ICC Partners with VortechsFX and RFX at SIGGRAPH 2019

ICC, VortechsFX and RFX will showcase Eddy for Nuke and Eddy Engine on a powerful VEGATM Workstation

NORTHBROOK, Illinois – July 24, 2019. International Computer Concepts (ICC), a leading systems integrator of enterprise-level computing solutions, has partnered with VortechsFX to showcase valuable Nuke software on top of ICC’s powerful VEGATM hardware. During a live demo International Computer Concepts (ICC) will provide SIGGRAPH 2019 attendees with an in-depth look at the various performance-demanding tasks that can be achieved using the overclocked workstations. “ICC is excited to partner with VortechsFX and RFX to bring Eddy for Nuke to Siggraph 2019. Eddy for Nuke is a powerful engine for both simulation and rendering, which is even further accelerated using ICC’s Overclock Workstations.” says Ian Stewart, Sr. Account Executive at ICC. “Stop by booth #1144 to check out our live demo, and unlock your applications full potential with ICC Overclock Workstations.”

ICC will be showcasing its liquid-cooled Vega™ T-518i.  ICC has invested in a dedicated Overclocking Team that developed ICC Overclock Workstations with the ability to be safely overclocked to 4.5 GHz on all cores, providing ICC’s customers with the fastest workstations on the market.

The ICC Vega™ T-518i

  • Overclocked i9-9980XE 18 cores @ 4.0 GHz on all cores
  • Closed Loop Custom Liquid Cooling
  • RAM – Up to 128GB DDR4 Overclocked up to 3600 MHz
  • Flash Storage – Up to 2x M.2 PCIe SSD
  • Disk Storage – Up to 8x 3.5” or 2.5” HDDs
  • GPU and Expansion Options – Up to 4x double-width GPUs

ICC Vega™ systems are thoroughly tested and ready to ship to customers immediately. For more information, visit https://www.icc-usa.com/products/workstations/.

Eddie Engine – allows the instantiation of all functionality via C and Python API. It provides studios with the ability to integrate Eddy more seamlessly into any studio pipelines or software. Eddy Engine functionality is separated into Simulation and Rendering licenses as well, making it more granular and ensuring the right license is consumed for the specific task at hand.

Eddy for Nuke – has been integrated via the very same C API. It works by generating an Eddy graph, serializing the application’s native properties into Eddy node properties and then executing a dependency graph evaluation engine.
