Another highlight of the new PX range is its ability to support four.
NVIDIA RTX6000 Ada Lovelace GPU cards with 48 GB of memory each. This is ideal for traditional creative and data use cases ( animation, Data visualization,simulation, renderingand video editing)but also, VDI ( virtual desktop infrastructure) applications.
As expected, it can support up to 2TB
DDR5 RAM (Registered ECC) and up to 9 storage drives (multiple combinations) SSD and HDD). Not surprisingly, all of this requires hefty PSUs (the 1.85kW model comes bundled with optional redundancy). windows 11 pro A special edition of Windows 11 for Workstations is installed. The next Bond will partner with Aston Martin?
The dual socket machine comes with a rack-optimized 4U chassis.

Elsewhere, the P5 and P7 are single-socket models with fewer extensions. Like PX, they are also lacking

The Intel Xeon Platinum 8280 found in today’s P920 not only has less than half the cores of the 8490H, it’s almost four years old. But a fully loaded ThinkStation PX doesn’t come cheap. a

All eyes are now on the follow-up to the award-winning ThinkStation P620. It currently has 64 cores.
Threadripper Pro 5995WX, was released in July 2020 and has not yet been updated. Of particular note is the fact that several of Lenovo’s smaller rivals, including BroadBerry, ThinkMate, Supermicro, Velocity Micro, and AVADirect, are rolling out his EPYC-based workstations.
Current EPYC models continue to use PCIe 4.0 and DDR4.0,
4th Gen AMD Epyc The processors (Genoa, 9004 series) will become more widely available in the coming weeks, and workstations with 192 cores and 384 threads (two EPYC 9654s) are expected to hit the market soon.
