New 3DBOXX 3970 XTREME: Pick of The Week for Desktop Engineer!

BOXX Technologies are bringing a new workstation to the market that aims to boost processing speeds and accelerate workflow. This unique product is kitted out with 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor as well as Intel Smart Response Technology, a combination you can’t get elsewhere. It is currently the fastest single socket workstation on the market, with incredible speeds of up to 4.5 GHz. The latest addition to the 3DBOXX XTREME workstations line, it is designed to offer exceptional support for visualisation, modelling, 3D animation and motion media applications.

Anthony J. Lockwood, Editor at Desktop Engineering, has made this workstation his ‘Pick of the Week’. In his article last week he discusses some of the unique qualities that impressed him most. There is an automated function available as a result of the Intel Smart Response Technology that copies your frequently used files from the 3970 XTREME’s hard disk drive to its solid state drive. Files on the SSD now boot more quickly and applications like SolidWorks®, Autodesk® Revit, CATIA® (and all other frequency driven applications) load a lot faster.

He also commends how BOXX Technologies allow you to customise the machine around your needs, while providing you with all the expansion slots, ports and drive bays needed to make it possible. With the 3970 XTREME workstation there is the potential to add 32GB memory, select the graphics accelerator that suits you, and increase storage.

Architects, engineers, and product designers who would like SSD storage performance with HDD capacity at an affordable price, will find it in the 3DBOXX 3970 XTREME. At the moment this machine is the only reliable solution on the market that saves money, time and increases productivity.

  • Pete:

    The processor is overclocked and liquid cooled. Dell don't offer this, and if you did it yourself you'd invalidate your warranty.

    Also, the Intel SRT isn't yet available on Dell's workstations.

  • Tomas:

    Did you made any comparing or benchmarks against the Dell Precision Workstation? If you tell that it is the "fastest single socket workstation" iam just curious :)
