Lenovo ThinkPad P16 Aims For Desktop-Level Performance

Lenovo has simply introduced the ThinkPad P16 cellular workstation, which options Intel’s HX-series cellular processors which can be practically as quick as desktop processors.

A TDP (thermal design level) of 55W is effectively past the CPUs sometimes used for productiveness functions. Rising the TDP is essential as a result of larger efficiency requires extra energy (and wonderful cooling).

Lenovo says it has redesigned the cooling system utilized within the ThinkPad P16 with twin vapor chambers. Each CPU and GPU share some heat-dissipation {hardware}, which works nice irrespective of how the workload is balanced throughout each chips.

The vent design seems to be wonderful, and I anticipate the airflow to surpass what we had seen on the ThinkPad P15 Gen2, which we reviewed. Many gaming laptops have extra aggressive airflow designs, and I’d like to see how Lenovo’s carry out in the true world.

Lenovo says its strongest CPU choice will likely be a 3.6GHz Intel Core i9 HX. However that’s not all: the highest graphics choice is much more power-hungry (115W TDP) in the event you go for the NVIDIA RTX A5500. That’s solely regular for this degree of efficiency, but it surely’s an unbelievable degree of {hardware} in a small quantity.

As a result of it’s a workstation, there’s an choice to make use of as much as 128GB of DDR5-4800 ECC (or not) RAM, and the 2 SSD slots can accommodate as much as 8TB of SSD storage (maybe with a RAID choice?). These are formidable reminiscence and storage choices you gained’t discover on consumer-level laptops.

The 16” display screen is a bit larger than the 15.6” we sometimes see, and essentially the most thrilling choice I’ve seen is the 4K OLED with 100% DCI-P3 shade protection and 400 NITs brightness. If, for some motive, you want one thing brighter, the IPS LCD choice can attain 600 NITs.

This laptop computer is just not small. At 14.3×10.5×1.2 and 6.5 Lbs, it’s on the heavier facet, and you might conceptually discover barely lighter laptops with a comparatively comparable degree of graphics efficiency.

However the ThinkPad P16 reminiscence and storage choices will fulfill essentially the most demanding professionals, and Lenovo’s safety and administration choices cater to this crowd. Lastly, there are the final sturdiness of the ThinkPad lineup and the keyboard high quality, which stay enduring (if not indispensable) pillars to customers.
