BOXX Takes the Lead on Virtual Solutions and More at Autodesk University 2016

GoBOXX MXL VR Showcases Next Gen Virtual Reality While Pro VDI™ Preserves Bare Metal Workstation Performance in a Virtual Environment

AUSTIN, TEXAS, Nov. 14, 2016—BOXX Technologies, the leading innovator of high performance workstations and rendering systems, today announced it will demonstrate Pro VDI,  the world’s first overclocked virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution at Autodesk University (AU) 2016 in Las Vegas, NV. BOXX exhibit booth #1817 will also feature GoBOXX MXL VR,  BOXX render nodes, and BOXX APEXX workstations hosting both Autodesk modeling and GPU rendering demonstrations including NVIDIA Iray. Held at The Venetian, Nov. 15-17, Autodesk University welcomes design professionals from around the world to attend classes, keynotes, exhibits, product demonstrations, and other events.

“BOXX is leading the way on virtual desktop infrastructure and virtual reality solutions,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of Marketing and Business Development. “Our Pro VDI and GoBOXX MXL VR demonstrations offer AU attendees a tremendous opportunity to experience these technologies firsthand and develop a clear understanding of how BOXX virtual solutions can benefit their organizations.”

The rack mounted Pro VDI 8401R-V fully supports Autodesk Revit, Maya, and other single-threaded, graphics-intense applications while relying on the same overclocked Intel® Core™ i7 processor found in BOXX APEXX desktop workstations. For immersive virtual reality, the compact, high-performance GoBOXX MXL VR mobile workstation also features an Intel Core i7 processor (4.0GHz), along with NVIDIA GeForce graphics and up to 64GB of RAM. Recommended for applications like 3ds Max and Revit, GoBOXX MXL VR is capable of handling complex 3D CAD assets for development, yet also includes the graphics performance necessary to drive demanding immersive VR experiences in product design or architecture.

In addition to VDI and VR, BOXX will showcase a variety of APEXX workstations and GoBOXX mobile workstations, as well as the renderPRO 2 dedicated rendering node. The ultra compact APEXX 1 will host Revit, 3ds Max, Maya, and Inventor demos, while APEXX 2 features a Revit to VR workflow and APEXX 4 demonstrates GPU rendering with 3ds Max and Revit.  APEXX 5, the world’s most advanced workstation, demonstrates rendering with NVIDIA Iray and renderPRO 2, the desk side rendering solution, highlights the advantages of offloading (3ds Max) rendering—a key component of The BOXX Workflow.  Rounding out the lineup is the ultra-thin and ultra-light GoBOXX 15 SLM notebook demonstrating various Autodesk applications.  

“For the world’s fastest, most reliable and innovative solutions, Autodesk users look to BOXX,” says Mohammad. “We truly understand what visualization professionals need to remove bottlenecks, accelerate their workflows, and increase productivity.”
