BOXX Technologies Releases the Ultimate Single Processor Workstation
January 18, 2009 10:40 pm
Powered by new Intel Core™ i7 technology running at 4GHz, the 3DBOXX4850 Extreme has been carefully engineered and equipped with features like liquid cooling in order to withstand the rigors of intense digital content creation workflows.
“For memory-intensive, CPU-heavy tasks such as 2D compositing, image processing and particle/fluid simulation, this machine absolutely dominates virtually all other single or dual CPU workstations we've tested to date—at ANY price point," said Shoaib Mohammad, Director of Marketing and Business Development at BOXX.
BOXXLabs, the research and development arm of BOXX Technologies, posted benchmarks which reveal that for professional applications like Autodesk® 3ds Max® with V-Ray® and Autodesk Maya® with mental ray®, the 3DBOXX 4850 Extreme rivals the rendering speed and in-application interactivity of the fastest dual Intel Xeon processor workstations in the industry.
Added to the performance benchmarks, the 3DBOXX 4850 Extreme sets a new standard for providing high performance solutions to budget conscious creative professionals and studios. Though it clearly equals and outperforms the Intel Xeon dual processor systems from Apple, Dell, and HP, 4850 Extreme is priced thousands of dollars below those systems.
“At BOXX, we provide solutions for our customers. In these economically challenging times, we chose to provide a workstation so powerful that it outperforms the competition, yet still fits into the budget of digital artists and studios,” said BOXX Sales Director, John Civatte.
With system integrated design backed by BOXX Technical Support, the new 3DBOXX 4850 Extreme features the Microsoft® Vista® 64 operating system and offers digital artists and studios the benefit of true desktop rendering and multitasking with several creative software applications.

I was interrupted before finishing my previous opinion... So, bottom line: Do I regret buying the BOXX? No. I still use to render my biggest file. I just don't touch it while it's rendering. Is the BOXX a nice rendering machine? Yes. Will it out-render any 'off the shelf' PC available at your local electronics retailer? Yes. Is it worth the money? That depends on what other resources you have available. Would I buy another one? No.
Same here pretty much. I have a BOXX 7400. It's fast, but has a huge issue with blowing out hard drives, especially with a RAID set up. I wiped out three drives when it was less than a year old. The issue in my case is in the nvidia chipset, but the WD drives BOXX supplied were more vunerable than most. I contacted tech support and ended up with one tech who did his best to let me know that I was a pain in his side and later another who was pretty terrific. I ended up purchasing seagates, re-setting up the raid with the good tech and have had no problems for a year. Do I love it when it runs well? Yes. But for the price and considering the fact that it's a workstation customized for what I do, I expect some compatibility testing and a certain amount of reliability. I sure didn't expect the expenditure of all new drives (4) and back-up external drives...just in case. Would I do it again? Probably not.
