BOXX APEXX 2 + BOXX renderPRO 2
Ray trace rendering is arguably the most computationally intensive process in any product development workflow. It is highly multi-threaded so it absolutely hammers all of a workstation’s CPU cores. It is also extremely scalable, so doubling the number of cores can, in many cases, halve the render time. CAD software is very different in that it is a single threaded process, so the majority of tasks are performed on one CPU core. This means it thrives on a high frequency (GHz) CPU. Performance will not increase if you add more CPU cores. By dedicating a high GHz workstation to CAD and a dual Xeon box to rendering, designers can have optimised hardware for both processes.
Let's get you hooked up. Customize YOUR renderPRO 2:
The custom-designed, dual socket render node delivers high core counts and unmatched deskside CPU rendering/simulation.
- DUAL 8-core Intel® Xeon® 2.1GHz processors (16 total cores)
- 32GB DDR4-2133 memory
- 240GB SATA 6GB/s SSD
- Microsoft® Windows™ 10
The renderPRO 2 is a complete computer powered by dual Intel XEON processors and plenty of memory. We’ve stripped out all the unnecessary features and have boiled it down to what matters most: CPU core count. The renderPRO 2 was designed for 24/7 maximum workload operation, and to that end we’ve engineered a cooling setup that keeps it cool for reliable operation, yet quiet enough to sit on your desk. The all-aluminum chassis was designed to sit directly on an APEXX 4 and also allows it to be stacked several units high for a powerhouse desk side render farm solution.
Note: renderPRO is compatible with any PC workstation. You do not need a BOXX workstation in order to use renderPRO.
Purpose Built By Creative Professionals, For Creative Professionals
At BOXX we understand your workflow, the programs you use, and we design solutions from the ground up to run those programs in a way that deliver real results that keep you creating and not waiting. The renderPRO portable render farm is the only desk side personal rendering system and simulation solution designed for offloading computationally intensive tasks. Keep your workstation free to keep creating without bogging down your CPU. When combined with an overclocked workstation, your workflow will fly with maximum performance regardless of whether you’re bottlenecked by frequency or the number of cores.
Simple to Set Up, Easy to Use
renderPRO 2 requires only power and a network connection. That’s it. Once your renderPRO 2 is connected to your network, use the included BOXXView software to discover and take control. From there, you can remotely install your software and get to work. It really is that easy. Watch our comprehensive setup video and see for yourself.
MORE THAN JUST HARDWARE.
WE KNOW YOUR SOFTWARE, TOO!
BOXX Performance Specialists not only know hardware inside and out, they also understand the challenges that come with the advanced software you use in your everyday workflow! Whether you use Autodesk Revit or 3ds Max for modeling, V-Ray or Iray for rendering, SOLIDWORKS for simulation, or any other advanced computing software, one of our experts can walk you through the entire process, answer questions about your specific workflow, and address all those pesky pain points that cost you time and money. Ask anyone — you won't find real software experts with helpful advice at Dell, HP, or Apple.
