The BOXX APEXX 4 7402 (left) and APEXX 2 3402 (right).

The new BOXX APEXX 2 3402 and APEXX 4 7402 overclocked workstations both have 8 CPU cores capable of exceeding 4GHz.

According to the workstation specialist, this makes them ideal for both single-threaded and multi-threaded tasks including 3D modelling, animation, rendering, and simulation.

“APEXX offers the best of both worlds,” said Shoaib Mohammad, BOXX VP of marketing and business development. “They alleviate the single-threaded bottlenecks found in Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Revit, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks, and other professional applications, while also providing 33GHz of aggregate frequency for faster rendering and simulation.”

The new HP Z25n features an ultra-narrow bezel making it ideal for spanning CAD images across multiple displays

HP has introduced a new family of professional displays including a new 31.5-inch 4K DreamColor model for colour critical design and a range of ultra-narrow bezel 24-inch to 27-inch models ranging from 1,920 x 1,080 to 2,560 x 1,440 resolution.

With a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, the HP Z32x is HP’s first 4K DreamColor display. The premium model is designed to provide exceptional colour precision and consistency straight out of the box on a wide 10-bit colour spectrum sRGB/BT.709/AdobeRGB (100/100/99.5 percent color coverage).

HP says fast and easy hardware recalibration can be achieved with either the HP DreamColor solution or the Klein Instruments K10-A.

The User Interfaces of established products like Autodesk Inventor (top left) are vastly different to next gen tools like Autodesk ReCap (bottom right).

Autodesk is working on delivering a universal user experience for all of its 100+ products with the development being led by Maria Giudice, former Facebook director of product design.

“I really want to focus on experiences here,” said Giudice, now vice president of experience design at Autodesk, in a recent interview with Fast Company.

“You know, Autodesk has over 100 products, most of which have come in through acquisitions, so there’s no consistent user experience across our products. I want to get Autodesk thinking about that entire chain of experience, and create a universal language for our UX.”

AMD is going after a slice of the professional design visualisation market with its new GPU-optimised FireRender plug-in. The physically correct material and rendering technology, designed to deliver interactive ray trace rendering functionality inside major design and manufacturing applications, is due to be released later this year.

AMD told DEVELOP3D that one of the stand-out features of FireRender is performance. The plug-in is optimised for AMD’s FirePro W-Series GPUs and can scale across one or more GPUs. However, as it is based on the open compute standard OpenCL, AMD says the plug-in will also run on many different types of processors.
