Boxx Technologies Debuts Single-processor Workstation

Austin, Texas - Boxx Technologies, maker of high-performance computing systems for visual effects (VFX), design professionals, and advanced visualization, has released the 3DBoxx 4850 Extreme Workstation. The 4850 Extreme is said to outperform dual Intel Xeon processor workstations from Apple, Dell, and HP when running professional compositing applications, and to rival their speed for professional 3D applications.
Powered by new Intel Core i7 technology running at 4GHz, the 3DBoxx 4850 Extreme has been engineered and equipped with features such as liquid cooling to withstand the rigors of intense digital content creation workflows.

BoxxLabs, the research and development arm of Boxx Technologies, posted benchmarks which reveal that for professional applications such as Autodesk 3ds Max with V-Ray and Autodesk Maya with mental ray, the 3DBoxx 4850 Extreme rivals the rendering speed and in-application interactivity of the fastest dual Intel Xeon processor workstations in the industry.

Intel Core i7 architecture with DDR3 provides outstanding memory bandwidth which allows the 4850 Extreme to rival and perhaps outperform the fastest dual Intel Xeon processor workstations for specific 2D compositing and image processing tasks in applications such as Autodesk Combustion, Adobe AfterEffects, and Photoshop.

Added to the performance benchmarks, the 3DBoxx 4850 Extreme provides high-performance solutions to budget-conscious creative professionals and studios.

With system-integrated design backed by Boxx Technical Support, the new 3DBOXX 4850 Extreme features the Microsoft Vista 64 operating system and offers digital artists and studios the benefit of true desktop rendering and multitasking with several creative software applications.
