AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/29/09 -- BOXX Technologies, an innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects (VFX), design professionals, and advanced visualization, today announced that the new 3DBOXX 4850 Extreme Workstation, the most powerful single processor workstation ever designed, is priced thousands of dollars less than comparably configured dual Intel® Xeon(TM) processor workstations from Apple®, Dell® and HP®.
Previously posted benchmarks from BOXXLabs, the research and development arm of BOXX Technologies, revealed that for many of the most common 3D design tasks and workflows, as well as 2D compositing and image processing, the 6 GB 3DBOXX 4850 Extreme outperformed the fastest 8GB dual Intel Xeon processor workstations in the industry.
Now, in addition to those stellar performance numbers, BOXX detailed cost analysis reveals that, in terms of price, the 4850 Extreme also bests these same Apple, Dell, and HP systems. Extreme is priced nearly $2000 below Dell's model, nearly $3000 below Apple, and $3400 below HP. Click here to view a BOXX cost comparison graph. (http://www.boxxtech.com/4850)
