PNY launches PrevailPRO Mobile Workstation with NVIDIA Quadro Max-Q and Core i7
PNY started out as a memory OEM, but has recently expanded into graphics card products and even laptops. The company’s first mobile workstation has just been released in the form of the PrevailPRO, which is among the first devices to integrate Nvidia’s Max-Q Quadro GPUs. Even though these models feature one of the slimmest profiles we've seen on a mobile workstation, the PrevailPRO still provides powerful specs for professional designers.
There are three variants of the PrevailPRO: the P3000 Base, the P3000 Upgraded and the P4000. Let us take a look at the differences among these variants. The more affordable P3000 Base comes with a 15-inch 1080p IPS display, while the more advanced models integrate a 4K display. As far as GPUs go, the P3000 Base and Upgrade models are powered by the Quadro P3000 6 GB GPU, whereas the P4000 gets the more powerful Quadro P4000 8 GB version. All models come equipped with DDR4-2400 RAM modules, the difference being that the P3000 Base gets 16 GB, while the other two get 32 GB. Finally, on the storage side, the P3000 Base gets only a 128 GB NVMe SSD + 1 TB HDD combo, as the advanced models come with a 512 GB NVMe SSD and a 2 TB HDD.
The features that can be found on all variants include:
• Intel Core i7-7700HQ
• Sound Blaster X-Fi MB5 audio card
• Dual speakers with ANSP 3D surround sound
• 1080p webcam
• SD/MMC card reader
• Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2

• HDMI 2.0a connector + 2x miniDisplayPort 1.3
• 0.73” thickness and 4.8 lbs weight
• 55 Wh 4-cell battery
All three variants have already started shipping to PNY’s customers and will be made available for the company’s partners and major retailers in the coming days. The P3000 Base is priced at US$2,499, the P3000 Upgraded costs US$3,499, while the P4000 sells for US$4,999.
