BOXX Technologies announced that its APEXX W5 workstation has achieved Autodesk Flame qualification, joining an elite group of systems recommended by Autodesk to run the advanced film and television visual effects software. BOXX is a leading manufacturer of Autodesk-recommended workstations, while Flame is the preferred application of production studios and post houses throughout the world.
“At BOXX, we are committed to helping VFX artists, animators, film editors, and other post professionals work faster and more efficiently,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of business development and services. “If you rely on Flame or other professional applications, APEXX W5 will help you increase productivity while dramatically improving completion times.”
The most advanced BOXX workstation platform, APEXX W5 features an 18-core Intel Xeon W-series processor for rapid workload loading and processing, while up to four NVIDIA® Quadro™ graphics cards provide unparalleled support for GPU-accelerated compute applications. Flame only utilizes two GPUs, making the custom-configurable W5 ideal, and with additional PCI-E slots, liquid cooling, and 512GB of system memory, it delivers high-powered performance for all Flame features from 3D visual effects, compositing, and conforming, to editing, color grading, and finishing. The high powered BOXX workstation also provides state-of-the-art performance for rendering, simulation, deep learning, and multi-display applications.
“We’re pleased to see the BOXX APEXX W5 workstation as a qualified Flame solution,” said Will Harris, Autodesk Flame Family Product Manager. “The W5 provides outstanding support for Flame’s rich list of features, enabling users to accelerate their post workflow, expand opportunity for more iterations, and meet critical project deadlines.”
