Lenovo introduced two new mobile workstations that will be released in late August, based on 8th generation Intel Core and Xeon processors. The ThinkPad P1 is the thinnest of the two measuring 0.7 inches, while the larger ThinkPad P72 is thicker at 1 inch. Both support large amounts of system memory, Nvidia's professional graphics and fingerprint scanners, so you do not trust passwords.
First, the ThinkPad P72 has a 1
Backing this screen is a number of eighth generation Core and Xeon processor options, although Lenovo did not specify the model numbers (without mentioning Core i9) in the announcement. Discrete graphics can be configured up to the Nvidia's Quadro P5200 graphics chip and system memory up to a steady 128 GB (4 x 32 GB DDR4). You can insert 16GB of optical memory as well as up to 6TB of storage.
On the connection front, the ThinkPad P72 features two Thunderbolt 3 ports, three USB ports, an HDMI 2.0 port, an Ethernet port, a Mini Display Port 1.4 jack, a smart card reader, an SD card reader and an audio-combo connector. Wireless connection is handled by wireless AC power and Bluetooth 5.0.
The power supply of this mobile workstation is a 99WHr battery and 230-watt external power supply. Operating system options include Windows 10 Pro for workstations, Windows 10 Pro, Ubuntu Linux, and Red Hat Linux. It measures 16.4 x 11.1 x 1.0 inches and has a starting weight of 7.5 pounds.
The ThinkPad P72 comes later this month with a starting price of $ 1,950.
Next, we have the smaller ThinkPad P1 package a 15.6-inch screen. The workstation backs up a number of eighth generation Core and Xeon processors, but it's a little less packed than the ThinkPad P72, although there's a lot to love for lower prices.
"As we go out to create ThinkPad P1, we knew our challenge was to build a mobile workstation that would carry the legacy of professional power and reliability in the ThinkPad portfolio, but also meet the customer's need for a thin light and elegant design, says Rob Herman, Lenovo's head of workstations.
Here we see the same screen resolutions and color support, but Lenovo specifically specifies Nvidia's Quadro P1000 and P2000 as discrete GPU options. You will also see up to 64GB of system memory (2 x 32GB) and storage options cut back to 4TB on an M.2 NVMe SSD.
With this laptop, Lenovo throws in an IR camera for face detection along with an HD camera. The connection and port compliant are P72, even though this laptop is powered by a smaller 80Whr battery and an external 135watt power supply. It measures 14.2 x 9.7 x 0.7 inches and has a starting weight of 3.76 pounds.
ThinkPad P1 comes by the end of August with a starting price of $ 1800.
