Lenovo is turning its attention to its mobile workstation family, specifically its ThinkPad P Series which are getting upgraded with more potent processors and onboard graphics. Kicking things off are the ThinkPad P53, which is being billed as the world’s most powerful 15-inch class mobile workstation, and the ThinkPad P73, its 17-inch counterpart. Both are powered by up to 9th generation Intel Core i9 or Xeon octa-core processors and can be equipped with up to 128GB of DDR4 memory via four SODIMM slots. Since Lenovo knows that mobile pros often need a lot of graphics muscle on-the-go, both systems can be optioned with up to a NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 discrete graphics card. ThinkPad... Read more...
Humans have been dreaming up machines that take care of everyday household tasks since the Industrial Revolution. Smart home devices of various types have existed for several decades, but have become increasingly popular over the last few years as they have become more powerful, intelligent, and connected. Many consumers are now able to do everything from preheating their ovens to checking up on their home security cameras, with a simple tap on their smart device. Lenovo started to inch its way into the smart home market last year. The Lenovo Smart Display with Google Assistant was released in 2018. It was one of the first Google Assistant-enabled display devices to hit the market. The device... Read more...
It's been a while since we've talked about Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 8cx platform for Windows 10 PCs. Like the Snapdragon 835 and Snapdragon 850 that came before it, the 7nm Snapdragon 8cx is a rather peculiar platform in that it is based on ARM architecture rather than an Intel- or AMD-based x86-64 platform. Today, we're witnessing the announcement of the world's very first 5G-enabled PC, and it of course comes packing the Snapdragon 8cx Compute Platform. It's Lenovo’s Project Limitless and it takes the form of a 2-in-1 convertible Windows 10 PC. Lenovo Project Limitless Looking at the device, it seems like a pretty standard-fare convertible design that would fit neatly... Read more...
Motorola is expanding its smartphone family once again, this time with the announcement of the One Vision. As its name implies, this smartphone is running Google's pared down Android One operating system. The One Vision breaks away from the design themes that we've seen from previous "One" smartphones and does away with the centrally-mounted display notch. Instead, the smartphone uses a single punch hole “CinemaVision” display, similar to what you'd see on the Samsung Galaxy S10e. That cutout houses a 25-megapixel selfie camera if you’re into that sort of thing. Speaking of the CinemaVision display, it measures 6.3 inches diagonally and has a 21:9 aspect ratio. As for the resolution,... Read more...
Smartphones with foldable displays seem to be all the rage these days buoyed by innovative smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy Fold (which has run into its share of problems even before its official release) and the Huawei Mate X. However, the foldable display craze is about to hit the PC sector as well, and Lenovo will be among the first to jump on the bandwagon. The company announced tonight that it is currently developing the "world's first foldable PC" and that it will actually be released to the market next year. Lenovo isn't being specific about an exact launch date, so it's simply sticking with 2020 for now. And although Lenovo hasn't announced an official name... Read more...
Earlier today, we brought you news of Lenovo's new second-generation ThinkPad X1 Extreme and the all-new ThinkBook S family of laptops. However, Lenovo also had another new device on hand to unveil: the ThinkCentre M90n-1 Nano. The ThinkCentre M90n-1 Nano is being billed as the world's smallest commercial desktop PC, as it measures just 7.04 x 3.46 x 0.86 inches and weighs in a relatively lightweight 1.1 pounds while taking up a volume of 0.35-liters. Despite its compact dimensions, Lenovo is fitting the system with some pretty beefy hardware including 8th generation Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors -- with and without vPro technology. Likewise, Lenovo isn't skimping... Read more...
Back in late August, Lenovo launched the ThinkPad X1 Extreme notebook, which took the X1 family to new heights with a large 15.6-inch display and 8th generation Core processors. Lenovo today has introduced the second-generation version of the ThinkPad X1 Extreme, and it brings more of a good thing for those looking for a mobile workhorse. This time around, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme has traded out the 8th generation Core processors for Intel's latest 9th generation Core i9 processors. The first-generation laptop was available with hexa-core Core i9 processors at the top-end of the range, and we expect at least hexa-core (and potentially octa-core processors) this... Read more...

Earlier this month, we saw Lenovo pull the wraps off a new ThinkBook S family of consumer laptops and today we're witnessing the launch of a revised family of ThinkPad business laptops. The new laptops include the ThinkPad X395, T495 and T495s, with the "5" at the end of the name representing that these are machines powered by AMD processors. ThinkPad X395 Whereas the ThinkPad X390 makes use of 8th generation Intel Core processors, the ThinkPad X395 is available with up to 2nd generation AMD Ryzen 7 Pro mobile processors backed by Radeon Vega graphics. You'll find a 13.3-inch Full HD display framed with thin bezels and support for up to 32GB of DDR4 memory and up to a 1TB NVMe... Read more...
Lenovo's line of Legion laptops and desktops are designed for gamers, but one complaint levied against last year's Legion Y730 model was the lack of more powerful graphics options. However, Lenovo was obviously listening to consumer feedback and the new Lenovo Legion Y740 we are looking at today, rights this previous wrong by giving potential buyers not one, but two powerful NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs to choose from. The base model comes with a GeForce RTX 2060, but if you're able to spend a few more greenbacks on your config, you can move up to a GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q. NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q wasn't the only high-end component selection Lenovo managed to squeeze under the hood of this... Read more...
Although we're used to see Lenovo laptops marketed under the ThinkPad and IdeaPad brands, it looks as though the company is introducing a new ThinkBook S family. The notebooks were spotted in China at CITE 2019, and will may eventually be sold in the United States. The new ThinkBook S family will be available in 13.3-inch (S540-13-IWL) or 14.1-inch (S540-14-IWL) display sizes. The notebooks will be available with Intel's 8th generation Whiskey Lake-U processors, with top-end configurations getting the Core i7-8565U. Up to 16GB of RAM can be configured along with up to a 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD. If you're not content with the onboard Intel IGP, Lenovo provides an optional AMD Radeon... Read more...
Motorola's long-running Moto Z series of smartphones is ready for its customary yearly makeover. According to a new leak, the Moto Z4 is the newest member of the family and will come equipped with a 6.4-inch Full HD OLED panel with a waterdrop notch and in-display fingerprint sensor. Last year's Moto Z3 was somewhat underwhelming -- as a flagship -- since it debuted with the already outdated Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC when contemporary phones were already using the Snapdragon 845. This time around, the Moto Z4 still isn't using flagship-caliber hardware. Instead, it's said to use the Snapdragon 675, which sits at the upper end of Qualcomm's mid-range SoC family. There are reportedly... Read more...
Facebook’s Oculus was one of the pioneers with respect to modern virtual reality (VR) headsets with the original Rift, and now the company is ready to deliver an evolutionary successor in the form of the Rift S. The Oculus Rift S represents a mixed bag on the specs front compared to its predecessor and was developed in conjunction with Lenovo. This time around, the maximum resolution has been bumped up slightly from 1080x1200 per eye to 1280x1440 per eye. In addition, lens quality has been improved for better optics (and less eye strain/fatigue). Pupillary distance is no longer a manual adjustment; it is now down in software according to Oculus. Interestingly though, the refresh... Read more...
NVIDIA is looking to expand its presence in the high-performance workstation market with new systems that are specifically geared towards data scientists. More specifically, the machines are designed to accelerate data analytics, machine learning, and deep learning tasks that are becoming increasingly more important to a number of sectors including the finance, retail, and insurance fields. The new GPU-Accelerated Data Science Workstation reference platform makes use of dual Turing-based Quadro RTX 6000 or RTX 8000 GPUs delivering as much as 96GB of memory and up to 260 teraflops of peak compute performance (thanks to the high-speed NVLink interconnect). Backing that immense amount... Read more...
