BOXX(R) Technologies Releases Next Generation Special Edition 3DBOXX(R) - Maximizing Performance of Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Extreme Processors

Published: 30 April, 2008
BOXX Technologies Inc., an innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects (VFX) and design professionals, today released a Special Edition 3DBOXX workstation that delivers unmatched dual-processor workstation performance by maximizing the power of two Intel Core 2 Extreme processors. Benchmarks computed by BOXX Labs indicate 23.2 percent more performance on Cinebench 10 for the Special Edition compared to the world-record setting 3DBOXX 8400SE.

The Special Edition 3DBOXX is designed specifically for digital artists who push the limits of dual-processor architectures because of the frequency at which they perform compute-intensive tasks.

"Once again, BOXX Labs has demonstrated its ability to deliver jaw-dropping performance in a dual-processor workstation, this time by seizing a unique opportunity to optimize the processing power of two Intel Core 2 Extreme processors. The latest Special Edition 3DBOXX remains cool and quiet thanks to a unique, high efficiency liquid cooling solution," said Francois Wolf, director of marketing at BOXX Technologies.

Digital artists who are frequently called upon to create complex effects such as simulated water, rain, or fog will find this new Special Edition perfect for frequent rendering. Other effects such as the simulation of hair or fur, or muscle and skin behavior, also require the highest performance in order to maintain a fluid level of interactivity between the artist or designer and the software. The new Special Edition 3DBOXX provides the best possible performance level within the 3DBOXX enclosure.

"The performance and energy efficiency of Intel's Core 2 Extreme processor has provided BOXX the ideal computing platform for its Special Edition 3DBOXX workstation with the power for special applications used in animation, visual special effects and design," said Boyd Davis, general manager of Intel's Server Products Group Marketing.
