Lenovo announces new ThinkStation and ThinkPad workstation PCs

While Lenovo often waits until CES to refresh its Think PCs, the company has announced a trio of workstations today: the ThinkStation P520, the ThinkStation P520c, and the ThinkPad P52s.

ThinkStation P520

The ThinkStation P520 is meant to deliver "peak performance for creative professionals pushing the limits of 3D animation and visual effects." It comes with an Intel Xeon W-series processor with up to 18 cores at 4.5GHz, along with 2x Nvidia Quadro P6000 graphics.

You can also spec it out with up to 256GB DDR4 RAM (eight slots of up to 32GB), and it comes pre-loaded with either Windows 10 Pro for Workstations or Ubuntu Linux.

ThinkStation P520c

The ThinkStation P520c is meant to provide workstation power while still on a budget. It has the same Xeon processor options, and can be configured with up to Nvidia Quadro P5000 graphics and 128GB DDR4 RAM (four slots). You'll also find six USB 3.1 Type-A ports, instead of eight.

ThinkPad P52s

And finally, there's the ThinkPad P52s, which Lenovo says is its thinnest and lightest quad-core mobile workstation. It comes with Intel's new eighth-generation Core i5 or i7 processors, along with Nvidia Quadro P500 graphics. It can also be configured with up to 32GB DDR4 RAM, and 1TB NVMe SSD.

As far as ports go, you'll find two USB 3.0 Type-A, one USB Type-C, one Thunderbolt 3, HDMI 1.4, RJ45 Ethernet, 3.5mm audio and a Smart Card reader.

All of these PCs will be made available at the end of January, and pricing isn't available just yet.

Lenovo also announced some new software for its workstations. Lenovo Performance Tuner 2.0 gives users the ability to run their apps on specific CPU cores, and Lenovo Workstation Diagnostics is a desktop and smartphone app that gives users insight into their system.
