Lenovo ThinkPad Lineup Updated with 10th Gen Intel Core and Ultra Performance Mode
The folks over at Lenovo have announced that they have updated their Lenovo ThinkPad laptops. They will now be powered by the latest 10th Gen Intel Core processors, and also come with a new Ultra Performance mode.
Updated Lenovo ThinkPad Laptops
The 15.6-inch 4K Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme will be powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core H-series vPro mobile CPU, up to an Intel Core i9. Consumers will also be able to choose to have it with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti GPU. It will have support for Wi-Fi 6 with LTE connectivity being optional.
Apart from that, there are four new P series models; the P17 Gen 1, P15 Gen, P15v Gen 1, and P1 Gen 3. The former two laptops differ from the P14s and P15s introduced earlier, and they both have improved thermal design with up to 13% more airflow and 30% larger heatsink. It is said to adopt a more module design so consumers will have more choices on CPU and GPU configurations. Apart from that, it’s expected to have up to 4TB storage, 128GB RAM, UHD Dolby Vision HDR displays, and a whopping 94 WHr battery.
Moving on to the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 3, it is the company’s lightest and thinnest 15-inch mobile workstation. It has a 15.6-inch 600-nit 4K resolution LCD display, but consumers can also opt for older Full HD panels from its predecessor. LTE connectivity is optional, and it has upgraded speakers along with a new anti-smudge coating. As for the P15v Gen 1, it will be powered by the 10th Gen Intel Core H-series CPU with an NVIDIA Quadro P620 GPU and a 600-nit 4K LCD display.
What is Ultra Performance Mode?
The Ultra Performance mode available in all the refreshed Lenovo ThinkPad laptops essentially allows the machines to go over its limits on noise and temperature for a healthy boost in performance. While most people wouldn’t like the added noise and power draw on a regular, there are times where we might just need a bit of extra performance. This mode allows you to do just that.
These are the newest lineup of Lenovo ThinkPad laptops thus far, with previous announcements by the company having a focus on AMD Ryzen CPUs. No word yet on when these laptops will arrive in Malaysia, but we will be reporting more on this as soon as information becomes available so stay tuned.
Pokdepinion: Personally interested in the X1 Extreme, looks like a pretty interesting machine to me. Hopefully I’ll get to play around with it sooner or later.
