Desktops, and especially Lenovo ThinkStations, are often designed to deliver a lot of power to professionals or creators. But a powerful computer usually means a huge, cumbersome chassis. That’s why Lenovo introduces the ThinkStation P360 Ultra, a surprisingly powerful workstation in a small tower.
The ThinkStation P360 Ultra runs on 12th-generation Intel Core processors and comes with RTX A5000 graphics in its highest configuration. However, with less than 4 liters, its chassis is about half the size of your regular desktop computer.
To keep everything cool, Lenovo mounts the ThinkStation P360 Ultra motherboard in the center of the chassis. This has the added advantage of easier upgrades – this system holds up to 128 GB of DDR5 memory, 8TB M.2 storage and has two PCIe Gen 4 expansion slots.
Of course, the choice of port is important here. But users can be quite creative with the ThinkStation P360 Ultra’s dual built-in Ethernet and Thunderbolt 4 dual port. Lenovo says the system can work with up to eight external displays, ideal for enthusiasts or embedded systems (store kiosks, hospital machines) etc.).
The new ThinkStation is available later this month and starts at $ 1299. My only concern here, from the consumer’s point of view, is that you are trading a lot of money (and a decent amount of power) for a compact machine.
