Everyone uses computers in different ways and for different reasons. Business use needs look different than consumer use needs do and that’s why Lenovo has announced updates to their ThinkStation P920 and P720 desktop computers.
Computing needs are evolving quickly and Lenovo is hoping to keep up with those needs with new hardware and specs added to the ThinkStation P920 and P720. Both the P920 and P720 are now powered by new 2nd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable processors and are designed for heavily threaded, I/O intensive workloads.
The new Xeon processors from Intel are optimized for purpose-built platforms have up to 28 cores and an increased frequency of up to 4.4 GHz. Lenovo is also adding support for the NVIDIA Quadro RTTX 8000 GPUs which are powered by NVIDIA Turing architecture. This graphics card line is considered to be one of the most powerful out there.
With NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 powering our latest workstations, industry professionals can now wield the power of hardware-accelerated ray tracing and AI to boost productivity and develop content at unparalleled speeds —not only saving time but also saving money. Also, using NVLink, two RTX 8000s can be connected to provide up to 96GB of total graphics memory; scaling for the largest rendering, visualization, compute and AI workloads.Lenovo Press Release
Lenovo understands that it takes more than swapping out hardware to make a great machine even better. There are thermal and power requirements that need to be met for optimal performance. This is why the company ran the new systems through vigorous testing to be sure you get the best performance from the new hardware. The new ThinkStation P920 and P720 are available now on Lenovo’s website.
