Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 powered by new Xeon processors launched
A new family of ThinkPad mobile workstations, Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 powered by new Xeon processors launched at SIGGRAPH Conference 2015 held in the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Both the Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 will be powered by Intel Xeon Processor E3-1500M v5 and will feature NVIDIA Quadro GPUs.
The Chinese company boasts that the Lenovo ThinkPad P50 is its thinnest and lightest mobile workstations yet. The P50 will feature a 15.6-inch UHD 4K display and is certified to run users’ most requested ISV applications.
ThinkPad P70 will feature 17-inch display available as either a 4K UHD display or optional FHD touch display and will be loaded with 64GB of DDR4 ECC (Error Correcting Code) memory and according to the company the device can handle four storage devices and up to a 1TB of SSD storage.
Victor Rios, Vice President and General Manager of workstations at Lenovo, said:
“We’ve built features into these machines that were previously unachievable in a notebook. 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.”
P70 uses PCI-Express, which is five times faster than the SATA technology, and will also include two Intel Thunderbolt 3 ports for fast connectivity.
Both Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 will have a new Flex Performance Cooling system, Pantone color calibration technology from X-Rite, a dual-fan design that not only cools workstations better than other technologies, but also is faster and quieter, according to the company officials.
Lenovo says that the ThinkPads are designed particularly for engineers and professional designers. The Lenovo ThinkPad P50 and P70 will be available in the last quarter of this year. P50 will cost around US $ 1,599 dollars and P70 will cost around $1999.
