Intel® Core™ 14th gen processors have arrived and are available now inside the BOXX flagship workstation, APEXX S3, it’s bigger, badder, beefier brethren, APEXX S4, and in the economical, entry level, APEXX E3. So what can you expect from Intel Core 14th gen processors? Here’s the rundown. 


Performance Hybrid Architecture 

Intel Core 14th gen processors feature up to eight Performance-cores (P-core) and up to 16 Efficient-cores (E-core) to deliver balanced single-thread and multi-threaded real-world performance. P cores are still the highest performing CPU core Intel has ever built and are optimized to handle single & lightly threaded tasks found in SOLIDWORKS, Revit, 3ds Max, Maya, Cinema 4D, and Adobe Creative Cloud. E cores are optimized for scaling highly threaded workloads and handling background tasks to minimize interruptions. 


Intel® Thread Director  

Intel Thread Director optimizes workloads by helping the OS scheduler intelligently distribute workloads to the optimal cores. Thread Director monitors the runtime instruction mix of each thread as well as the state of each core with nano-second precision which will allow certain tasks to use higher performing cores and give feedback to the OS for any workflow. What this means is that software developers will be able to tune the important tasks to always go to the higher performing cores, while de-emphasizing the background tasks to streamline the overall workflow. 


PCIe 5.0 

PCIe 5.0 provides fast access to discrete graphics, storage, and peripheral devices with up to 16 PCI Express 5.0 lanes. With BOXX APEXX Intel Core –based workstations, this means you’ll have more connection options than ever before. The bandwidth for each PCIe 5.0 lane is 4 GB/s, so, at 4 GB/s per lane, if you use a PCI-Express 5.0 x16 device, it would have up to 64 GB/s of bandwidth available to it. 


Thunderbolt™ 4  

Intel Core 14th gen processors also feature Thunderbolt 4 as a standard component, providing 3D modelers, animators, VFX artists, and other media & entertainment pros the connectivity they need without occupying a PCIe slot. 


DDR-5 Memory

With two memory channels, DDR-5 memory technology inside Intel Core 14th gen processors supports fast frequencies, high bandwidth and throughput, leading to enhanced workflow and productivity. In practical applications, you get double the memory bandwidth of DDR4 with lower power consumption. Memory intensive software tasks (3D tools, video/photo editing, etc.) allow for higher resolution manipulation. 


Performance Tuned for Demanding Applications 

Lastly, the 24-core, Intel Core processors inside the liquid-cooled APEXX S3 and S4 are performance tuned up to 6.1GHz, and the system is available with up to two NVIDIA RTX Ada Generation GPUs, 192GB of RAM, and backed by a 3-year warranty, including legendary BOXX Technical Support.  

And…remember that these BOXX APEXX workstations rock for rendering, particularly the S-Class which excel in V-Ray, Octane Render, Lumion, Blender, and Pixar’s RenderMan. So, if you think it’s time to upgrade your workstation in order to meet the demands of the latest software apps, you’re right. BOXX is shipping APEXX S3, APEXX S4, and APEXX E3 with Intel Core 14th gen processors now. To configure yours, visit , chat, or call 877.877.BOXX.
