AUSTIN, TEXAS, March 6, 2012—BOXX Technologies, the leading innovator of high-performance workstations and rendering systems, today announced the introduction of the 3DBOXX 8920 workstation which delivers an 80% application performance increase over its predecessor, the 3DBOXX 8520. The latest addition to their heralded 3DBOXX 8500/8900 workstation line, 8920 features dual, eight-core Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 series processors, along with a host of other technology upgrades that boost overall performance for VFX artists, animators, designers, engineers, and other creative professionals.
“Our BOXX is better than their box,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development, in response to being asked what’s separates the workstation manufacturer from its competitors. “At BOXX, we understand the applications our customers employ to create, test, and modify their ideas. And we create optimized configurations using the latest Intel® Xeon® processors in order to provide the best possible user experience when dealing with complex simulations, rendering, and ray tracing applications.”
The 3DBOXX 8920 features up to 16 cores (32 threads) of high-powered, multitasking performance for 3D design, animation, rendering, visualization, VFX compositing, and more. Designed to accommodate multi-threading, multiple applications, and complex production pipelines, the new 8920 has also expanded to include additional memory and up to three NVIDIA GPUs. The result is faster performance for both CPU- and GPU-based rendering, simulation, and ray tracing tasks.
“We are very enthusiastic about BOXX’s new 3BOXX 8920 and its use of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family,” said Joe Curley, General Manager of Intel’s Professional Workstation Group. “This processor was designed to solve big problems fast – delivering the most compute capacity and bandwidth of any Intel® dual processor-based workstation. The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family is capable of powering complete design suites from ISV’s like Autodesk and SolidWorks. That means users can now seamlessly combine creation with analysis, simulation and ray tracing. We think with solutions like the 3BBOXX 8920 based on our Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 product family, users can potentially ask more ‘what ifs?’ with their design and make adjustments that may lead to optimal designs rather than just good ones.”
