Lenovo has launched the next generation of its ThinkPad P Series: the ThinkPad P15, ThinkPad P17 and ThinkPad P1 Gen 3; the new ThinkPad P15v; and the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3. Equipped with high-performance 10th Gen Intel H series mobile processors, these new ThinkPads are available in a variety of configurations.
The ThinkPad P Series and the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 feature the new Ultra Performance Mode, exclusive to these systems, which allows users to take full control of their performance settings. Users can now dial up the system, ensuring peak performance when they need to complete a render as fast as possible or demo high-fidelity VR content while maintaining a stable frame rate.
Enabled by default as a setting in BIOS, Ultra Performance Mode relaxes restrictions on acoustics and temperature, allowing users to tap into the GPU and CPU and leverage an improved thermal design to maintain the integrity of the machine and deliver increased performance.
A complete reengineering of the thermal design optimizes performance on the ThinkPad P15 and P17 over their predecessors, resulting in what Lenovo says is an added 13% more air flow, a 30% larger CPU heat sink, larger vents and a new thermal mesh to dissipate heat faster.
Lenovo has also moved to a new daughter card design instead of relying on a soldered solution. The ThinkPad P15 and P17 will feature this modular design, offering four times the number of GPU and CPU configurations than previous generations. With Nvidia Quadro RTX GPUs on board, the ThinkPad P15 and P17 support higher-GPU-wattage graphics than their predecessors, increasing from 80 watts to 90 watts and 90 watts to 110 watts, respectively. This increase allows users to select the right configuration for their needs — optimizing performance for their workflow directly out of the box and enabling more complex graphics on a mobile workstation.
The ThinkPad P15 and P17 boast additional shared features – including a new 94WHr battery and up to 4TB of storage, along with up to 128GB DDR4 of memory and UHD Dolby Vision HDR displays.
The ThinkPad P15 and P17 will be available in July starting at $1,979 and $2119, respectively.
Lenovo’s thinnest and lightest 15-inch mobile workstation – the ThinkPad P1 Gen 3 – has been updated with additional usability features including a new anti-smudge coating, upgraded speakers and a new UHD LCD display option with a 600-nit panel. For mobile workstation users in areas without expansive Wi-Fi access, the ThinkPad P1 Gen 3 also offers optional LTE WWAN – the fastest internet option for remote workers – for increased mobility and performance.
The ThinkPad P1 Gen 3 will be available in July starting at $2,019.
The latest ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 is designed for advanced users seeking a high-performance Windows 10 laptop with 10th Gen Intel H series vPro mobile processors up to Core i9 and optional Nvidia GeForce 1650Ti graphics. This combination of processing power and high-performance graphics, along with a 15.6-inch display with up to 600-nits brightness, offer users advanced productivity and collaboration capabilities.
New Wi-Fi 6 and optional Cat 16 LTE-A wireless WAN provide reliable high-speed data transfers for a highly efficient remote working experience. Modern Standby helps ensure emails, messages and updates are received, even when the lid is closed, and allows rapid resume.
The ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 will be available in July. Price to be announced.
Rounding out the mobile workstation portfolio is the new ThinkPad P15v. Powered by 10th Gen Intel H series mobile processors, the 15-inch P15v offers a UHD 600-nit LCD display and the Nvidia Quadro P620 GPU.
The ThinkPad P15v will be available in July starting at $1,349.
