Austin, Texas - Boxx Technologies, maker of dedicated rendering and high-performance computing systems for visual effects, animation, postproduction, product design, and advanced visualization, has released renderBoxx 10400. This latest addition to the company’s renderBoxx series is a dedicated rendering module available with up to four six-core Intel Xeon 5600 series processors, for a total of 24 cores of processing power. In addition to renderBoxx, Intel-based 3DBoxx workstations and other Boxx solutions are now available with the Intel Xeon 5600 processors.
Previous-generation 10300 five-module render farms featured 80 processing cores in a 4-rack unit space. The new 10400 increases the amount to 120 cores in that same space. RenderBoxx 10400 also carries the distinction of being the first dedicated rendering solution to feature solid-state drives for increased R/W performance, greater efficiency, and stability. In terms of throughput, the 24-core renderBoxx delivers up to 222MB per second.
“Workstation and rendering solutions based on the Intel Xeon 5600 are revolutionizing the pace of innovation in the media and entertainment industry,” says Anthony Neal-Graves, general manager of Intel’s Workstation Group Intel technology. “With 6 cores and 12 threads on each processor and bandwidth to move large files, the renderBoxx 10400 provides users with processing power and computing infrastructure to create action-packed 3D and high-powered visual effects faster than ever.”
