ThinkPad P52

With powerful Intel® Xeon® processing and NVIDIA® Quadro® graphics, the ThinkPad P52 is like no other 15” workstation—in fact, it’s our first-in-its-class VR-Ready certified system. A great choice for engineers and designers, and anyone who needs powerful performance in a compact chassis.

An IT admin’s dream

This workstation delivers powerful performance with both Intel® Xeon® and Core™ processing and NVIDIA® Quadro® graphics. And now it’s even capable of rendering VR. Primed for security, the P52 encrypts data with TPM, provides a match-on-chip fingerprint reader, and enables facial login with the combined use of the optional IR camera and Windows Hello. There’s even a privacy cover for the webcam to ensure that it’s only used deliberately. What’s more, with the option of 4G-LTE, out of range WiFi is never an issue for ongoing connectivity.

Ready. Set. Render.

With the new Intel® Xeon® or Core™ i hexa-core CPU, the ThinkPad P52 delivers pure power. And with the option of the NVIDIA® Quadro® P3200 GPU, the P52 is our first 15.6” mobile workstation capable of rendering VR. Weighing in at well under five and a half pounds, this device is primed for work on the go. Choose up to 128 GB of DDR4 memory and up to 4TB of PCIe storage, which enables larger datasets. No more lag time. Additionally, the P52 includes ISV certification from all the major vendors like Autodesk®, AVID®, Bentley®, Dassault®, PTC®, and Siemens®.
