Boxx Breaks 5.0GHz Clock Speed Barrier With Special Edition Workstation

AUSTIN, TX — Boxx Technologies (, the maker of high-performance computer workstations, rendering systems and servers, has introduced the Apexx Special Edition (SE), one of the world’s fastest workstations, featuring a professionally overclocked Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition processor capable of reaching 5.0GHz across all six of its cores. In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Intel 8086 (the processor that launched x86 architecture), Intel provided Boxx with a limited number of the exclusive, high performance CPUs, which are well suited for CAD, 3D modeling and animation workflows.
“The Apexx SE workstation extends far beyond the celebration of the 8086 anniversary,” says Shoaib Mohammad, Boxx VP of marketing and business development. “By integrating this special technology, we’re providing our customers with a unique opportunity to accelerate their workflows with historic Intel processing power they can’t get from the multinational, commodity PC manufacturers.”  

Available only while supplies last and custom-configured to accelerate Autodesk Revit, 3ds Max, Maya, Adobe CC, Cinema 4D, Solidworks, and a host of other professional applications, Apexx SE features a six-core, eigth generation Intel Core i7-8086K Limited Edition processor professionally overclocked to 5.0 GHz. Unlike PC gaming systems, the liquid-cooled Apexx SE sustains that frequency across all cores — even in the most demanding situations. 

Inside its compact, metallic blue chassis, the computationally dense Apexx S3 also supports up to three Nvidia or AMD Radeon Pro professional graphics cards and features solid state drives and 2600MHz DDR4 memory.

“As longtime Intel partners, Boxx is honored to be chosen to offer this state-of-the-art technology,” says Mohammad. “Lightly threaded 3D content creation tools are limited by the frequency of the processor, so a faster clock speed means more creating and less waiting. Our focus is trained on providing the best high performance solutions for our customers and Apexx SE embodies that commitment.”
