Lenovo Launches New ThinkPad P-Series and X1 Extreme

Posted on June 17, 2020 by Paul Thurrott in Hardware, Mobile with 5 Comments

Lenovo today announced new versions of its most powerful mobile solutions, the ThinkPad P-series workstations and X1 Extreme. All of them ship with 10th-generation Intel H-series mobile processors.

“The ThinkPad P Series and the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 will feature the new Ultra Performance Mode, exclusive to these systems, allowing users to take full control of their performance settings,” the firm explains in the announcement post. “Ultra Performance Mode was born from Lenovo’s dedication to push beyond, compelling Lenovo to go back to the drawing board, look inside the system itself[,] and redefine design parameters. Enabled by default as a setting in BIOS, Ultra Performance Mode relaxes restrictions on acoustics and temperature, tapping into the full potential of the GPU and CPU, and leveraging an improved thermal design to maintain the integrity of the machine and deliver increased performance.”

For the P-series line of mobile workstations, Lenovo is introducing new versions of the ThinkPad P15, ThinkPad P17, ThinkPad P1 Gen 3 plus the all-new ThinkPad P15v. These products include reengineered thermal designs, a new daughtercard design, multiple CPU and NVIDIA Quadro RTX GPU configurations, and up to 128 GB of RAM and 4 TB of onboard storage. The new ThinkPad P-series will be available in July and will start at $1,349 for the new ThinkPad P15v model.

As for the new ThinkPad X1 Extreme, this third-generation design delivers up to Core i9 processors, optional NVIDIA GeForce 1650Ti graphics, a 15.6-inch display with up to 600-nits of brightness, WiFi 6 and optional CAT16 LTE-A Wireless WAN connectivity, and Modern Standby capabilities. It will be available in July and will start at $1749.
