BOXX introduces 12-core mobile workstation


BOXX Technologies has introduced the GoBOXX 2725, a new 12-core mobile workstation aimed at design visualisation, animation, modelling, and motion graphics.

The company claims that, with its Ivy Bridge Intel Xeon E5-2600 v2 processor, the 2725 is “likely more powerful than the desktop workstation you’re currently using”.

As a point of comparison, Dell’s current top-of-the-range Precision M6800 is a quad-core machine, while HP’s EliteBook 8770w comes with a dual-core processor as standard.

Powerful, but priced to match
Other, more standard, specs for the GoBOXX 2725 include a choice of Nvidia Quadro K5100M or GeForce GTX 780M mobile graphics cards, up to 32GB of 1,600MHz DDR3 RAM and three 2.5″ SATA hard drives.

The mobile has a 17″ screen, and runs natively at full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution.

You will definitely pay for the power, though: the 12-core options (the default configuration is a ‘mere’ eight cores) start at over $8,000.
