BOXX Workstations Earn Certification and Raves Prior to SolidWorks World 2012

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 09, 2012 -- BOXX Technologies, the leading innovator of rendering systems and high-performance workstations, today announced that their 3DBOXX 3960 XTREME workstation has achieved CATIA® certification, joining an elite group of workstations certified by Dassault Systèmes to run its' CAD/CAM/CAE commercial software suite. BOXX, a maker of SolidWorks-certified BOXX workstations, is strategically partnered with Dassault Systèmes and designated as a SolidWorks Solution Partner.

"3DBOXX workstations are outstanding platforms for Dassault Systèmes software applications," said Nick Iwaskow, Senior Alliances and Partnership Manager, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks Corp. "As SolidWorks® software users themselves, BOXX relies on a wealth of knowledge and experience in order to develop professional hardware solutions that meet our exacting standards and result in a positive experience for the end-user."

Affordably priced, 3960 XT workstations are powered by a quad core, performance-enhanced, second generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor (4.5 GHz), making them the industry's fastest single socket workstations available for engineering and product design applications like CATIA, as well as other frequency driven applications. The 3960 XT delivers outstanding support for visualization, 3D animation, modeling, and motion media software and is part of the 3900 workstation series which has been the recipient of industry raves.

Recently, BOXX's 3970 XT was dubbed "smart, fast, affordable," and "incredible," by DE contributing editor David Cohn. His review revealed that after extensive testing the 3970 XT "... proved to be faster than any other single CPU-based system" ever tested and "rivaled the performance of some workstations equipped with two processors."

Jeff Rowe, MCADCafe contributing editor added: "On many levels this machine is a monster, and I mean that in a good way. Regardless of price, it's been a long time since I experienced a desktop engineering workstation of this caliber and quality. I highly recommend it because justifying its purchase is a no-brainer."

Featuring advanced liquid cooling and the ability to reach speeds of up to 4.5 GHz, the 3970 XT (like its 3960 counterpart) is the industry's fastest single socket solution available for engineering and product design software like SolidWorks®, as well as frequency driven applications like Autodesk® Revit®. In addition to the overclocked processor, its performance is further enhanced by the option of Intel Smart Response Technology whereby the system automatically loads the most requested files from the solid state drives (SSDs) rather than the slower hard drive. The result is faster booting and application loading, and accelerated performance.

The 3970 XT will headline a trio of the "world's fastest workstations" demonstrating SolidWorks software (booth #506) at the upcoming SolidWorks World 2012 in San Diego. SolidWorks World features the latest in 3D CAD technology from over 100 exhibitors, as well as networking and educational opportunities. BOXX is a silver sponsor of this year's event.

The BOXX booth will also host demonstrations of the 3DBOXX 4920 XTREME workstation featuring a performance-enhanced Intel® Core™ i7 processor (4.5 GHz) which delivers 50% more processing power for tasks like CPU-based rendering and simulation analysis, as well as the highest application interactivity and responsiveness among single processor workstations. This pair of single processor workstations will be joined by the dual processor, quad GPU 8550 XTREME, which features two performance-enhanced, Intel® Xeon® processors running at 4.3 GHz. Designed to accommodate multi-threading, multiple applications, and complex production pipelines, the 8550 XT delivers high-powered multitasking performance including desktop rendering.

In addition to the workstation demos at SolidWorks World, BOXX is also providing SolidWorks World attendees with two opportunities to win a free 3DBOXX 3970 XTREME. First, BOXX is co-sponsoring (with Dassault Systèmes DraftSight) the Dream Workstation Giveaway, a scratch ticket drawing open to conference attendees. In addition, BOXX is sponsoring the 3DBOXX Giveaway open to certified SolidWorks professionals and experts.
