ThinkPad P52

You expect a mobile workstation to offer killer specs. But Lenovo, which has announced the ThinkPad P52 at the NXT BLD conference in London, has surpassed my expectations.

  Lenovo ThinkPad P52
CPU Up to an 8th Gen Intel Xeon hexa-core
GPU Up to Nvidia Quadro P3200
RAM Up to 128GB
Storage Up to 6TB
Display 15.6-inches, 1080p or 4K
Ports USB 3.1, Thunderbolt 3, HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, SD Card Reader, Smart Card
Size 15 x 9.9 x 0.96 inches
Weight 5.4 pounds

Available later this month, this premium powerhouse offers up to an 8th Gen Intel Xeon hexa-core processor and an Nvidia Quadro P3200 GPU, along with up to 6TB of storage. But the most attention-grabbing spec is the up to 128GB of RAM, which should be able to help this monster plow through any workload with ease.

Other key features include a 15.6-inch, 4K display that Lenovo claims is rated at 400 nits of brightness and two Thunderbolt 3 ports.

That's all in a package that Lenovo claims 5.4 pounds. Otherwise, it looks like a standard ThinkPad, with a black chassis, silver ThinkPad logo and, of course, the iconic trackpad nub.

The ThinkPad P52 is aimed at VR content creation and other high-end computing, and will likely have a price tag for that type of use (especially with the highest end configuration).

With specs like these, we can't wait to put this workstation through its paces when it lands in our lab this summer.
