Lenovo launches ThinkStation P family of desktop workstations

Lenovo has launched the ThinkStation P Series of desktop workstations. The Lenovo ThinkStation P900, P700 and P500 workstations join the entry-level ThinkStation P300, announced in May 2014, as the most powerful professional-grade desktop workstations available from Lenovo. 

“We want our customers to know that we listened to their demands for a higher-performing, more reliable and more usable workstation, and our ThinkStation P Series represents our response to those demands,” said Rob Herman, Director, Worldwide Workstation Product and Vertical Marketing, Lenovo. 

The workstations have been designed for superior cooling of key component
With a fanless, multichannel air baffle for example, the redesigned system draws in cool air onto critical system components and then forces the warmed air out the back without touching other components along the way, for example.

“Lenovo’s new P Series workstations are built for professionals seeking the latest in form, fit, function, performance and advanced reliability features,” said Frank Soqui, GM, Technical Compute Cloud and Client, Intel. “The new P Series from Lenovo will help users explore more ideas in less time than ever before, enabling them to discover the optimal results they need.”

“As data sets get larger and more complex, our customers need increasingly powerful, interactive performance. The P Series delivers this capability by utilising the new generation of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs to ensure that users get the most out of their investments,” said Jeff Brown, VP and GM, Professional Solutions Group, NVIDIA. “We’ve worked together with Lenovo to provide a high-performance system built to run the most demanding professional applications at the core of our customers’ workflows.”

Key benefits of the new systems include:

  • Tool-less upgrades: Access critical components – even the motherboard – without the need for a single tool.
  • Red touch points: Intuitive red touch points guide users for quick component changes.
  • Integrated handles: These make lifting and carrying easy, and also allow for easy rack mounting.
  • Diagnostic port: Plug your Android-based tablet or smartphone into the USB port for system analysis using the ThinkStation app, or use any USB mass storage device to transfer diagnostic information directly to the dedicated ThinkStation diagnostics web page.
The new Lenovo ThinkStation P Series workstations will be available starting later this fall (editor's note: roughly August to October) through Lenovo business partners and on www.lenovo.com
