3DBOXX 4150 Xtreme

Boxx Technologies, a provider of high-performance workstations and rendering systems, has announced three new products: the GoBOXX 2725 mobile workstation; the 3DBOXX 4150 Xtreme workstation, which is Dassault Systèmes-certified; and renderPRO a personal dedicated rendering system.

The liquid-cooled 3DBOXX 4150 Xtreme is an overclocked workstation featuring a 4th generation, Intel Core i7 processor capable of running up to 4.3 GHz.  XTREME is certified for CATIA and thus joins the group of workstations tested and designated by Dassault Systèmes to run its CAD/CAM/CAE commercial software suite.

The GoBOXX 2725, a mobile workstation featuring a twelve core, Intel Xeon desktop processor, offers similar performance to a desk-side workstation, enabling engineers and designers to move beyond the confines of the office and work from anywhere.

The final product is the 16-core renderPRO, the company's first personal, dedicated rendering solution for 3D graphics, animation, and compositing. Requiring no server room or IT personnel, the easily configurable renderPRO provides dedicated rendering at the desk side.
