AUSTIN, TEXAS, February 16, 2010—BOXX Technologies, the leading authority on dedicated rendering and innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects, post production, product design, and advanced visualization, today announced the debut of the BOXX Bantam, a compact, high performance workstation designed for budget-conscious design professionals.
“In the past, if you ran a large studio of designers or CAD artists and your budget didn’t allow for a high-end workstation at every desk, you were stuck with off-the-shelf desktop models that are completely inferior for professional applications,” said Shoaib Mohammad, Director of Marketing and Business Development at BOXX. “Bantam is a real solution, built for professionals and featuring true BOXX workstation performance and unparalleled support—all at a very economical price point.”
The newly minted Bantam is capable of speeds up to 3.46GHz and has been thoroughly tested by BOXXlabs, the company’s research and development division, for compatibility and reliability with SolidWorks, Revit®, 3ds Max®, and other 2D/3D animation, modeling, visualization and motion media software applications. Bantam also features processor options (Intel® Core™ i7, Core™ i5, or Core™ i3) that accommodate the workflow and budget requirements of a variety of users, from product designers and engineers, to 3D artists and visualization pros. Other features include the option of Intel Core i5 or Core i3 integrated graphics, NVIDIA Quadro® FX 3800 or ATI® FirePro™ professional graphics cards, USB 3.0, the SuperSpeed bus that is faster than an external hard drive, and what BOXX enthusiasts refer to as “BOXX added value”.
“Bantam comes from the same professionals who design and build record-setting 3DBOXX workstations and renderBOXX solutions,” said Richard McGuinness, Business Development Manager at Escape Studios, a world-renowned CG academy that relies on BOXX systems. “You know you’ll have a workstation built and supported by the company that knows all about high performance hardware solutions and professional software applications. The BOXX name says it all.”
