Lenovo has updated its entry-level desktop workstations offerings with the introduction of the ThinkStation P360 Tower and the ThinkStation P360 Tiny.
The ThinkStation P360 Tower features the latest 12th Gen Intel processors, including the Intel Core i9-12900K, and supports a range of Nvidia RTX GPUs including the 24 GB Nvidia RTX A5000 for demanding viz workflows.
Other features include up to 128 GB of 4,000MHz DDR5 memory, up to seven drives (including up to three M.2 PCIe Gen4 NVMe SSDs, plus 2.5-inch and 3-5-inch SATA HDDs), a 92% efficient 750W power supply, and four PCIe Gen 4 slots.
The ThinkStation P360 Tiny is billed as the industry’s smallest desktop workstation. With a volume of less that 1 litre, Lenovo says it is 96% smaller than a traditional desktop. It can be VESA mounted on the back of a monitor.
Powered by the latest 12th Gen Intel Core processors, the P360 Tiny also supports the CAD-focused Nvidia T1000 professional GPU with 8 GB of memory. According to Lenovo, the T1000 offers up to 47% more performance than the previous generation Nvidia P1000 GPU.
The smaller chassis comes with some trade-offs. The P360 Tiny has half the memory capacity of the P360 Tower (up to 64 GB of DDR5 4800 SoDIMM Memory) and only supports up to two 2 TB M.2 NVMe SSDs, although these can be configured in RAID to improve data security. Both workstations include Intel WiFi 6e standard for improved connectivity.
The P360 Tower and Tiny will be available in April, starting at $1,249 and $1,149 respectively.
