Submission + - Project Sumatra: Accelerated Java using APUs and GPUs (java.net)

shreshtha writes: AMD has announced it is joining with Oracle Inc. to work on how Java can be accelerated by a mix of processor engines including graphics processor units (GPUs). AMD, Oracle and other members of the OpenJDK community are forming Project Sumatra to help bring heterogeneous computing capabilities to Java for server and cloud computing environments.

This primary goal of this project is to enable Java applications to take advantage of graphics processing units (GPUs) and accelerated processing units (APUs)--whether they are discrete devices or integrated with a CPU--to improve performance.
