Lenovo’s Unveils ThinkPad P72 Workstations
Lenovo today is unveiling a new version of its 17.3-inch ThinkPad P7-series highi-end portable workstations. The flagship of Lenovo's desktop replacement-class workstation laptops, the ThinkPad P72 has a new design that's a little thinner than predecessors, and more importantly has received significant performance bumps thanks to the inclusion of an Intel six-core CPU, NVIDIA’s new Quadro graphics card, and other improvements.
Replacing the now outgoing P71, the Lenovo ThinkPad P72 is powered by Intel’s hex-core 8th Gen Core and Xeon processors, as well as NVIDIA’s latest Quadro P5200 discrete graphics with 16 GB of GDDR5X memory. Lenovo aims its ThinkPad P7-series mobile workstations at the oil and gas, automotive, and financial industries, which is where powerful CPUs and GPUs are more than welcome. Meanwhile, with a six core processor and a 9 TFLOPS of graphics under the hood, the ThinkPad P72 can be considered an “every duty notebook” as it has enough horsepower for almost any task.
The ThinkPad P72 can accommodate up to four SO-DIMMs carrying up to 128 GB of DDR4-2667 memory (up from 64 GB on P71), up to 6 TB of storage with RAID 0 or 1 support, as well as a 16 GB Optane Memory caching SSD for an additional speed bump. Lenovo's marketing material ahead of today's launch is a bit ambiguous on the matter, but it looks like the HDD option is for secondary storage, while the laptop uses an NVMe SSD for primary storage and booting.
Just as before, Lenovo will offer two LCD options with its ThinkPad P72 portable workstation. Premium SKUs will come with a 17.3-inch 10-bit IPS LCD with a 4K Ultra-HD (3840×2160) resolution, a 400 nits brightness, and covering 100% of the AdobeRGB color gamut. Models that need to be cheaper and/or run on a battery longer will be outfitted with a non-touch Full-HD (1920×1080) IPS panel offering a 300 nits brightness and full coverage of the sRGB color range.
