BOXX Rendering and Multi-GPU Workstation Demos Abound at SIGGRAPH 2013

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/23/13 -- BOXX Technologies, the leading innovator of high-performance workstations and rendering systems, today announced that their multi-GPU 3DBOXX workstations and renderPRO desk side rendering systems will be demonstrating in BOXX booth #659, and throughout other locations, at SIGGRAPH 2013. Held at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, July 21-25, SIGGRAPH is the premier event for computer graphics and interactive techniques. The BOXX booth demonstrations, featuring experts from Autodesk and Chaos Group (among others), will showcase creation software like 3ds Max and Mudbox, as well as rendering applications V-Ray, Luxion KeyShot, and Octane Render.

"BOXX is committed to providing the world's fastest, most reliable, and most innovative hardware solutions," said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development. "Our SIGGRAPH demos, conducted by leading experts, will reflect that level of commitment as we offer Autodesk, KeyShot, V-Ray, and Octane Render users the opportunity to experience how those applications are supposed to run."

3DBOXX 8980 XTREME, the centerpiece of the 3ds Max and Mudbox demos led by Autodesk's Gary M. Davis and Craig Barr, is the world's fastest dual Intel® Xeon® workstation. Liquid-cooled and overclocked, XTREME (4+ GHz in turbo mode), features sixteen processing cores and up to two NVIDIA GPUs. Designed for 2D/3D, VFX compositing, simulation, rendering, video editing, DI, and more, XTREME enables users to design on the desktop while images render in the background. It also allows for multiple, complex project files to be open simultaneously.

3DBOXX 8950, the industry's leading multi-GPU workstation, will demonstrate Octane Render, as well as CPU/GPU V-Ray rendering hosted by Chaos Group's Konstantin Gaytandzhiev. Featuring dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2600 series processors and up to sixteen processing cores, the liquid-cooled 3DBOXX 8950 includes up to four dual-slot add-in graphics, coprocessor, or accelerator cards (NVIDIA® Maximus technology) plus an additional three PCI-E slots. The SIGGRAPH demo system will feature three NVIDIA Tesla GPUs, as well as the new NVIDIA Quadro K6000 graphics card featuring 12 GB of memory, 2880 CUDA cores, 288 GB/s memory bandwidth, and 3820 x 2160 max resolution. 3DBOXX 8950 is optimized for advanced visualization, simulation, and computation.

BOXX demos also include the redesigned, sixteen-core renderPRO, the world's first personal, dedicated rendering solution for 3D graphics, animation, and compositing. Requiring no server room or IT personnel, the easily configurable renderPRO provides dedicated rendering at the desk side. The BOXX booth is rounded out by a pair of 3DBOXX 4100 series workstations.

Throughout SIGGRAPH 2013, BOXX solutions can also be found at various exhibitor booths including Intel (#201) with 3DBOXX 8980 XTREME and renderPRO demonstrating KeyShot, PNY(#731) showcasing 3DBOXX 4120 with an NVIDIA Quadro K6000 for V-Ray RT demos, Trinity Animation (#110A) with 3DBOXX 8950 demonstrating V-Ray, and Imagination Technologies (#351) with 3DBOXX 8920 demonstrating Visualizer for 3ds Max and Maya on their Caustic Series2 raytracing acceleration board. At the SideFX booth #557, 3DBOXX 4920 XTREME, the world's most powerful single processor workstation, featuring an overclocked six core, Intel® Core™ i7 processor (up to 4.5 GHz), liquid cooling, and up to four NVIDIA GPUs, will demonstrate Houdini's new Houdini Engine Technology.

"You'll find BOXX solutions throughout SIGGRAPH because we understand professional visualization applications and workflows," said Mohammad. "Our expertise enables us to produce optimized configurations that provide the best possible user experience when dealing with complex simulations, rendering, and raytracing."
