Next-Gen Intel i7 and i9 Chips Power New BOXX APEXX S3 Workstation

BOXX APEXX S3 workstation first to market with new 13th generation Intel processors — offering big multi-threading performance advantages over Alder Lake chip systems.


BOXX Technologies of Austin, Texas, has announced new BOXX APEXX S3 workstations based on new 13th-generation Intel i7 and i9 processors. The new purpose-built workstations optimize workflows across multiple industries, expand up to 24 CPU cores, and reach 5.8GHz speeds.


The new APEXX S3 workstation is ideal for demanding CAD, 3D design, motion media, and other professional software applications and BOXX is the world’s first workstation manufacturer to ship systems with these 13-generation Intel processors.

“The new 13th Gen Intel Core processors are making it possible for creators to work faster than ever before,” said Mandy Mock, VP & GM of Intel’s Desktop, Workstation, and Channel Group. “From 3D modeling to photo & video editing and more, professionals can take advantage of the BOXX APEXX S3 systems powered by Intel Core processors, which dramatically accelerate creative applications and render times and give increased responsiveness during intense tasks to keep creators moving forward.”

13-Gen Intel Chips

The 13th generation of Intel Core i7 and i9 processors feature hybrid architecture. They are also the first Intel chips to hit 6 GHz, but that chip in the family isn’t part of the workstation selection from BOXX. And while it is fun to think about hitting the 6 GHz stage, clock speed today isn’t as important to overall performance as it used to be.

Code named Raptor Lake, a key improvement with Intel’s 13th generation processors, is the possible 40 percent plus performance improvement in multi-threaded workloads over the current 12th generation Alder Lake chips. The chips feature Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, 20 total CPU PCIe lanes, and up to 36MB Intel Smart Cache.

BOXX Overclocked Workstations

The new 24-core Intel processor inside the performance-tuned APEXX S3 is overclocked up to 5.8GHz, while the reliable BOXX workstation also includes advanced liquid cooling, 128GB of memory, and up to two NVIDIA® RTX™ A6000 GPUs.

Support for the latest DDR5 provides control over memory configuration, while Thunderbolt 4 support provides simple and fast peripheral connections. The versatile APEXX S3 is purpose-built for SOLIDWORKS, Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, and Revit, Adobe Creative Cloud, Cinema 4D, V-Ray, and other applications, delivering optimal performance for CPU and multi-GPU tasks. 

“In a challenging marketplace with software updates continually putting greater demand on hardware, it’s essential for creators to stay competitive,” said Bill Leasure, BOXX VP of Sales and Marketing. “Architects, engineers, 3D designers, and motion media artists need immediate access to the latest technology and the new 13th Gen Intel® Core™ processors inside our APEXX S3 provide state-of-the-art Intel technology designed to optimize a wide range of workflows.”
