Lenovo has announced a new mobile workstations family that includes the second-generation ThinkPad P15 and ThinkPad P17 and the fourth-generation ThinkPad P1. The first two models have practically not changed. Only the equipment has been updated. More interesting is the new ThinkPad P1, which has many more changes.
The refreshed ThinkPad P15 and ThinkPad P17 now come with 11th Gen Core or Xeon processors and NVIDIA RTX A5000 graphics with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. The 15-inch model can also be equipped with a 4K OLED display.
The hardware base of the ThinkPad P1 is a 45-watt Intel Core or Xeon processor. Instead of the modest Quadro T1000 graphics, which were available in its predecessor, the new product installs a GeForce RTX 3080 or RTX A5000 with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory. The ThinkPad P1 and its twin brother, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, were originally thin, light, and powerful notebooks. They were the first devices in the lineup with 15.6-inch screens, and this year the P1 received a 16-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio. It can be with a QHD + or UHD + resolution. That is, the version with a Full HD screen is no longer offered “in the base.”
