Well, I'm sure you are very proud.

What is this, is it even in Java, and why should we care?

I am rather interested in how you determined that this program
(it is a program, right?) needs an eight-core CPU.

Care to share?

But don't share here if the program isn't written in Java.

It's Java, albeit pretty horrible Java - Exceptions are quietly swallowed,

Good news. Then it's on topic.

everything is public, no comments, and the parts of the program I looked at
look like one giant race condition, where bugs are treated with the good
old "sleep and retry in a moment" method.

I could also find no indication that this program would need a special kind
of CPU, other than it spawning 16 ThreadS. My best guess is that this is a
port of a C program by someone who doesn't understand Java very well yet,
and probably never programmed for a living.

So let's punt back to the OP: What would you like from us with regard to
your post?

Are you looking for comments? Advice?
