Boxx Technologies 3DBOXX 4860 Workstation

Benchmark Results: Euler3D And Sandra 2011

The Euler3D test is a computations fluid dynamics test that simulates airflow over a NACA 445.6 airfoil at Mach 0.5. It reports two values: time and score in hertz.

The Euler3D test demonstrates a 76% performance advantage on the Boxx configuration versus the HP-based setup.

SiSoft Sandra

Note that the z400 results are derived from Sandra 2010 and the 3DBOXX 4860 results are taken in 2011. There really isn’t any difference between the two in the tests we used. On the tests where we don’t have z400 results, you can look at Chris’ results here for comparison.

The Arithmetic results show slightly better performance than a stock 3.33 GHz Core i7-980X, as we'd expect from the increased clock speed.

The Multimedia test shows a similar progression.

We do have results from the z400 for Sandra's Memory Bandwidth benchmark, and the modules used in the HP system are ever so slightly faster than Boxx's 4860.

    Almost $8000 USD and not even a dual CPU workstation? Hmmm....

    what a cheap cpu cooler they have....really...for 8k they could have installed a better cooling system

    major ripoff, the system is worth at most 30% of that price

    mayankleoboy1though if i were to take each component separately and build our own system, it would be cheaper.You forget, the cost of a commercial PC includes service, support, and licensed certifications.

    I wouldn't purchase this workstation. First you can build a better base machine for the fraction of the cost. Second you can purchase on your own the software you require or pirate. Third there is a flaw, yes there is always the temptation of mounting the hard drives in that manor but isn't recommended due to the uneven wear on the spindle that can lead to early failure.

  • For this price, I'd go with a workstation from a major player (ex. HP or similar). You could easily build a dual socket workstation with similar (or better) overall performance; remember that many apps that require this level of hardware are optimized for Xeon instruction sets and 8+ threads. Additionally, you're software vendors would actually support their products on a system running within spec. Simply put, this is a toy not an enterprise class product

    utengineerYou forget, the cost of a commercial PC includes service, support, and licensed certifications.Licensed certifications may be confidence inspiring to some, however, I think they are a waste of money. It is just a different form of branding that can be marketed at what is usually an expensive premium. Think THX certification. It was expensive in consumer audio and video, however, in my opinion, it has had it's 15-minutes of fame.
