BOXX Announces Powerful New Dual Core Processor 64-Bit Workstations

New BOXX 7400 Workstations Deliver the Power of AMD Opteron Dual Core Processors for Outstanding System Performance and Reliability

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 28, 2005 -- BOXX Technologies, the leading workstation company offering systems that are as powerful as they are easy to integrate, announces the BOXX 7400 series of workstations featuring dual AMD Opteron™ Dual Core processors and NVIDIA® nForce® Professional Media and Communications Processors (MCPs).

BOXX 7400 workstations support Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition giving BOXX customers the ability to run 32- and 64-bit applications simultaneously, taking their creativity to new heights. With the addition of AMD Direct Connect Architecture, which lowers system latency, the Hypertransport™ bus, dual PCI Express x16 certified graphics for NVIDIA SLI™ technology and multi-GPU dual monitor support, the BOXX 7400 Series is BOXX's most powerful 64-bit workstation.

The NVIDIA nForce Professional MCPs offer an advanced PCI Express design for high performance and provide a comprehensive feature set for both single-GPU and multi-GPU workstations. NVIDIA also works hand-in-hand with the industry's leading workstation ISVs, ensuring that NVIDIA solutions maximize productivity for MCAD, DCC, and film and video applications.

"Multi-core processors represent a huge leap forward in application performance and business ROI for the creative professional," said Reese Gautschi, director of marketing, BOXX Technologies. "Customers will appreciate the ease of transition to visual computing applications that support Microsoft's x64 edition. Perhaps most importantly, they gain the advantage of more performance per watt, meaning cooler and quieter operation and up to 50% better rendering performance."

BOXX 7400 Workstations

BOXX workstations offer extreme performance, reliability and innovation and are optimized for all visual computing applications -- from 3D graphics and visual simulation to digital video and HD/HDV. Other features of the BOXX 7400 workstations include:

--  Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processors: dual-core AMD64 technology is a

    GPUs
    
--  Simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing capabilities
    
--  Expanded I/O options include SATA 3Gbps and storage for large datasets
    (up to 5TB internal),  multiple chassis options for expanded RAID protected
    storage and hotswap storage options) and much more
