BOXX Introduces Next Generation Workstation with 8th Gen Intel at Autodesk University 

AUSTIN, TEXAS, Nov. 9, 2017 -- BOXX Technologies, a leading innovator of high-performance computer workstations, rendering systems, and servers, today announced that the new APEXX S3 workstation, featuring an overclocked, 8th generation, Intel Core i7  processor, will debut Nov. 14-16 inside BOXX booth #E200 at Autodesk University in Las Vegas, NV. Along with the immediate availability of the new Intel “Coffee Lake” processor, BOXX is unveiling the workstation in a next generation chassis—as well as a new APEXX workstation nomenclature based upon the Intel scalable processor platform.

“Creative professionals shouldn’t have to wait to access the latest technology,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development. “So BOXX is once again taking the lead by introducing APEXX S3, a groundbreaking, state-of-the-art workstation designed to accelerate 3ds Max, Revit, Inventor, Maya, and other creative application workflows.”

APEXX S3 replaces the BOXX flagship workstation, APEXX 2 2403, and features the latest Intel® Core i7 processor overclocked to 4.8 GHz. The liquid-cooled system sustains that frequency across all cores—even in the most demanding situations. 8th generation Intel processors offer a significant performance increase over previous Intel technology and BOXX is the only workstation manufacturer making the new micro architecture available now, as well as professionally overclocked and backed by a three-year warranty. BOXX also removed unused, outdated technology (like optical drive bays) in order to maximize productive space. Inside its new, compact, industrial chassis, the computationally dense APEXX S3 supports up to two dual slot NVIDIA or AMD Radeon Pro professional graphics cards, an additional single slot card, and features solid state drives and faster memory at 2600MHz DDR4.

At Autodesk University, the best-in-class APEXX S3 will demonstrate Autodesk Revit, 3ds Max and Inventor, but the workstation also offers professional grade performance for all 3D CAD, animation, motion media, and rendering applications. In addition to the APEXX S3, AU attendees will have an opportunity to see the GoBOXX SLM VR mobile workstation running an architectural virtual reality demo with an HTC Vive using Iris VR Prospect software. The BOXX booth is also home to other APEXX workstation models including the ultra-compact APEXX 1, the powerful APEXX 4, and the unparalleled APEXX 5.

“For the world’s fastest, most reliable Autodesk-certified solutions and next generation performance arriving today, look to BOXX,” says Mohammad. “We’re the only hardware provider that truly understands precisely what creative professionals need to create, test, and perfect their ideas.”
