Lenovo ThinkPad P17 (17″) Mobile Workstation Specifications
Here are the key specs for the Lenovo ThinkPad P17:
Let us get into how our unit is configured.
Lenovo ThinkPad P17 (17″) Mobile Workstation Test Setup
For testing our Lenovo ThinkPad P17 (17″) Mobile Workstation equipped as follows:
- CPU: Intel Xeon W-10885M 8 core / 16 threads
- Memory: 2x 64GB DDR4 ECC SODIMMs (128GB Total)
- Graphics: Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 16GB GDDR6
- Storage: 2x Kioxia 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD configured in RAID 0
- OS: Windows 10 Pro
The Intel Xeon W-10885M with 8 cores and 16 threads runs with a base speed of 2.4 GHz and can Turbo up to 5.3 GHz. This Xeon Workstation class processor also allows the use of ECC memory and Non-ECC Memory, which our Lenovo ThinkPad P17 has 128GB installed.
GPU-Z shows the primary stats of our Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000. The RTX 5000 GPU clocks in at 600 MHz. (boost to 1,350 MHz.) And GDDR6 Memory at 1500 MHz. Pixel Fillrates run at 86.4 GPixels/s, and Texture Fillrate comes in at 259.2 GTexel/s. The Quadro RTX 5000 used is the Max-Q version, which has a lower TDP of 80watts, hence the lower clock speed of 600 MHz. Max-Q versions come in several different TDP ranges from 80, 85, 90, and even mobile versions of TDP 110 and 150. Core speeds correspond as follows: MHz range, 600, 765, 930, and mobile versions of 1035 and 1350.
Let us begin our basic performance tests.
CrystalDiskMark is a well-known benchmark to test your HDD or SSD’s.
The Kioxia 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD is an excellent choice for the ThinkPad P17. We do not see an outstanding performance with these two SSD’s in a RAID 0 as they are tied to the Intel chipset. The ThinkPad P17 has a max M.2 SSD capacity of 2TB for each slot. In the RAID 0 configuration, we can get a max capacity of 4TB for internal storage. The ThinkPad P17 includes 2x TB3 ports at the back, which can expand storage options even further.
Let us move on and start our testing with computing-related benchmarks.
