Collaboration Drives Successful Implementation
Caffelli, a full-service integrated branding agency in Portland, Oregon, required additional performance and flexibility for their expanding 3D animation and graphics rendering needs. Combining Intel® products and technologies with the expertise and support of BOXX Technologies, Caffelli was able to configure and deploy the ideal setup. The new solution, featuring the Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2687W v3 and Intel® Solid-State Drive DC S3700 Series, enables Caffelli to render richly detailed and highly complex 3D models and scenes at faster speeds—effectively taking their computing and creativity to entirely new levels.
Intel + BOXX Solution
BOXX Technologies, Inc. specializes in high performance workstations and rendering systems for various industries. Their expertise, top-of-the-line components and the latest enterprise-grade Intel components combined to create a custom solution tailored to Caffelli's expanding 3D animation workflows. Considerations for Caffelli's new workstation configuration included introducing more computing power while maintaining a high level of energy efficiency for multithreaded, compute-intensive workloads, as well as gaining the stability and reliability of a true enterprise-grade computing platform. Caffelli's previous rendering system featured an Intel® Core™ i7-3960X processor Extreme Edition with six cores and capable of running twelve computing threads. Stepping up to the Intel Xeon processor E5-2687W v3, Caffelli gained an additional fourteen cores—ten cores per processor in a dual-processor configuration.
