ThinkPad P14s & P15s: Lenovo upgrades Ultrabook workstations with hexa core i7-10810U
In the shadows of the ThinkPad T series and the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, Lenovo sells the ThinkPad P43s and ThinkPad P53s workstations with more power efficient CPUs. Lenovo is updating this series now with Comet-Lake and the new naming-scheme – accordingly, the new models are named Lenovo ThinkPad P14s and ThinkPad P15s.

Mobile workstations normally contain powerful H series CPUs with up to 45 W TDP. Accordingly, they have stronger cooling systems and offer shorter battery runtimes than more energy efficient ultrabooks with 15 W CPUs. But there are systems that blurr the line, the HP ZBook 15u for example, or the Lenovo ThinkPad P43s and P53s. These two are being updated now: With the release of new Intel vPro CPUs, Lenovo is releasing the ThinkPad P14s and ThinkPad P15s.

The biggest news: The new naming scheme (which the other P ThinkPads will adopt as well) and Comet Lake U. CML-U is a small update of Whiskey-Lake, but there is one big advancement: Hexa core CPUs, including the new Intel Core i7-10810U with vPro. In terms of CPU performance, Lenovo ThinkPad P14s and P15s should represent a good jump, albeit only for the top-configurations.

The small step forward for the CPUs is contrasted by a standstill in the GPU area, as Lenovo still relies on the Nvidia Quadro P520 for graphics performance. That is the biggest difference compared with the ThinkPad T14 and ThinkPad T15, which P14s and P15s are based upon.

Lenovo ThinkPad P14s and ThinkPad P15s will be available in May and cost at least $1,599 (P14s) / $1,579 (P15s).

In 2010 I started to get more and more involved with technology, especially notebooks have been my passion ever since. Of course I came across the detailed tests of Notebookcheck very quickly. With time I learned more and more about notebooks and started writing small reviews about notebooks in forums and blog pages. To earn some extra money during my studies I turned my hobby into my profession and joined the team of Notebookcheck in 2016. My personal interest is especially in business notebooks.
