The ThinkStation P620 Offers Up To 64 Cores and 512GB RAM

Lenovo is announcing their new ThinkStation P620 today, and it has the distinction of being the “world’s first AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO workstation”. It appears that the 64-core OEM workstation era has begun (with custom builders such as Falcon Northwest previously offering just such a system).

“Today marks a new generation of workstation computing with Lenovo’s launch of the ThinkStation P620, adding a first-of-its kind workstation to the tower portfolio. As the first and only professional workstation powered by AMD’s brand-new Ryzen Threadripper PRO processor, the new workstation brings together unprecedented levels of power, performance and flexibility in a single socket CPU platform.”

“By leveraging AMD’s Ryzen Threadripper PRO Processor, Lenovo is delivering the only 64 core workstation platform – a new industry standard. Threadripper PRO processors also offer clock speeds up to 4.0GHz, 128 lanes of PCIe 4.0 bandwidth and 8-channel memory support. In addition to speed and flexibility, Lenovo customers now have unmatched core counts for multi-threaded workloads in a single socket platform – rivaling competing dual socket solutions.

Prior to today, traditionally the max core count that a single-CPU system could handle was 18 cores, while the highest a dual-processor system could support was 56. The ThinkStation P620 unlocks a new era of what can be accomplished with a single CPU workstation. Now users can achieve seamless 8K streaming in real-time, reduced render times, ultra-fast simulation solving, quick assembly rebuilds and smooth interactivity with 3D assets all without having to scale to a dual socket system.”

The Lenovo ThinkStation P620 will be available in September, starting at $4599 USD.
