BOXX Multi-GPU Workstation With NVIDIA Maximus Demos at GPU Technology Conference

BOXX Multi-GPU Workstation With NVIDIA Maximus Demos at GPU Technology 
Conference 
AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 03/18/13 --  BOXX Technologies, the
leading innovator of high-performance computer workstations and
rendering systems, today announced that its multi-GPU 3DBOXX 8950
workstation featuring NVIDIA(R) Maximus(TM) technology will
demonstrate V-Ray in PNY booth #411 at the 2013 GPU Technology
Conference (GTC), March 18-21, in San Jose, CA. The rendering
demonstration will be hosted by Lon Grohs, VP of Business Development
at Chaos Group. BOXX also announced that in addition to the demo, a
number of industry experts who rely on BOXX systems will be featured
throughout the conference. 
On Tuesday, Scalable Display Technologies president and 3DBOXX 8950
user Rajeev Surati will join Walt Disney concept designer Bei Wang
for a discussion regarding the use of Warp and Blend API in
renderers, while on Wednesday, Cosmic Motors vehicle designer Daniel
Simon (TRON: Legacy, Captain America), will introduce his latest
works created on a 3DBOXX 8550 XTREME.  
Wednesday sessions will also include presentations from Pixar senior
software engineer Dirk Van Gelder and Chaos Group co-founder Vladimir
Koylazov -- both users of GoBOXX mobile workstations. Van Gelder's
session focuses on open source GPU rendering of subdivision surfaces
while Koylazov turns his attention to a new paradigm for
photorealistic raytraced rendering on NVIDIA GPUs.  
Lastly, MotoCzysz senior engineer Nick Schoeps, who relies on
overclocked 3DBOXX XTREME workstations (4920XT and 3960XT), will
present Culture of Speed: Designing the Champion E1PC Electric
Superbike in Three Months. 
"The fact that these leading GTC presenters rely on our systems is a
clear indication that BOXX innovation is allowing professionals to
work faster and more efficiently across a variety of industries,"
said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development.
"The V-Ray demonstration in particular will the show that our
integration of multiple GPUs and NVIDIA Maximus in the 3DBOXX 8950,
has enabled users of Autodesk, Dassault, NVIDIA iray(R), V-Ray, and
other applications to design and render simultaneously."  
Designed to accommodate multi-threading and multiple applications
used in advanced visualization, simulation, and computation
workflows, the liquid-cooled 3DBOXX 8950 also includes dual Intel(R)
Xeon(R) E5-2600 Series processors (16 cores, 32 threads) and up to
512GB of system memory. Among all its advantages however, the
system's multi-GPU capability has become its most talked about
feature.  
3DBOXX 8950 includes up to four dual slot add-in graphics,
coprocessor, or accelerator cards (NVIDIA Maximus, Intel Xeon,
Phi(TM), etc.) as well as three additional PCI-E slots. Multiple
slots accommodate varied configurations and provide capacity for
advanced multi-card configurations. The 8950 workstation at GTC will
feature an NVIDIA Quadro(R) K5000 card and three NVIDIA Tesla(R) K20
cards. The Tesla cards perform photorealistic rendering or
engineering simulation computation, freeing CPU resources to
accomplish I/O, running the operating system, and other tasks. The
Quadro GPU is dedicated to powering complete, interactive design.
Maximus also helps users reduce the need for expensive prototypes by
moving their workflow to simulation-driven design.  
"With NVIDIA Maximus technology on BOXX workstations, users can
multitask more effectively and increase their productivity," said
Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions Group, NVIDIA.
"We've worked with BOXX to provide customers with technology that
will help them work faster than ever before, so they can unlock their
creativity."
