A spec sheet from Lenovo confirms that the upcoming ThinkPad T15g Gen 1 can be equipped with either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q or an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q. The T15g Gen 1 can also be configured with a bevy of Intel Comet Lake CPUs. There are a few Xeon options as well.

We recently reported that a new gaming-focused ThinkPad with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q recently appeared on multiple certification sites. Now, a new spec sheet from Lenovo confirms that the ThinkPad T15g Gen 1 is coming, replete with high-end gaming hardware inside.

The spec sheet details a number of configurations available for the ThinkPad T15g Gen 1. CPU options include the Intel Core i5-10400H, Core i7-10750H, Core i7-10850H, Core i9-10885H, and the Core i9-10980HK. There are also two Xeon options from Intel: the Xeon W-10855M and the Xeon W-10885M.

Perhaps more interestingly, the ThinkPad T15g Gen 1 can be equipped with either an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super Max-Q or a GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, both of which offer 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.

Other specifications are decidedly high-end, including up to 128 GB of either ECC or non-ECC DDR4 RAM (up to 4 DIMMs), a 15.6-inch display at either FHD or UHD (3840x2160) with HDR 400 support, and two M.2 2280 NVMe SSD slots. The T15g Gen 1 will come with either a 170 W or 230 W slim AC adapter, which should be enough to power the highest configuration.

While the presence of the RTX 2070 Super Max-Q and the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q imply the ThinkPad T15g Gen 1 will be a gaming ThinkPad, the option for a Xeon CPU is usually reserved for mobile workstations. Since we know the T15g Gen 1 uses the same chassis as Lenovo’s ThinkPad P15 workstation, it’s possible that the T15g Gen 1 is meant to bridge the gap between gamers and graphics/engineering professionals.

We’ll see who Lenovo targets then the ThinkPad T15g Gen 1 is officially released.

What do you think of the ThinkPad T15g Gen 1? Is it the gaming ThinkPad of your dreams? Let us know in the comments.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
