Oracle’s Karthik Ganesan.

Streams in Java 8 already allows developers to take advantage of multicore processors.

Votes on the new proposal are due back from Java community members by May 4.
