Lenovo has launched the ThinkStation P620, adding a first-of-its kind workstation to the tower portfolio. As the first and only professional workstation powered by AMD’s brand-new Ryzen Threadripper PRO processor, the new workstation brings together unprecedented levels of power, performance and flexibility in a single-socket CPU platform.
By leveraging AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processor, Lenovo is delivering the only 64-core workstation platform – a new industry standard. Threadripper PRO processors also offer clock speeds up to 4.0GHz, 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0 bandwidth and 8-channel memory support. In addition to speed and flexibility, Lenovo customers now have unmatched core counts for multi-threaded workloads in a single socket platform – rivaling competing dual-socket solutions.
Prior to today, traditionally the max core count that a single-CPU system could handle was 18 cores, while the highest a dual-processor system could support was 56. The ThinkStation P620 unlocks a new era of what can be accomplished with a single-CPU workstation. Now users can achieve seamless 8K streaming in real-time, reduced render times, ultra-fast simulation solving, quick assembly rebuilds and smooth interactivity with 3D assets all without having to scale to a dual socket system.
The ThinkStation P620 offers flexible GPU configurations, faster memory, quicker storage transfer speeds, and 10GB of built-in Ethernet – a new standard in connectivity. Lenovo designed and built the ThinkStation P620 for versatility, including support for up to two NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000 or four RTX 4000 graphics cards, up to 1TB of memory and 20TB of storage. And when speed is king, this enterprise-grade powerhouse is the first and only PCIe Gen 4 workstation available today – offering twice the bandwidth of PCIe 3.0.
Built to harness these high-end components, the P620 takes care to support their reliability and stability. For example, the advanced design of the processor also brings increased thermal requirements. Leveraging a unique air-cooled solution, Lenovo and AMD collaborated to create a custom-designed heat sink.
The ThinkStation P620 will be priced at $4,599 (AMD Threadripper Pro W3945W, 16GB RAM, 256GB M.2 PCIe 3x4 SSD, NVIDIA Quadro P620 GPU, KYB+Mouse, Windows 10 Pro, 3-year onsite warranty) and will be available starting in September 2020.
