Lenovo recently launched the first and only professional workstation powered by AMD's brand-new Ryzen Threadripper PRO processor. This new workstation brings together unprecedented levels of power, performance, and flexibility in a single socket CPU platform.
The ThinkStation P620 has set a new industry standard as it is the only existing 64 core workstation platform so far. The Threadripper PRO processors offer clock speeds up to 4.0GHz, 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0 bandwidth and 8-channel memory support.
Prior to its launch, 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. In addition to speed and flexibility, its core counts for multi-threaded workloads in a single socket platform are unmatched by competitors.
With the ThinkStation P620, 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 delivers high-end processing potential. With flexible GPU configurations, faster memory, quicker storage transfer speeds, and 10GB of built-in Ethernet, it has set a new standard in connectivity as well.
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 is designed to work within some of the most demanding professionally managed IT environments and provides essential enterprise-grade features. Lenovo's standard testing, ThinkStation Diagnostics 2.0, ThinkShield support, upgrades to Premier Support and three-year warranty, deliver the peace of mind needed to work confidently and more securely.
In addition, AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO desktop processors offer advanced security features at the silicon level allowing users to better guard their important data. This includes AMD Secure Processor, validating code before it is executed to help ensure data and application integrity, as well as AMD Memory Guard which enables full memory encryption to help protect sensitive data against advanced physical attacks should a PC be lost or stolen.
The Lenovo ThinkStation P620 is expected to be available in the market in September 2020.
