LOS ANGELES — Austin, TX-based Boxx Technologies (www.boxx.com), an innovator of high-performance computer workstations, rendering systems, and servers, is at SIGGRAPH 2017 with Apexx workstations demonstrating Chaos Group’s V-Ray RT, Adobe Premiere Pro, Autodesk 3ds Max, and other professional applications. In addition to the demos, the company is inviting Mac and PC users to switch to Boxx by sampling an Apexx 4 workstation and experiencing how it will accelerate their workflows.
“Too many graphic designers, motion media editors, VFX artists, and animators struggle with inadequate systems for creative and rendering applications,” says Shoaib Mohammad, Boxx VP of marketing and business development. “So we’re inviting them to see for themselves how Boxx powers professional applications to run at peak performance and what that will mean for their business productivity and ROI.”
As the most versatile Boxx workstation, the SIGGRAPH model Apexx 4 features dual Quadro P5000 graphics cards and a ten-core Intel Core i7 professionally overclocked to 4.3GHz, making it well suited for Premiere Pro and other motion media editing applications. The Apexx 4 is joined by the flagship Boxx workstation, Apexx 2, configured with an Nvidia Quadro P4000, as well as an Intel Core i7 professionally overclocked to 4.8GHz. The Apexx 2 is demonstrating Autodesk 3ds Max modeling and animation software.
The Boxx booth is also hosting a high-powered rendering demonstration of the new, VCA-certified Apexx 8R featuring eight Nvidia Quadro P6000 GPUs. The rack-mounted system provides a high level of expandability, mobility within deployment, and performance for design and production workflows.
Apexx 1, one of the world’s smallest overclocked workstations (and featuring an Nvidia Quadro P1000 graphics card) is demonstrating Autodesk 3ds Max V-Ray rendering while connected to the Apexx 8R.
Rounding out the Boxx booth demonstrations is V-Ray RT running on the Apexx 5, the advanced workstation featuring up to four AMD ProDuo GPUs (eight GPUs total as the ProDuo has two GPUs in one dual slot enclosure). Two Intel Xeon processors (up to 44 cores/88 threads) compliment the most expansion slots of any professional workstation.
As an exclusive offer to SIGGRAPH attendees, Boxx is showcasing (and make available at a special sales price) the new, ultra-thin GoBoxx SLM VR powered by a VR Ready Nvidia Quadro P4000 with Max Q technology. At only 4.4 lbs., the GoBoxx SLM VR is an ideal platform for VR experiences on-the-go.
