With our modular and scalable systems, we aim to inspire creative expression and enable limitless possibilities for our clients’ projects.
The idea for Renderboxes became a reality.
Renderboxes released its first workstation, the Molecule, which was equipped with 7x Nvidia™ 1080Ti GPUs and dual Intel™ Xeon CPUs. This innovative system bridged the gap between enterprise server solutions and high-count GPU availability for small studios.
Renderboxes released the second revision of the Molecule workstation, featuring improved liquid cooling. This version was built with Nvidia™ 2080Ti GPUs and Intel™ Xeon Scalable CPUs, and marked our debut in designing and manufacturing our own chassis.
Renderboxes conceived the ideas for the Nano and Atom workstations. We aimed to reinvent air cooling on dense GPU configurations while keeping the machines quiet and moving away from the traditional desktop/workstation format.
Renderboxes released the Nano and Atom workstations, with the Nano achieving a world's first by successfully decoupling the GPU from the motherboard. This allowed for independent cooling of the GPU and CPU, resulting in super quiet and cool operation under 100% load. As a result, the Nano became our most popular machine and best seller.
In our continuous efforts to innovate and deliver the best performance, we released the third revision of the Molecule. This time, we exclusively adopted the AMD™ Threadripper Pro platform, featuring 128 PCIe lanes, Enterprise grade ECC, and NVMe Gen 4.0 as standard. Our new PCIe daughterboard was also introduced for the Nano, which provided unprecedented GPU performance, stability, and reliability. This move helped us grow our client list tenfold, and we are proud to provide and support some of the most influential 3D artists and studios around the world.
Renderboxes reached a new milestone with the release of revision 4 for the Nano and Molecule (Liquid) workstations, as well as the upcoming production stage of our latest creation, the Molecule AIR. This cutting-edge workstation features 8 Nvidia™ GPUs and a rugged, highly serviceable form factor, designed in collaboration with award-winning DOP Brett Danton and global media agency WPP™.
With the launch of the Molecule AIR, Renderboxes is proud to enter the exciting world of virtual production.
I love my Renderbox!
It's a real privilege of my job to work with craftsmen like them.

'It's in the name, “Renderbox”, it's taken hours off render times and often rendered scenes that other machines have failed to render'
- Brett Danton
The machine I received from Renderboxes has made me a better Artist. Their continued support and understanding of the industries needs are unmatched. I would highly recommend their services no matter the size of your operation
“The ultimate power possibilities in an unprecedented cool (literally too) housing. These are the best builds you can get these days, we have several Renderboxes and they are bulletproof. Love it.”
They provided great advice in choosing the right build to suit our needs, worked well with our in-house IT teams to meet internal specifications and the machines were built quickly and delivered promptly.
At Surface Digital we create art for games. Our work can vary heavily from motion graphics to 3D game engines to high end rendering. After scouring the internet and looking at so many different providers, I was left with the option of custom building our own rigs until a friend sent me a link to Renderboxes. The Nano workstation that I bought has been an amazing investment. It not only looks incredible but it powers through my extremely demanding workload.
We’re so glad that we went ahead and got the Nano, it’s an impressive build and has made a significant improvement to our existing Render-farm. We’ll definitely go back to Renderboxes for more when we need greater rendering capacity. The service overall by Rich and his team is excellent, they’re very responsive and always take the time to understand our specific needs so they can recommend the most suitable machine.
Renderboxes made it possible for us to expand our render farm in the midst of the pandemic, with global shortages of pretty much everything. Rich and his team built two RTX based Nano's, which allowed us to deliver our jobs on time. Both machines became a reliable rendering and simulation solution for our day-to-day work.
An incredible build with considerations for design and practicality. Nano Renderboxes are perfect for both the studio environment and post pandemic home setup - allowing me to iterate through simulations, visuals and renders quickly and reliably with GPU slots to spare!
“We approached Renderboxes to assist us in migrating our Cinema 4D setup from a MacOS environment over to Windows and Richard and his team couldn’t have been more helpful. They provided great advice in choosing the right build to suit our needs, worked well with our in-house IT teams to meet internal specifications and the machines were built quickly and delivered promptly. They have always been on hand if we had a question or needed some assistance.”
This was the first water cooled machine we had used for octane render, we have been very happy with our machines, they have been very stable and get great octane bench. Renderboxes have great knowledge in GPU solutions and are reliable and friendly if you have any issues.
I have always been a Mac boy. But as my work got more and more complex and the need for GPU power couldn’t be ignored any further I was lucky enough to be introduced to Renderboxes. They have revolutionised my workflow and the speed I can crank out work. Especially as I want to enter the animation realm for more projects. Excellent service, troubleshooting and overall support. Rich and his team besides being ultimate render power wizards they are a great group of people eager to assist digital a
The Nano is an incredible machine backed up by the reassuringly personal customer service provided by renderboxes. It took our 2 Nanos all of two minutes to become the new beating heart of our studio setup.
Renderboxes provided us with excellent consulting and built our current next generation RTX GPU render farm. The system is performing flawlessly since we turned it on. We are very impressed by the speed and performance. The renderfarm has definitely set a new milestone for our workflow and the projects we’re working on.
I’d like to say a big thanks for the beautiful machine and all the hard work that went in to getting it ready in time for me to complete my last project. It turns out that I wouldn’t have been able to finish the project without the new machine as render times were insane – even with the beas
We had our entire suite updated to Renderboxes machine’s from our aging Mac Pro’s. They provided a full consultation into how we could achieve this quickly and efficiently for a team of ten designers along with three render-nodes. They have provided unparalleled support and aftercare and we couldn’t recommend them enough.
