The trio of Windows 11 machines feature a chassis co-designed with Aston Martin
This week Lenovo announced the launch of the ThinkStation PX, P7 and P5, three new Windows 11 machines that feature “the latest processor technology from Intel”. Indeed, the machines offer CPUs ranging up to 120 cores with support for high-end NVIDIA RTX professional GPUs.
Lenovo says the new laptops offer “groundbreaking chassis designs and advanced thermals, as well as BMC (Baseboard Management Controller) capabilities for streamlined remote system monitoring”. These next-generation workstations are conceived for the hybrid work environment and accommodate a wide range of high end productivity applications, according to the company. This includes virtual reality and mixed reality experiences, virtual production, machine learning, data science, computer aided engineering (CAE), reality capture and AI.
Lenovo partnered with Aston Martin to create “a new tool-less chassis design that allows extreme flexibility and enhanced ergonomics”, the company said.
Three highly engineered, professional workstations
The ThinkStation PX is the flagship of the three new products. It is an industrial level machine that features two Intel Xeon 4th Scaleable CPUs (up to 60 cores per CPU), four dual-slot NVIDIA RTX 600 Ada GPUs (48GB VRAM each), up to 2TB of DDR5 RAM, a maximum 60TB of storage (using nine drives), and an optional 1850W redundant power supply.
ThinkStation P7 is a bit more scaled down – but just a bit. It uses an Intel Xeon CPU (up to 56 cores) and can use three RTX 6000 Ada GPUs. Memory reaches a maximum of 1TB, with a maximum 56TB of storage with seven drives. The PSU offers the option of 1000W or 1400W.
The third new offering is the ThinKStation P5. In its most high-end configuration, this unit offers an Intel Xeon CPU (up to 24 cores), dual RTX 6000 Ada GPUs, up to 512GB DDR5 RAM, and 48TB of storage with six drives. The power supply is also scaled down, and can be either 750W or 1000W.
Rob Herman, vice president of Lenovo’s Workstation and Client AI Business Unit, hailed the new trio thusly: “These new desktop workstations have been meticulously designed with a customer-centric lens in order to meet desired business outcomes and deliver innovative new solutions that our customers can enjoy well into the future as workloads increase in complexity”.
