Used for years across multiple industries, Autodesk AutoCAD stands out as one of the premiere software applications for architecture, engineering, and construction professionals. Used to create highly detailed 2D and 3D designs alike, maximize AutoCAD performance by running it on a BOXX workstation.
At its core, AutoCAD is a single-threaded application. This means the number of CPU cores your workstation has doesn't matter as much as the frequency at which a smaller number of cores run. When using AutoCAD to complete 2D tasks like table creation, centerline editing, layout fine-tuning, or geometric object modification, AEC professionals benefit from a workstation featuring CPU clock speeds that allow them to interact and manipulate large datasets. A top AutoCAD workstation option to drive peak performance is the APEXX S3. With up to six cores professionally overclocked to 4.8 GHz, APEXX S3 also features 64GB of memory and up to three GPUs to support documentation and design workflows alike.
The APEXX S-class hosts our most popular configurations for CAD design and 3D modeling applications. With support for three professional GPUs and the world's fastest processors, APEXX S3 is the ideal platform to accelerate your creative workflow.
In addition to using AutoCAD to produce 2D designs, AEC professionals can also use it to create 3D models. AutoCAD visualization allows users to create and communicate nearly any type of design. With tools like surface, solid, and mesh modelling, users can generate 3D models from 2D drawings and more easily demonstrate navigation around their designs during walkthroughs or fly-bys with stakeholders.
Again, it's important to note that AutoCAD is a frequency-bound application, so the best workstation is one that is optimized for single-threaded workflows, i.e. fewer cores running at higher speeds. BOXX addresses this need by working with our hardware partners to professionally overclock CPUs and deliver an optimal AutoCAD workstation.
The APEXX D5 is our most advanced workstation platform. With support for up to five GPUs and powered by dual Intel Xeon SP Processors with up to 56 cores, the APEXX D5 can support a variety of professional workflows.
The APEXX W5 is our most advanced workstation platform ideal for rendering, simulation Deep Learning and other professional GPU accelerated compute applications. The system is optimized for GPU centric workflows.
Whether you’re editing feature films or deploying cutting edge VR experiences, the APEXX X3, with support for up to two* graphics cards and 128GB of memory, is an ideal platform for extreme multi-tasking in your complex production pipeline.
