The Lenovo company has announced their newest computer the ThinkPad P16 mobile workstation. Which will feature Intel’s HX-series mobile processors which is to be close to speed as a desktop processor.
With an increase to the TDP of 55W will allow for higher performance for productivity applications which will be a crucial since the computer will require more power and the ability to cool off even better than the computers that came before it. Lenovo has stated that they have redesigned the cooling system that is being utilized in the ThinkPad P16 with a dual vapor chamber. The CPU and the GPU will share some heat-dissipation hardware. This will be a great asset no matter how the workload will be balanced by both of the chips.
Lenovo stats that the 3.6GHz Intel Core i9 HX is the most powerful CPU option, and they will also be using the Nvidia RTX A5500 is the top graphic option as well. Which will make this an even more power-hungry device if opted for those options. This is something that is normal for the level of performance, but it is an incredible level of hardware to be in such a small volume.
With this new laptop being workstation ready, there will be a formidable amount of storage and memory options that won’t be found on the consumer level laptops. With storage such as128GB of the DDR5-4800 ECC RAM and two SSD slots that can both accommodate up to 8TB of SSD Storage.
Normally a laptop with have a screen around 15.6” for what we would typically see. Though this device will be sporting a 16” screen that is just a bit bigger than we are accustomed to. One of the more exciting options is the 4K OLED with a 100% DCI-P3 color coverage and 400 NITs brightness but if you do need or want something that is brighter. The IPS LCD option can go all the way up to 600 NITs.
Talking about sizes that we are accustomed to. The new ThinkPad P16 is no small device, with its measurements being 14.3×10.5×1.2 and weighing roughly 6.5lbs. It can be said that this is a bit on the heavier side for a laptop. There are comparable options out there to be found which are lighter than the ThinkPad P16 and have a decent performance with their level of graphics too.
The ThinkPad P16’s option for memory and storage will be satisfying even to the most demanding of professionals. Lenovo’s options for security and management will also cater to them. Lastly the durability of the lineup for the Think Pads has always been rather durable along with their keyboards as well too.
