AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 10 -- BOXX Technologies, the leading authority on dedicated rendering and innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects, post production, animation, product design, and advanced visualization, today announced the results of a recent BOXX customer survey which indicate an overwhelming need for dedicated rendering solutions. The survey, designed to gauge the needs of creative professionals across a broad range of industries, revealed that 80 percent expressed a desire for faster and more efficient rendering; specifically, transferring their rendering from workstations to a dedicated rendering solution.
"Until recently, the only rendering choices available were the workstation, which can require endless hours of waiting, or a large, rack-mounted render farm which many independent artists, animators, architects, and engineers simply can't accommodate," said Shoaib Mohammad, director of marketing and business development at BOXX. "We offer an exceptional workstation rendering option with the 3DBOXX 8550 XTREME, as well as the render farm power of the renderBOXX and ROW: RenderFarm on Wheels, but for all those professionals out there in the middle -- and our survey indicates that this faction is enormous and growing, the clear option is renderPRO."
renderPRO, the world's first personal, dedicated rendering module is so compact that it fits on top of a workstation, yet so powerful that it features Intel Xeon processors to quickly render the most detailed images and animation. Available in three desk side models, cool and quiet renderPRO modules can be used individually or clustered together as an ideal render farm for small office environments. renderPRO will be featured in upcoming demonstrations at SC10, the supercomputing expo in New Orleans, Nov. 13-19, and at the Autodesk University 2010 conference and exhibition, Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
"BOXX is making rendering simple and personal -- easy set up, no server room, no IT, and no budget approval," says Mohammad. "renderPRO puts dedicated rendering at your fingertips, and rendering decisions back in the hands of the artist."

In a recent solicitation, the NSF laid out needs for furthering its scientific and engineering infrastructure with new tools to go beyond top performance, Having already delivered systems like Stampede and Blue Waters, they're turning an eye to solving data-intensive challenges. We spoke with the agency's Irene Qualters and Barry Schneider about..
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
The Xeon Phi coprocessor might be the new kid on the high performance block, but out of all first-rate kickers of the Intel tires, the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) got the first real jab with its new top ten Stampede system.We talk with the center's Karl Schultz about the challenges of programming for Phi--but more specifically, the optimization...

At some point in the not-too-distant future, building powerful, miniature computing systems will be considered a hobby for high schoolers, just as robotics or even Lego-building are today. That could be made possible through recent advancements made with the Raspberry Pi computers.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
