Lenovo is teasing a major workstation announcement on the 14th July, which, likely by no coincidence, is also the day AMD is expected to announce their new 64-core processor, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3995WX.
A new #Lenovo workstation is coming soon, and we aren't going to just change the game. We plan to change the rules.

The workstation would be in AMD’s Thinkstation line and Lenovo says it will not just change the game, but change the rules.
This is likely another reference to the 3995WX, which would for the first time bring 64-core processing to the desktop.
AMD is announcing their AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO Series Lineup, topped by the 3995WX, on the 14th and some suspect the 3995WX may be Lenovo exclusive.
