After Nvidia has officially announced their newest Quadro graphic chips for mobile workstation laptops, Dell and HP have already announced their new workstation models. The third big player in this market, Lenovo, has not yet updated the P series ThinkPads.
It seems like such an announcement could come up very soon, as the new Lenovo ThinkPad P53 and Lenovo ThinkPad P73 are listed on the Lenovo Thailand website.
Of course, both new models incorporate the newest Intel processors of the Coffee Lake Refresh series with up to eight CPU cores. This also includes Xeon processor options, which means both can optionally work with ECC RAM. As both have four RAM slots, they can take in up to 128 GB of RAM.
Both the smaller 15.6 inch ThinkPad P53 and the bigger 17.1 inch ThinkPad P73 are updated with the newer Turing-based Nvidia Quadro GPUs, though the smaller Thinkpad P53 receives the bigger upgrade, as it apparently will be available with the Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 – the older ThinkPad P52 was available with the Nvidia Quadro P3200 as its best option, so hopefully, Lenovo has upgraded the cooling system quite a bit.
Overall, the ThinkPad P73 is just a small platform-update. The ThinkPad P53 meanwhile appears to be a complete redesign, although weight, thickness and footprint are seemingly identical with the older 15.6 inch P series. Notable changes include an additional USB C port, which replaced the miniDisplayPort and one USB A port, as well as the removal of the external battery in favor of an all internal one.
The biggest feature change compared with the ThinkPad P52 happens in the screen department. The ThinkPad P53 will be available with four different screen options. Notable is the availability of an OLED 4K-UHD (3,840 x 2,160) screen with 400 cd/m² of brightness and an IPS LCD 4K-UHD with 500 cd/m² of brightness as well as HDR support. There is going to be a IPS FHD (1,920 x 1,080) option with 500 cd/m² of brightness, too.
Since these machines are not announced yet, there are no informations on their availability as of now.
