Built for Speed: BOXX Solutions at SIGGRAPH 2009

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - August 4, 2009) - BOXX Technologies, an innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects (VFX), post production, graphic design, and advanced visualization, today announced that two of their systems, the GoBOXX and RTX, will be demonstrated in the Intel booth at SIGGRAPH 2009, the annual computer graphics conference held in New Orleans, Aug. 3-7. Like the 3DBOXX 8500 workstation (also available from BOXX), these high performance solutions rely on the latest Intel® Xeon® Processor series and are (or among) the top systems in their respective classes.

"The Intel Xeon Processor 5500 series has really changed the workstation market landscape by delivering the performance and bandwidth users demand to create and test new ideas faster than ever," said Anthony Neal-Graves, general manager of Intel's Workstation Group. "By offering these solutions, BOXX innovation and Intel workstation technology are taking visual computing to an entirely new level."

The 3DBOXX 8500 accommodates multi-threading, multiple applications, and complex production pipelines. Capable of reaching 3.46 GHz using Intel® Turbo Boost Technology, it provides digital artists with 16 virtual cores of high-powered, multitasking performance for 3D design, animation, rendering, and visualization applications, as well as VFX compositing, video editing and digital intermediate (DI) workflows.

The RTX workstation, engineered for high resolution motion media workflows, allows image manipulation and input/output of compressed and uncompressed HD, 2K, 4K, 2K stereo (and more), motion media files. It also supports digital intermediate (DI) tasks.

The industry's fastest mobile workstation, GoBOXX is available with either the Intel Xeon 3500 Processor series, or an Intel® Core™ i7 desktop processor. Running at 3.4GHz, both series deliver desktop workstation level performance. GoBOXX offers digital artists the opportunity to create outside of studio confines without sacrificing professional workstation performance, and supports multiple, simultaneous streams of uncompressed motion media for online finishing of video editing projects.
