Lenovo teams up with AMD and Nvidia to release two new workstations

Lenovo has just unveiled two new ThinkPad workstations during SIGGRAPH 2022. The range includes the ThinkPad P15v and the ThinkPad P14s, both of which are laptops.

These new mobile workstations will come equipped with some of the latest hardware from AMD and Nvidia, including AMD Ryzen Pro CPUs and Nvidia’s workstation RTX graphics.

Lenovo’s ThinkPads scarcely need an introduction. The company continues expanding its workstation presence by adding to it every so often, and now, two new models are joining the lineup. Lenovo markets the new releases toward creators, touting the fact that they’re more value-oriented than some of the high-end solutions it also offers.

Made to serve as a way to bridge the gap between the entry-level and premium segments, the two new ThinkPads vary in terms of both specs and size. The P14s is a smaller laptop, and according to Lenovo, it’s also the company’s lightest mobile workstation. With a 14-inch chassis and a weight of less than 3 pounds, it’s certainly going to be a slim, portable device.

The ThinkPad P14s can be configured with an AMD Ryzen Pro U-series CPU, including Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 options, with up to eight cores and a maximum clock speed of 4.7GHz. It doesn’t come with a discrete GPU, however, so it may do a better job in less graphics-intensive workloads — but with an integrated Radeon card, it will still suffice for many use cases.

Moving on to the ThinkPad P15v, this is the bigger and better of the two siblings, equipped with discrete graphics and a larger display. It weighs in at just under 5 pounds. It comes with a 15.6-inch display and a maximum resolution of UHD, meaning 3840 x 2160, although there’s also an FHD option at 1920 x 1080. Both screens feature IPS panels for increased brightness and better color reproduction.

Processor options are similar, but here we have AMD Ryzen Pro H-series CPUs, including Ryzen 5 and Ryzen 7 variants with the same core configuration and clocks as the P14s. Customers will be able to pick out an up to Nvidia RTX A2000 graphics card, making this one a strong option for content creators and various creatives.

Storage and memory options include up to 32GB of LPDDR5-6400 RAM for the P14s and a maximum of 64GB DDR5-4800 for the P15v, as well as up to 2TB storage for the smaller workstation and up to 4TB for the bigger version. You can pick either Windows 11 Pro or Home, Windows 10 Pro, or Linux.

It’s unclear when exactly the new workstations will be up for sale or how much they will cost. Each can be configured to match your specific needs, so the price will surely vary based on the specs that are picked.

Lenovo ThinkPad T480s vs. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Which ThinkPad is better: The X1 Carbon or the T480s?
lenovo thinkpad t480s model logo

Lenovo's ThinkPad is one of the most iconic lines in notebook history, going back decades and representing one of the most recognizable business brands around. They're conservatively designed and well-built, and they offer a few specific design cues that appeal to a specific niche of users. And two models from the range stand out for around $1,000: The ThinkPad T480s and ThinkPad X1 Carbon.

We've pitted the two against each other in multiple categories, taking into account the improvements Lenovo made with the ThinkPad X1 Carbon over last-gen's model. The T480s received a refresh in 2019, too, in the form of the T490. Lenovo has changed its naming scheme since, replacing this range with the more appropriately named T14 and T15.

Lenovo ThinkPad X390 vs. Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
Lenovo ThinkPad X390 review

The Lenovo ThinkPad line is much larger than a single laptop. It's so large, in fact, that Lenovo has multiple different product lines under the ThinkPad brand, from inexpensive Chromebooks to premium mobile workstations. The line also includes multiple 2-in-1 machines, like the ThinkPad X390.

We threw the ThinkPad X390 into the ring with the more traditional ThinkPad X1 Carbon to see how it would hold up. Although both are excellent laptops in their own right, one has a significant advantage in 2021.

Lenovo is introducing the new ThinkPad X12 detachable at the all-digital Consumer Electronics Show. With its detachable keyboard and built-in kickstand, the X12 is expected to make another attempt at taking on Microsoft's Surface Pro lineup.

With prices starting at $1,149 and availability coming later in January, Lenovo says the X12 is all about "combining the features of a high-performance laptop with the flexibility of a 12.3 inch detachable tablet." This is something that Microsoft has long done with the Surface Pro, which boasts speedy processing power, a sharp screen, and a sleek chassis. Now Lenovo wants to take another shot at Surface and push out something similar.
