Lenovo launches a new VR-ready ThinkPad workstation, along with two other new workstations

Lenovo today announced three new workstations for its P series at SOLIDWORKS World 2017. The company is introducing the new Lenovo ThinkPad P51s, the P51, and the P71 at the event.

The P51s is a workstation with a Ultrabook build thanks to its lightweight design — the device features a 4K UHD IPS display, comes with Intel’s latest 7th gen processors, and it also sports Nvidia’s Quadro GPU. Lenovo is also going to sell an optional IR camera with the device, and it also sports Thunderbolt 3.

Moving on to Lenovo’s ThinkPad P71, you will be glad to know that it’s actually a VR-ready workstation, which means you can enjoy virtual reality experiences on the device by connecting a virtual reality headset. The device comes with Nvidia’s Pascal-based Quadro GPUs which makes it powerful enough to be able to power virtual reality headsets. It isn’t clear which processor the P71 comes with, but it likely includes Intel’s 7th gen processors. Bob Pette, the Vice President of Professional Visualization at Nvidia stated:

“Content creators working with demanding VR workflows require the most robust and reliable performance possible. Lenovo’s VR-ready ThinkPad P71 with Quadro Pascal-based GPUs for mobile workstations provides the performance, features and memory required for creating the most compelling VR experiences anywhere.”

In addition to the ThinkPad P71, the company is also introducing the P51. The P51 comes with a 4K IPS display that has a 100% color gamut. Both the P71 and P51 also comes with Intel’s latest Xeon processors, 2400MHz DD4 memory, and they are MIL-SPEC certified.

Lenovo announced that the ThinkPad P51s will be available in March, starting at $1,049. The ThinkPad P51 and P71 will be available in April, starting at $1,399 and $1,849, respectively.
