BOXX Technologies, a leading innovator of high-performance computer workstations, rendering systems, and servers, announced the new line of APEXX S-class workstations featuring the flagship APEXX S3. Purpose-built for 3D design, CAD, and motion media workflows requiring best-in-class CPU frequencies for lightly threaded applications, the compact APEXX S3 now features a 9th generation, eight-core Intel Core i7 or i9 processor (professionally overclocked to 5.1GHz) to support more heavily threaded applications as well.
“Creative professionals are faced with projects which once had a schedule of two and a half years from initial design to final product, but now have a delivery date of 15 months,” said Bill Leasure, BOXX VP of Marketing. “APEXX S3, along with the rest of our new S-class systems, enables users to meet those deadlines and stay ahead of the competition. One look at the benchmarks reveals the distinct advantage these workstations have over previous technology.”
Purpose-built to optimize Autodesk, SOLIDWORKS, Adobe CC, Cinema 4D, and other applications, the overclocked and liquid-cooled APEXX S3 sustains its 5.1GHz frequency across all cores—even in the most demanding situations. With increased storage and upgradability, as well as multiple NVIDIA® Quadro® or AMD® Radeon Pro™ graphics cards, S3 is also ideal for light GPU compute or virtual reality.
New to the S-class line is APEXX Enigma S3. Built to accelerate professional 3D applications, Enigma S3 is also configurable with 9th generation, eight-core Intel Core i7/i9 processors overclocked to 5.1GHz and up to three professional GPUs, making it perfect for workflows that include significant GPU rendering or GPU compute work. At Autodesk University 2018, the best-in-class workstation demonstrated Autodesk® Maya® and Arnold, but also offers professional grade performance for all 3D CAD, animation, motion media, and rendering applications including Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Revit®, AutoCAD®, and SOLIDWORKS.
The compact APEXX S3 and Enigma S3 are joined by APEXX S1, the world’s smallest professional workstation. S1 also features an overclocked, eight-core Intel Core i7 for 3D content creation, CAD design, and motion media, but with its ultra-compact chassis, is the solution for limited desktop space, an open environment where aesthetics are a high priority, or workflows where a graphics card is used primarily for display. Rounding out the S-class family is APEXX S4, a rack mount system designed for heavy rendering or GPU compute.
“BOXX systems are custom-configured to accelerate workflows and increase productivity,” said Leasure. “When you consider how the new APEXX S-class performance increases will benefit creative professionals over the course of a day, week, month, or year, that’s the true definition of ROI.”
