Lenovo Unveils ThinkStation P520 & P920 ‘AI Workstations’: Xeon Plus…

Lenovo this week has supplied its contemporary single and twin-processor “AI Workstations”, which the firm is pitching at the synthetic intelligence and deep studying markets. The contemporary machines are essentially essentially based totally on the easy ThinkStation P520 and ThinkStation P920 workstations, and are powered by Intel’s Xeon processors to boot to 1 or two of NVIDIA’s most modern Quadro RTX 6000 professional graphics cards.

The Lenovo AI Workstation lineup consists of two systems which specs are tailored for AI, DL, and identical workloads, essentially essentially based totally on the manufacturer. The systems can additionally be clustered together the utilization of Lenovo’s Clever Computing Orchestration (LiCO) instrument to extra enhance their mixture efficiency at both the desktop and datacenter levels. Each and every contemporary ThinkStation machines speed Ubuntu Linux, which in a departure from the widespread PC desktop field, is in point of fact a long way more widespread than Windows by approach of deep studying work. Besides the widespread *nix synergies, a huge clarification for it’s miles because Ubuntu Linux is the handiest OS currently urged by NVIDIA for its well-liked RAPIDS originate provide instrument libraries, which could well well be broadly used in analytics and recordsdata science tasks.

Below the hood, the contemporary ThinkStation P520 AI Workstation is powered by Intel’s Xeon W-2155 processor (10/20 cores/threads, three.three – four.5 GHz, thirteen.Seventy five MB L3, one hundred forty W) and matched with NVIDIA’s Quadro RTX 6000 graphics card (four,608 cores, 576 tensor cores, 72 RT cores, sixteen.three FP32 TFLOPS, 24 GB GDDR4). The system is outfitted with 128 GB of DDR4-2666 ECC memory, a 512 GB NVMe SSD, to boot two 1 TB 2.5-trot SATA SSDs.

Meanwhile the ThinkStation P920 AI Workstation is an inherently more grand machine. It runs two Intel Xeon Gold 6136 chips (12/24 cores/threads, three – three.7 GHz, 24.Seventy five MB L3, 150 W) accompanied by a pair of NVIDIA’s Quadro RTX 6000 accelerators. The workstation comes geared up with 384 GB of DDR4-2666 ECC memory, 1 TB NVMe SSD, and two 2 TB 2.5-trot SATA SSDs.

Each and every of most modern ThinkStation systems are also on hand with extra customizations as a originate-to-uncover operation, taking into account more storage and other tweaks. Lenovo says that the contemporary systems would per chance be on hand by the reside of March, and whereas their press birth does no longer define any pricing recordsdata, these professional systems can also no longer be low-price. As they’re essentially essentially based totally on Lenovo’s excessive-reside workstation platforms, the P920 AI Workstation particularly will effortlessly be a $10,000+ machine.
