PRESS RELEASE

3DBoxx 4170 Xtreme

Boxx Technologies has introduced the 3DBoxx 4170 Xtreme, a new, compact, professional workstation featuring an overclocked Intel Core i7 processor capable of running up to 4.3GHz, and Thunderbolt 2 technology. Thunderbolt is an I/O technology that supports high-res displays and high-performance data devices simultaneously through a single, compact port. Thunderbolt 2 provides substantial performance increases over its predecessor by increasing the bandwidth to 20Gbps, enabling significantly faster storage transfers for data intensive workflows, as well as simultaneous display and transfer of raw 4K video. Boxx is the only workstation manufacturer featuring Thunderbolt 2 in an overclocked system backed by a three year warranty. 3DBoxx 4170 is also available in a standard edition model.

The Thunderbolt 2 technology integrated into the 4170 Xtreme enables faster data transfers for backup, sharing, and editing, significantly reducing the time taken to complete tasks.  The rack-mountable, liquid-cooled Xtreme features a compact chassis ideal for space-constrained environments. The new workstation is also available with Nvidia Maximus technology which enables users to complete simulation or rendering plus visualisation simultaneously. The workstation is designed for engineering, architectural, visualisation, 3D animation, modelling, and motion media applications including Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks, Adobe CS6, and other applications.
