New Overclocked, Eight-Core, BOXX APEXX Workstations Exceed 4GHz
AUSTIN, TEXAS, April X, 2015— BOXX Technologies, the leading innovator of high-performance computer workstations and rendering systems, today introduced the APEXX 2 3402 and APEXX 4 7402, two overclocked, eight-core, Intel® Core™ i7 processor workstations capable of exceeding 4GHz. Optimized for both single-threaded and multi-threaded tasks, the pair are ideal for 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and simulation.
“APEXX offers the best of both worlds,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development. “They alleviate the single-threaded bottlenecks found in Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Maya®, Revit®, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks, and other professional applications, while also providing 33GHz of aggregate frequency for faster rendering and simulation.”
While a stock Intel® Core™ i7 processor reaches 3GHz, the safely overclocked APEXX models maintain a 4.125GHz guaranteed speed throughout the life of their warranty. The result is vastly improved viewport performance (panning, zooming, and manipulating 3D objects), significantly faster opening/ closing of assemblies, and quicker rebuilds—single-threaded tasks bound by the frequency of the processor, not the number of cores or GPUs. For multi-threaded tasks like rendering and simulation which do require multiple cores, the APEXX workstations’ eight-cores and 33GHz of aggregate frequency prove to be an ideal solution. BOXXlabs benchmarks reveal that in many cases, aggregate frequency for rendering and simulation outperforms more costly ten-core Intel® Xeon®-based systems thanks to the overclocked eight-core’s 37.5% advantage over stock clocks.
“For users whose workflows require both high frequency and multiple cores, the dilemma has always been that with an increase in cores, a decrease in frequency follows,” says Mohammad. “At BOXX, we understand that VFX artists, animators, engineers, architects, and other creative pros can’t compromise workstation performance, so we produced the perfect solution— frequency where you need it and cores when it counts, all at a lower price point.”
The compact APEXX 2 3402 is available with up to two professional graphics cards and 32GB memory, while the APEXX 4 7402 can accommodate up to four professional GPUs and includes up to 64GB of system memory. Both workstations are liquid-cooled and feature a variety of storage options including SSDs for increased I/O performance.
