The existing high-performance ThinkStation P series is not expected to have any major redesigns as the announcement relates only to the inclusion of Nvidia RTX. Applications ranging from university research to major game developers like Epic are just a few example clients who rely on ThinkStation products.

Lenovo made public its plans to support Nvidia Quadro RTX GPUs for its existing lineup of ThinkStation P series desktops during this week's Autodesk University 2018 conference. More specifically, the ThinkStation P330, P520, P720, and P920 will soon have SKUs with Quadro RTX options.

The new Nvidia GPUs will offer real-time ray tracing and enhanced AI workflows over previous generation Quadro Pascal models. Epic Games is already adopting the new technology for its Unreal Engine software with General Manager Marc Petit praising Lenovo's implementation of Quadro RTX:

"Lenovo understands the needs of the Unreal Engine community, offering AEC professionals powerful workstation solutions featuring the new NVIDA Quadro RTX cards that enable the development of photorealistic real-time applications.”

Aside from the general announcement, Lenovo has not detailed any Quadro RTX GPU names, specifications, prices, or launch dates. These cards will be based on the GeForce RTX series and suggest that we are one step closer to seeing RTX for laptops.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
