Lenovo ThinkPad P52

Lenovo is at it again. At the NXT BLD conference in London, they are taking the opportunity to announce “the next step in power and performance“… the ThinkPad P52 mobile workstation.

“Building a Workstation: Beyond Components, Helping Users Stand Out in the Crowd… POWERING UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES”

Building on Legacy

This new workstation continues Lenovo’s ThinkPad legacy but fits all this tech into a 15-inch compact chassis. Fully loaded this powerhouse ships with the new NVIDIA Quadro 3200, 8th Gen Intel Xeon hexa-core CPU, 128 GB DDR4 RAM, and 6TB of total storage. With the Xeon hexa-core CPU, you can experience a level of power and performance not found before in a compact chassis!

With double the memory capacity and increased PCIe storage, the new ThinkPad P52 is ideal for things such as BIM on-the-go, animation and visual effects, large models and datasets and real-time playback. I also know John really wants to take one for a spin with simulation!

Hedwig Heinsman, co-founder of DUS architects and 3D print tech firm Aectual has this to say: “What I like most about working with Lenovo mobile workstations is that I can work wherever I want – from all over the globe to right here in Amsterdam – and make instant, on-the-spot changes to a design. With the new ThinkPad P52, the design of our XL 3D print productions can be implemented directly in the printed architectural outcome.”

At a sleek 15-inches, the ThinkPad P52 provides a 4K UHD display with 400nits, 100% Adobe color gamut, and 10-bit color depth. The extra Thunderbolt port provides support for display of 8K video.

VR-Ready Certified

The addition of the NVIDIA Quadro P3200 GPU offers a significant increase in power to deliver Lenovo’s first 15-inch, VR-Ready Certified mobile workstation. So use it to move beyond traditional workflows and utilize AR and VR content or deployment of mobile AI.

“For Lenovo, it’s about choosing design innovation, legendary quality and a dedication to detail. Like you, we constantly challenge the conventional to deliver an entirely new level of power, durability, and possibility for our customers.”
