Lenovo debuts the ThinkPad P50 and P70 mobile workstations
Lenovo has announced two new mobile workstation families called ThinkPad P50 and ThinkPad P70 at the SIGGRAPH 2015 Conference and Exhibition. These new ThinkPad P Series systems are the best-performing and most reliable mobile workstations available and are designed to run the most demanding Independent Software Vendor (ISV) applications.
“We’ve built features into these machines that were previously unachievable in a notebook, making them the most versatile and highest-performing mobile workstations ever,” said Victor Rios, vice president and general manager, Workstations, Lenovo. “We’re focused on making sure users have the tools necessary to drive innovation. That is why we are expanding our portfolio and raising the standard of mobile workstation performance. Introducing the ThinkPad P Series unites our mobile portfolio with our existing award-winning line of tower workstations, the ThinkStation P Series.”
The new ThinkPad machines come with serious hardware inside – they are both based on the powerful Intel Xeon E3-1500M v5 product family and come with NVIDIA Quadro graphics for excellent visuals and X-Rite Pantone color calibration keeping colors accurate throughout the life of the product and protecting the customers’ investment. In addition since they are both designed for intense calculations and heavy tasks the machines have the brand new FLEX Performance Cooling system that offers two quiet fans and excellent cooling capabilities.
The ThinkPad P70, however, comes with a 17-inch display, while the ThinkPad P50 has a smaller screen at 15 inches. The ThinkPad P70 can support up to 64 GB of DDR4 ECC memory and has the ability to command up to four storage devices and up to a terabyte of SSD storage, thanks to the usage of the latest PCIe technology, which is up to five times faster than the current SATA technology. Additionally, the ThinkPad P70 comes with two Intel Thunderbolt 3 ports for ultra-fast connectivity and a 4K UHD display or optional FHD touch.
The ThinkPad P50 is Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest full-function mobile workstation and comes with a nice 15.6-inch display at 4K resolution for outstanding image quality. Both models also meet the strictest military standards and offer maximum durability.
