BOXX Introduces First FLEXX Product and More at GTC 2016

AUSTIN, TEXAS, April 5, 2016—BOXX Technologies, the leading innovator of high-performance computer workstations and rendering systems, today announced that FLEXX G2, the first product in a rack-mounted computing ecosystem ideal for graphics intense 3D content creation and compute, will debut in BOXX booth #631 at the 2016 GPU Technology Conference (GTC), April 4-7, in San Jose, CA. Featuring modular compute nodes for power users, BOXX FLEXX will allow IT departments to centralize hardware resources without sacrificing the performance essential to their organization’s creative professionals.

“At larger companies equipped with dedicated IT, the consolidation of hardware into a data center is the emerging trend,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development. “But for creative pros, virtualization is not always the best fit due to performance limitations and software overhead. BOXX FLEXX is the solution, enabling IT departments to advance towards centralization while maintaining the power and performance their creative teams require.”

FLEXX features all the power of BOXX workstations, rendering, and simulation products, with an easy-to-implement design allowing for IT consolidation. FLEXX will enable users to mix and match up to five modules in a single 4U shelf, all accessible via the 3D-focused technology of PCoIP. The FLEXX G2, an NVIDIA Tesla-based Intel® Xeon® module hosting up to two virtualized power users (each with a dedicated GPU) will demonstrate NVIDIA Iray. The FLEXX G2 and additional high performance FLEXX modules will be formally announced and ready to ship during Q2 2016.

BOXX booth #631 will also be home to APEXX 5R, a re-engineered, rack-mounted variation of the popular APEXX 5 tower, the most advanced workstation on the market. The liquid-cooled APEXX 5 can be custom-configured with a multitude of expansion cards, hard drives, memory, and CPU cores. Ideal for GPU rendering or driving multiple displays, APEXX 5R features dual Intel® Xeon® processors for up to 44 cores (88 threads), the most expansion slots of any professional workstation, and eight full-size hard drives. Rounding out the BOXX GTC demos is the APEXX 4 workstation featuring four liquid cooled, overclocked NVIDIA GTX Titan X GPUs for V-Ray RT rendering.

“For over 20 years, our customers have benefited from BOXX innovation, performance increases in processor speed, and the emergence of the GPU, as well as new features and applications all designed to help them get their jobs done faster,” says Mohammad. “Our demos at GTC 2016, especially the introduction of our first FLEXX module, are the next phase of that evolution coupled with another BOXX philosophy—never compromise on performance.”
