AUSTIN, TX — Boxx Technologies (www.boxx.com), the provider of high-performance computer workstations, rendering systems and servers, has upgraded its Apexx W4 workstation with a new Intel Xeon W-3400 series processor. Boxx is one of the first hardware manufacturers to ship systems equipped with the powerful new single-socket CPU, which provides substantial performance increases over previous Intel Xeon W technology. The Apexx W4 is a versatile platform that’s purpose-built for visualization, simulation, rendering and other GPU-accelerated compute applications.
“We’re excited about the possibilities enabled by Boxx’s new Apexx W-Class workstations powered by our new Intel Xeon W workstation processors,” says Intel’s Roger Chandler, VP and GM, creator and workstation solutions, client computing group. “Intel’s newest Xeon workstation processors are designed to accelerate compute-intensive workflows, ensuring that creators’ professional software applications keep up with their demands both now and in the future.”
A new single socket solution featuring up to 56 cores, Intel Xeon W-3400 processors reach up to 4.8GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0. The CPUs are also equipped with 112 processor PCIe 5.0 lanes for more I/O throughput for networking, graphics and storage, along with 3rd Gen Intel Deep Learning Boost for accelerated AI performance.
In addition to the new Intel processor technology, the highly expandable and customizable Apexx W4 is available with a rackmount kit and features liquid-cooling, a 1600 watt power supply, up to 4TB of memory, and up to four Nvidia RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs, making it well suited for GPU-intensive workloads across media & entertainment and other industries.
In addition to the Apexx W4, the new 56-core Intel Xeon W-3400 processor will also power the Boxx Raxx W3, a rack-mounted platform that’s purpose-built to accelerate rendering and simulation in film editing and broadcast production. Raxx W3 is also configurable with up to four Nvidia RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs.
Lastly, the Intel Xeon processor family will be a key component of the Apexx W3 workstation, which is now equipped with a 24-core Intel Xeon W-2400 CPU and up to two Nvidia RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs.
“From visualization and simulation, to rendering, multi-display applications and beyond, our Apexx W-class systems deliver the pinnacle of performance you expect from Boxx,” says Bill Leasure, VP of marketing and sales at Boxx. “By working closely with Intel, integrating only enterprise class components and performing rigorous testing, Boxx is committed to providing ground breaking technology today that maximizes future customer productivity and ROI.”
