Lenovo Announces ThinkStation P920 and P720 Desktop Workstations

Lenovo has announced the latest models of the ThinkStation P920 and P720 desktop workstations, which feature the latest NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics (including the P920’s support of 3x GP100 or P6000 cards) and Intel Xeon processors (up to 3.6GHz), increased 6-channel memory to support the heaviest computational needs, faster memory speeds, support for up to 28 cores per CPU, and full-blown RAID support for NVMe drives.

With this new raw multi-CPU and GPU power, the updated ThinkStations are set to boast fast processing of complex datasets and calculation intensive rendering, editing, and VR stitching, giving professionals the speed and performance they need for their specific use cases. In addition, the ThinkStation P920 and P720 both feature onboard M.2 NVMe SSD support, which offer some of the fastest I/O in the industry.
