More Cores. New Chassis.

This week Intel launched their new Ivy Bridge E processors. This update opens up a wide variety of configuration options for users of multi-threaded applications. BOXX is now offering single CPU systems with up to 12 cores and dual CPU workstations and render nodes with up to 24 cores.

For visual effects artists, this means more cores. More cores mean more buckets and more buckets mean completing more frames in less time.

For engineers this means decreased simulation times and faster visualization of complex data sets.

New Chassis Design
CPU options aren't the only thing getting refreshed at BOXX this week. As many of you know, BOXX designs and builds all of our custom chassis right here in Austin, TX. This week we unveiled a new design that replaces several of our single CPU and dual CPU workstations.

The new chassis design is currently implemented in the following models:
3DBOXX 49203DBOXX 49253DBOXX 8920 

New  features include:
Liquid Cooling Only
1x External Bay
4x 3.5 Internal Bays (8 2.5)
2x 2.5 Internal Bays
9x I/O Slots
Rack mount Optional
4U: 6.85"w x 18"h x 20.2"d
