Austin, Texas - Boxx Technologies, an innovator in
high-performance computing systems for visual effects, post production,
graphic design, and advanced visualization, today announced that Boxx workstations will be available with
the new Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. Featuring multiple
improvements suggested by actual users, Windows 7 directly benefits
digital artists who rely on professional 3D/2D and motion graphics
Windows 7 offers virtually universal compatibility with existing applications and hardware, and provides support for the high-performance features found in Boxx workstations. It helps hardware reach its full performance potential, resulting in better productivity for digital artists and designers. Improved memory management enhances multitasking capabilities and improves system interactivity when working with large scenes, projects, and data sets, while improved multitasking and thread management keep artists and designers more productive when working with multiple, simultaneous scenes, projects, and files. Improved file search and launch functionality allow users to locate and open files (and projects) quickly across local network and 3DBoxx storage locations, and optimized functionality for new high-performance storage helps to maintain maximum health and performance of SSD hard drives for long-term reliability and performance.
Windows 7 will be available with all Boxx workstations, including the 3DBoxx 4850 Extreme (the fastest Intel Core i7 based workstation on the market), 3DBoxx 8500 (featuring Intel Xeon processor options resulting in 16 virtual cores for multitasking), and GoBoxx (the industry’s fastest mobile workstation), which allows digital artists to create outside of studio confines without sacrificing professional workstation performance.
