Lenovo is back with their particular brand of magic! The company has just made official new ThinkStation and ThinkPad workstation PCs, with three new models seeing daylight.
The trio goes by the names of ThinkStation P520, ThinkStation P520c, and the ThinkPad P52s.
And although the Chinese hardware giant often waits until CES to refresh its hardware, it has unveiled these new models now, along with some new software for its workstations. More on that below, but first a look at these shiny new PCs.
To get started, we have the ThinkStation P520 that the company says is designed to deliver peak performance for creative professionals. This beast of a computer pushes the limits of 3D animation and visual effects.
It comes with an Intel Xeon W-series processor with up to 18 cores at 4.5GHz, along with two NVIDIA Quadro P6000 graphics cards. Eight memory slots take a 32GB each, for a humongous maximum capacity of 256GB of DDR4 RAM.
The P520 comes loaded with either Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, or Ubuntu Linux.
Moving things down a notch brings us to the P520c that still delivers impressive workstation power, while on a budget. The same Xeon processor options are available for this one, to go with NVIDIA Quadro P5000 graphics and four slots for a total of 128GB RAM.
This one also makes do with six USB 3.1 Type-A ports, instead of eight found on the other one.
Speaking of other ones, we finally have the ThinkPad P52s that Lenovo says is its thinnest and lightest quad-core mobile workstation. It houses the new 8th generation Intel Core i5 and i7 chips, along with NVIDIA Quadro P500 graphics.
The laptop can be configured with up to 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD.
Pricing is not yet available for these, but Lenovo plans to make all three PCs available for purchase by the end of January. You can be sure that they will cost a pretty penny, considering the top of the line hardware they pack.
Which brings us to the other end of the spectrum, the software. Lenovo Performance Tuner 2.0 gives users the ability to run their apps on specific CPU cores, while Lenovo Workstation Diagnostics is a desktop and smartphone application that provides users with insights into their system.
