AUSTIN, TX — Boxx Technologies (www.boxxtech.com) has introduced the 3DBoxx 8920 workstation, which delivers an 80 percent application performance increase over its predecessor, the 3DBoxx 8520. The 8920 features dual, eight-core Intel Xeon E5-2600 series processors, along with a host of other technology upgrades that boost overall performance for VFX artists, animators, designers, engineers, and other creative professionals.
“At Boxx, we understand the applications our customers employ to create, test, and modify their ideas,” says Shoaib Mohammad, Boxx VP of marketing and business development. “And we create optimized configurations using the latest Intel Xeon processors in order to provide the best possible user experience when dealing with complex simulations, rendering, and ray tracing applications.”
The 3DBoxx 8920 features up to 16 cores (32 threads) of high-powered, multitasking performance for 3D design, animation, rendering, visualization, VFX compositing, and more. Designed to accommodate multi-threading, multiple applications, and complex production pipelines, the new 8920 has also expanded to include additional memory and up to three Nvidia GPUs. The result is faster performance for both CPU- and GPU-based rendering, simulation, and ray tracing tasks.
“We are very enthusiastic about Boxx’s new 3Boxx 8920 and its use of the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family,” notes Joe Curley, GM of Intel’s professional workstation group. “This processor was designed to solve big problems fast – delivering the most compute capacity and bandwidth of any Intel dual processor-based workstation. The Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family is capable of powering complete design suites from ISV’s like Autodesk and SolidWorks. That means users can now seamlessly combine creation with analysis, simulation and ray tracing. We think with solutions like the 3DBoxx 8920 based on our Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family, users can potentially ask more ‘what ifs?’ with their design and make adjustments that may lead to optimal designs rather than just good ones.”
