APEXX 8R – 8 GPUs, Blazing Fast Rendering

BOXX got its start building high-end workstations and render nodes for the visual effects industry. It’s in our blood. It’s what we do and we do it well. As many of you know, the available options for quality rendering engines continues to grow. New features and optimizations can help mitigate the demands of today’s demanding pipelines, but how do you cope with the ever increasing shot complexity that leads to unacceptably long render times?

In this article, we’ll take a look at the BOXX APEXX 8R and how GPU-accelerated rendering can drastically accelerate look development, increase refinement iterations and help you build more compelling visuals. Additionally, we’ll look at different use cases for the system and discuss performance benchmarks. Continue reading

APEXX 8R Boosting Solidworks Visualize

The BOXX APEXX 8R featuring 8X Nvidia Quadro P6000 GPUs will be on display at GTC in San Jose at the BOXX booth #423.

Which scenario would you want in a collaborative design review or have access to throughout the design process? Be sure to watch the video above in full screen HD.

The 2016 release of Solidworks included a new visualization tool called Visualize which enables designers to quickly and easily generate marketing quality renderings. In 2017, Solidworks Visualize added additional functionality with the announcement of PowerBoost. This feature allows the user to draw on the resources of a GPU accelerated network rendering server, or an Nvidia VCA, and stream the end result directly back to the end user’s viewport.
