The computer world continues to experience significant technological developments. Lenovo, a Chinese company whose activities are manufacturing computer equipment, does not want to stay on the sidelines of this revolution. And it is in order to satisfy its customers with high-end products that Lenovo announces the release of its new range of laptops that combines processing power and very high performance. This is the new Lenovo Thinkpad P52 computer that presents performance never seen for a laptop. The official release of the ThinkPad P52 is scheduled for late June 2018, but it is already attracting many fans.
Hedwig Heinsman, co-founder of DUS architects and 3D Aectual, a 3D printing technology company, says, “to create breakthrough designs, DUS relies on the enormous computing power and reliability of Lenovo computers.” “With the new ThinkPad P52, the design of our 3D print productions XL can be implemented directly into the printed architectural result,” he added. Virtalis, an advanced visualization company, finds the P52 a solution to power its new CVR2 solution.
What are the features of this new Lenovo ThinkPad P52?
The new Lenovo ThinkPad P52 notebook has striking features. It weighs 2.45 kg for a dimension of (377.4 x 252.3 x 24.5) mm. It runs on Windows 10 (Pro) or Linux Ubuntu and has a Red Hat Linux certification.

It incorporates a processor of Intel’s latest generation Coffee Lake.
The Intel UHD 630 graphics solution, which can extend to Xeon E-2186M hexacore, is particularly suitable for professionals with a dedicated NVIDIA Quadro P3200 graphics card that supports VR (Virtual Reality) technology. The maximum RAM supported is therefore 128 GB DDR4 with support for 8/16 GB ECC and 8/16/32 GB non-ECC modules. Its storage capacity is 6 TB.

A 720p webcam is provided as standard with the ThinkShutter function. It features a 90 Whr battery and a backlit chiclet keyboard with keypad. With the P52, Lenovo revolutionizes the range of Thinkpad and allows professionals to have a powerful tool for work.
What’s different about P52 and P52S?
The P52S is the previous version of Lenovo P52 that already had significant features. The P52 is improved compared to its previous version. In terms of graphics memory, the P52S has NVIDIA Quadro P500 against NVIDIA Quadro P3200 for the P52. The memory of the P52S can reach 32 GB while its successor can go up to 128 GB. Improvements are also made in the display, storage and battery. The new computer also seems a little heavier than its predecessor and has a more powerful processor.
Among Lenovo’s many prowess, one of the most exciting innovations is an integrated webcam cover for laptops that Lenovo calls the ThinkShutter. This is a tiny sliding blanket that is next to the webcam at the top of the device. It can be moved to the side when you want to make a Skype call or record a video, then put it back in place when you’re not using the webcam to protect your privacy.
