Thin & light ThinkPads Powered by AMD Ryzen PRO

Lenovo today announced a trio of new models in the company’s ThinkPad lineup, all notably supporting AMD’s 2nd Generation Ryzen Pro Mobile processors with integrated Vega graphics. The T495, T495s, and X395 all promise better battery life (up to four additional hours over their equivalent predecessors), brighter displays (up to 400 nits) with AMD FreeSync support, and common ThinkPad features such as dual far-field microphones, ThinkShutter camera covers, and optional PrivacyGuard filters, which prevent visibility of the screen from off-center viewing angles.

Detailed specifications of all configurations are not yet available, but you can check out the starting prices and product shots of each model below.

These Windows 10 ThinkPads will be powered by 2nd Generation Ryzen Pro Mobile APUs which are 12nm parts that pair Zen+ based CPU cores with Radeon Vega graphics. Sitting at power-sipping 15W TDPs, the lineup spans from a dual core Athlon Pro 300U (up to 3.3 GHz) with Vega 3 GPU (at 1 GHz) to the Ryzen 7 Pro 3700U which is a quad core (eight thread) processor clocked at 2.3 GHz base and 4.0 GHz boost paired with Vega 10 (1.4 GHz) graphics. The Ryzen Pro Mobile processors will further enable the new ThinkPads to take advantage of enterprise-friendly security and privacy features including full memory encryption.
