BOXX Workstation Tops All in DE Magazine Benchmarking

AUSTIN, TEXAS, January 7, 2011—BOXX Technologies, the leading authority on dedicated rendering and innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects, animation, post production, design, and visualization, today announced that the 3DBOXX 4860 XTREME  workstation earned the highest scores across the board in SPECviewperf benchmark tests conducted by Desktop Engineering (DE) magazine. DE is a leading information resource for engineering professionals in all major manufacturing and process industries who rely on computer software and systems. SPEC is a non-profit corporation which develops high-performance computer benchmark suites and also reviews and publishes submitted results from its member organizations and other benchmark licensees.

In his review of the 3DBOXX 4860 XTREME entitled, “Bragging Right”, DE contributing editor David Cohn details how the XTREME workstation delivered “incredible performance” for Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Autodesk® Maya®, and a host of other professional software applications, easily outperforming professional workstations from HP, Dell, and Lenovo.

“On the SPECviewperf test, which focuses solely on graphics performance, the results were nothing short of incredible,” Cohn wrote in the January 2011 issue. “The 3DBOXX 4860 XTREME, equipped with the NVIDIA® Quadro® 5000, not only beat every system we’ve ever tested, it demolished them, with some results more than two times faster than those previously recorded.”

The two GPU 4860 XTREME and four GPU 4880 XTREME, performance-enhanced solutions from BOXX’s heralded 3DBOXX 4800 Series, are the fastest single processor workstations in the world. With an over-clocked, six-core Intel® Core™ i7 processor capable of reaching 4.15 GHz, the liquid-cooled 4860 XTREME provides high-powered, multitasking performance for 3D/2D animation, modeling, compositing, visualization and motion media applications. XTREME’s inclusion of NVIDIA Quadro 5000 GPUs offers groundbreaking performance, superior image quality, and a fully integrated and optimized workflow across all professional applications, enabling digital artists to create detailed designs in less time.   

“Record-setting performance is critical to our customers because speed saves time, saves money, and increases productivity,” said Shoaib Mohammad, Director of Marketing and Business Development at BOXX. “That’s why BOXX remains the professional’s choice. Our industry leading expertise and innovative integration of enterprise class components consistently produces solutions that test as the fastest in the world.”

In addition to the top rated single processor 3DBOXX 4800 Series, BOXX’s desktop workstation line also includes the dual processor 3DBOXX 8500 Series, home of the 3DBOXX 8550 XTREME, the fastest workstation in the world. 8550 XTREME was showcased at the recent Autodesk University in Las Vegas and features dual, performance-enhanced, Intel® Xeon® 5600 Series processors and up to four NVIDIA GPUs. Designed to accommodate multi-threading, multiple applications, and complex production pipelines, 8550 XTREME is capable of reaching 4.2 GHz and features up to 12 cores of multitasking performance for design, animation, rendering, visualization, VFX compositing, video editing, and DI.

In the BOXX workstation line-up, the record-setting 3DBOXX systems are joined by GoBOXX, the world’s fastest mobile workstation (featuring an Intel Core i7 desktop level processor) and 3DBOXX 8500R, a remote access workstation featuring PCoIP® technology. Not limited to workstations, BOXX is equally focused on dedicated rendering with state-of-the-art solutions like renderBOXX, the professional dedicated rendering system, renderPRO, the personal desk side rendering option, and ROW: RenderFarm on Wheels, the world’s first turn key render farm.
