AUSTIN, Tex., May 14 – BOXX Technologies, a leading authority on dedicated rendering and an innovator in high-performance computing systems for product design, visualization, engineering, visual effects, and more, today announced that they will demonstrate their 3DBOXX workstation computers featuring NVIDIA® Maximus™ technology at the NVIDIA GPU Technology Conference, May 14-17 in San Jose, CA. NVIDIA Maximus technology enables engineers, designers, and other creative professionals to complete simulation or rendering plus visualization simultaneously on the same workstation. BOXX is one of a select group of workstation manufacturers certified by NVIDIA to integrate the technology into their products.
“In the past, content creation that employed both visual design and physical simulation often resulted in these tasks occurring on different systems or at different times,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development. “Our integration of NVIDIA Maximus technology enables users of Autodesk, NVIDIA iray®, SolidWorks, CATIA, Bunkspeed and other professional applications to design and render simultaneously resulting in a faster, seamless workflow essential to increasing productivity.”
3DBOXX workstations featuring NVIDIA Maximus technology combine the visualization and interactive design capability of NVIDIA Quadro® GPUs with the high-performance computing power of NVIDIA Tesla® C2075 GPUs into a single system. The Tesla companion processors automatically perform photorealistic rendering or engineering simulation computation. This frees CPU resources to accomplish I/O, run the operating system, and other tasks, while the Quadro GPU is dedicated to powering full-performance, interactive design. NVIDIA Maximus technology also helps users reduce the need for costly prototypes by moving their workflow to simulation driven design.
“Along with a reputation for being early adopters of the latest, industry-leading technology, BOXX has consistently demonstrated its dedication to helping users more effectively multitask and increase their productivity,” said Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions Group, NVIDIA. “By integrating NVIDIA Maximus into their workstations, BOXX is once again providing their customers with revolutionary technology that will help them create and work faster than ever before.”
NVIDIA Maximus technology is featured throughout a range of BOXX systems, including the Intel Core i7 based 3DBOXX 4920 series workstations (both standard and overclocked XTREME editions), the 3DBOXX 3960 XTREME (also an Intel Core i7 model), and the dual Intel Xeon processor 3DBOXX 8920. Detailed NVIDIA Maximus configurations, designed for specific workflows, are available on the BOXX Technologies website: http://www.boxxtech.com/solutions/maximus_solution.asp

The world's largest supercomputers, like Tianhe-2, are great at traditional, compute-intensive HPC workloads, such as simulating atomic decay or modeling tornados. But data-intensive applications--such as mining big data sets for connections--is a different sort of workload, and runs best on a different sort of computer.

The advent of low-power mobile processors and cloud delivery models is changing the economics of computing. But just as an economy car is good at different things than a full size truck, an HPC workload still has certain computing demands that neither the fastest smartphone nor the most elastic cloud cluster can fulfill.
