This year, the BOXX booth, located in booth 608, will be taking you to the APEXX—APEXX workstations that is. Stop buy and experience true SOLIDWORKS performance on the fastest, compact, overclocked workstations in the world. APEXX workstations, including the brand new, ultra-compact, overclocked APEXX 1, have been earning rave reviews from numerous trade publications, bloggers, and hardware mags. The all-new renderPRO 1 dedicated rendering sidekick (featuring the same chassis as the APEXX 1) will also be on hand, as well as our GoBOXX mobile workstations, which deliver true desktop-level performance in a laptop.


As always, the BOXX booth will feature some great raffle surprises, which will be announced closer to the week of the show so be sure to follow @boxxtech on Twitter for more. In the past BOXX has held drawings for components like an SSD or NVIDIA graphics card, so it’s safe to expect something similar in Dallas.
