At Autodesk University Lenovo launched three new powerful workstations for design and engineering professionals. The Lenovo ThinkStation P520, P520c, and P52s cover the spectrum of high-end desktop workstations to mobile powerhouses.
New Lenovo ThinkStation P520 and P520c Workstations
For the desktop workstation market the Lenovo ThinkStation P520 and ThinkStation P520c are single-CPU mainstream tower workstations focused on scalability. These new workstations feature the Intel Xeon W CPUs with 4 to up to 18 cores in a single socket. For many users upgrading from older systems, this can mean moving from a dual socket system to a single socket system with better per-core performance.
In terms of segmentation, the Lenovo ThinkStation P520 is the flagship single socket model that can be equipped with high-end Xeon W CPUs and NVIDIA Quadro graphics that can be certified by ISVs for professional applications. The Lenovo ThinkStation P520c is a slimmed down offering that offers a more cost-effective workstation in the market.
Lenovo ThinkPad P52s Mobile Workstation
The new ThinkPad P52s is Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest quad-core mobile workstation. The mobile workstation “is designed for a wide range of professionals who spend life on-the-go and need the power, ISV certifications and battery life to keep going along with advanced biometric security features to protect their hard work as well” according to Lenovo.
These are always interesting platforms. At STH you can check out our previous generation reviews:
We expect these new systems to become available in late January 2018 and pricing will be announced along with their availability. Workstations are great as we know a lot of STH users have high-end workstations along with their server farms. Stay tuned to STH for our reviews of these platforms once they are launched.
