Lenovo, one of the world’s leaders in workstation computers, today unveiled the new ThinkStation P8 with the latest AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 WX-Series processor paired with NVIDIA RTX graphics cards.
The new workstations are ideal for professionals in fields such as AEC, M&E (media and entertainment), healthcare, education, and scientific research.
The new workstation features 5nm Zen 4 architecture Ryzen Threadripper PRO chips. This silicon features up to 96 cores and 192 threads of processing. Designed for unrivaled performance, the new ThinkStation P8 builds on the success of the award-winning P620, the world’s first workstation powered by an AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO processor.
The workstation case was designed for optimal thermals by Aston Martin and pairs the industry’s strongest CPU and GPU industry architectures (AMD Ryzen and NVIDIA RTX).
“At Lenovo, we understand that our customers need high-quality workstations that can adapt to their changing and diverse needs. That’s why we collaborated with AMD and NVIDIA to create the ThinkStation P8, a workstation that combines power, flexibility and enterprise-grade features,” said Rob Herman, vice president and general manager, Workstation and Client AI Business Unit, Lenovo. “Designed to offer unparalleled performance and scalability, whether to run complex simulations, render stunning visuals, or develop cutting-edge AI applications, the ThinkStation P8 can handle it all. And with Lenovo’s certifications, security and support, you can trust that the ThinkStation P8 will exceed expectations.”
The P8 can be a tower or can optionally be put into a rack environment and offers platinum-rated power supplies for highly demanding expansion configurations. For example, it can support up to three (3) NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada Generation GPUs to help reduce time to completion in graphics-intensive applications like real-time ray tracing or video rendering, simulation, or computer-aided design.
”We are delighted to power the latest ThinkStation P8 tower workstations with our cutting-edge AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 7000 WX-Series processors to bring leading performance and bandwidth to overcome ever more complex workflows,” said Jason Banta, corporate vice president and general manager OEM PCs, AMD. “Architects, engineers, visual artists and AI model developers will relish the power, flexibility and reliability that ThinkStation P8 with AMD delivers.”
“The Lenovo ThinkStation P620 with AMD Threadripper PRO technology has been an absolute game-changer for our 3D animation and development workflows over the last two years,” said Bill Ballew, CTO, from DreamWorks Animation. “We are looking forward to significantly faster iterations due to the increased performance with the new ThinkStation P8 workstation powered by AMD Threadripper PRO 7000 WX Series in this coming year.”
The P8 workstation can accommodate up to seven (7) M.2 PCIe Gen 4 SSDs with RAID support, or up to three (3) HDDs for large capacity storage3, up to 2TB4 of DDR5 memory with octa-channel support and seven (7) PCIe slots including six (6) PCI Gen5 that deliver higher speed connectivity, lower latency and more expansion capability, and includes 10 Gigabit Ethernet onboard to virtually eliminate network bottlenecks.
ThinkStation P8 includes built-in hardware monitoring via ThinkStation Diagnostics software and the Lenovo Performance Tuner software that ships with multiple profiles to optimize ISV applications.
ThinkStation P8 powered by AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO WX-Series Processors and NVIDIA RTX graphics cards will be available starting Q1 20245.
