Lenovo debuts new ThinkStation PX, P7, and P5

  • Lenovo has just revealed a new lineup of workstations for its ThinkStation brand.
  • There are three new models on offer, each sporting a chassis co-designed by Aston Martin.
  • The workstations feature capacity for up to 120-core Intel CPUs and high-end Nvidia RTX GPUs.

Today Lenovo revealed three new next-generation desktop workstations under its ThinkStation banner.

The new offerings are christened the PX, P7, and P5, with Lenovo declaring them the most powerful workstations it has built to date.

The PX and P7 (pictured in the header) are designed for deployment in data centre environments, while the P5 can be utilised in a number of industry verticals, according to the Chinese company. All three also feature something a little unique in that the chassis for the workstations were co-designed by Aston Martin.

“These new workstations feature the latest processor technology from Intel ranging up to 120 cores and support for high-end NVIDIA RTX professional GPUs. Additionally, the new workstations boast all-new groundbreaking chassis designs and advanced thermals, as well as BMC capabilities for streamlined remote system monitoring,” highlights Lenovo of their design.

“From virtual reality and mixed reality experiences and virtual production, to machine learning, data science, computer aided engineering (CAE), reality capture and AI, these next-generation workstations meet the ever-increasing demands for more power, performance, and speed in a scalable and future-proofed way for this new hybrid-work world,” it adds.

Looking closer at the three ThinkStation offerings, the PX is powered by 4th Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors, which boast a 53 percent average performance gain over the previous generation. Added to this is support for up to four dual-slot Nvidia RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs, as well as up to 2TB of DDR5 memory, a 1 850W PSU and optional redundant power supplies.

Moving onto the P7, it can be specced with Intel Xeon W processors, supporting up to 56 cores in a single socket. It can also house up to three dual-slot Nvidia RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs. Here Lenovo says the P7 is well suited for, “content creators, architects, designers, engineers and data scientists who require unprecedented graphics, visualization, real-time rendering, CAE and AI performance.”

Rounding up the trio is the P5, which too supports Intel Xeon W processors, offering up to 24 cores. Available too is support for up to two Nvidia RTX A6000 graphics cards, DDR5 memory, and PCIe Gen 5 bandwidth. “Optimized for architects, designers, engineers, and creatives alike, this workstation shines in solid modeling and compute-intensive tasks including BIM, complex 3D CAD, reality capture and geospatial visualization, visual effects, and edge deployments,” notes Lenovo of its potential application.

At the time of writing, precise local availability and pricing for the new trio of ThinkStations is yet to be shared. That said they are expected in selected regions in May this year, so hopefully more details will surface closer to that time.

With HP having also debuted new Z workstations, there are quite a few options to consider in the coming months.
