The APEXX 5 is the world’s most advanced x86 workstation on the market. When you absolutely have to load up a system with expansion cards, hard drives, memory, and CPU cores, you won’t hear “you can’t configure that” from BOXX. When other vendors come up short, BOXX comes on strong. Configurable with up to two Intel® Xeon® processors for a total of 44 cores (88 threads) and up to five dual-width GPUs and a sixth single-width GPU, the APEXX 5 is the most powerful workstation and can tear through rendering and simulation tasks with ease.
High power machine perfect for the following VFX programs:
The 3U rackmounted version of the APEXX 5 8904 is the newest member of high performance BOXX PCs. Complete with dual Intel® Xeon® processors, it accomodates up to 5 GPUs with additional slots for PCIe add in cards like high speed storage and networking. Interested?

We've made the world's most advanced workstation even better. Our latest configurations incorporate some exciting new features which boost the power of the infamous APEXX 5. By elevating three expansion slots and adding risers, the APEXX 5 now accommodates a fifth full-length, dual-width GPU, a sixth, single-slot, full-length GPU, or any other full-length single-width PCI express expansion card. Another addition is a hot swap drive cage which accommodates up to eight 2.5 inch drives, while internally the system houses up to five 3.5 inch drives or twelve 2.5 inch drives.
Featuring dual Intel® Xeon® 2600v4 processors for up to 44 cores (88 threads), and the most expansion slots of any workstation, configurations that were never before possible are now a reality with the APEXX 5.
Featuring simultaneous utilizations of the following expansion options:
All our APEXX models can be equipped with Windows 7 Professional operating systems, allowing you to enjoy the connected and expansive experience you would expect from Windows. Windows is familiar and easy to use, and easily compatible with all programs. It starts up and resumes fast and has more built-in security to help keep you safe. We recommend Windows.
The APEXX 5 can be configured with the largest array of professional expansion cards including a dedicated GPU (up to a NVIDIA® Quadro™ K2200) coupled with four coprocessors or powerful GPUs (up to NVIDIA® Quadro™ K6000s, NVIDIA® Tesla™, Intel Xeon® Phi™, or AMD FirePro W9100 cards.) On top of these powerful compute options, choose from three additional expansion cards, including a Sync card for frame lock, PCI-Express SSDs, and 10Gb Ethernet. Best of all, these cards are all fed by native PCI-Express lanes for low latency, instead of relying on costly, high latency switches.
Liquid cooling, a standard feature on all BOXX PC workstations, is rated at 50,000 MTBF and derived from the same technology designed for mission-critical data centers. By providing optimal management of the processors’ heat output, BOXX liquid cooling keeps your workstation cool and quiet, ensuring long-term stability and performance.
APEXX 4 workstations take advantage of up to five Sanyo Denki ball bearing fans which draw cool air in through a front grill and removable filter. This airflow system limits dust and other particles while cooling the GPU and heat exchanger for the CPU. Selected for their performance and low acoustic profile, Sanyo Denki fans are recognized as the most reliable system fans in the world.
