Lenovo Launches New Mobile Workstations

Published

on

Lenovo’s recent Future of Work and Digital Transformation study found that 70 percent of global employees surveyed reported higher job satisfaction and that 56 percent felt more productive at home. To deliver a smarter way forward as many companies explore a hybrid working environment that balances the continuation of remote working with a return to the office post-pandemic, Lenovo today introduces the next generation of its ThinkPad P1, ThinkPad P15 and ThinkPad P17 mobile workstations. Each boasts the latest 11th generation Intel Core and Xeon mobile CPUs, the latest NVIDIA GPU architecture up to the NVIDIA RTX A5000 GPU, and added support for PCIe Gen 4 SSDs. These new mobile workstations deliver the performance and power professional users need to maximize productivity.

As is true with the entire Lenovo workstation portfolio, the ThinkPad P1, P15 and P17 are all ISV certified and tested at the highest level to pass MIL-spec standards – allowing users to take their productivity to the next level with reliable devices they can trust. Beyond the new trio of mobile workstations, Lenovo delivers a complete solution for today’s modern working environment and makes it easier than ever to work from anywhere. This includes the introduction of the new ThinkVision P34w-20 monitor for a professional-level display and the ThinkPad Thunderbolt 4 Workstation Dock to conveniently power the full experience.

The ThinkPad P1 has been redesigned with remote users in mind who are looking for power, premium design, and true mobility. Content creators, architects, product designers, and data scientists alike can bring their creative vision to life across multiple use cases, even while on the go thanks to the high performance of the ThinkPad P1. New for this fourth-generation system is a completely clean-sheet design with user-experience improvements and a patent-pending thermal design to support increased capacity.

The ThinkPad P1 maintains its thin and light appearance while offering premium features such as 5G, a larger 90WHr battery, a newly engineered keyboard design featuring a larger touchpad, a higher resolution FHD camera for superior video conferencing, and a top-firing Dolby Atmos Speaker System. This next-generation also includes a new 16-inch UHD+ display with narrow bezels, low-blue light technology, and 16:10 aspect ratio for more screen real estate, all while maintaining its 15-inch footprint. For the first time, the new ThinkPad P1 will offer both professional graphics support with the ability to power up to the NVIDIA RTX A5000-level GPUs or NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080. This lets users configure the machine to best meet their real-time rendering, animation, and visualization needs.

“There is no doubt that the global pandemic accelerated a shift toward mobile workstations as most of the world quickly moved to a remote work environment,” said Rob Herman, VP and GM, Worldwide Workstation and Client AI Business at Lenovo. “As mobile workstations have taken on an all-new importance to our end users, we’ve greatly enhanced the ThinkPad P1 Gen 4 to drive as much performance into this thin & light chassis as technically possible. We did this by greatly improving its thermal cooling capabilities with a vapor chamber in addition to traditional heat pipes. We also developed a keyboard that allows for air intake through hidden inlets to maximize the performance of the CPU and GPU. There was no stone left unturned when we rebuilt this chassis from the ground up – our customers spoke and we listened.”

The ThinkPad P15 and P17 shine in the most demanding use cases requiring the highest level of power and performance. From engineers and designers creating sophisticated renderings to developers working on compute-heavy virtual and mixed reality simulations, these two new mobile workstations offer the configurability and versatility professional users need. The ThinkPad P15 features a 15.6-inch UHD OLED display, while the ThinkPad P17 offers the largest workspace available in a Lenovo mobile workstation with a 17.3-inch color calibrated display – allowing users to view the smallest of details in extreme clarity and seamlessly tackle sophisticated workflows in a portable package.

The latest generation of these three ThinkPad P Series mobile workstations are also NVIDIA Studio validated. By participating in the Studio program the creative community will have total confidence these workstations will handle their mission-critical workflows without issue – maintaining ISV certifications while also supporting the Studio driver and verification process. “Powerful solutions are needed as we continue to work remote and transition to a hybrid work environment,” said Bob Pette, VP of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA. “Lenovo’s ThinkPad P Series mobile workstations are powered by NVIDIA RTX GPUs and deliver powerful graphics and real-time rendering that let people collaborate and work from anywhere they need to.”

Upgrade to a premium visual experience with the 34-inch ultra-wide curved (3800R) ThinkVision P34w-20 that delivers vivid images with 99% sRGB color calibration delta E<2 in WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution and a wide view angle. Designed for professional users who frequently multitask between creative and productivity applications, the 21:9 aspect ratio offers more space for a seamless workflow. Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture features allow simultaneous display from two different sources for enhanced collaboration and the patented eKVM function saves time by quickly switching between applications from two PCs.

The P34w-20 also considers health and comfort with eye-care and Natural Low Blue Light technology to reduce harmful light emissions. The adjustable stand also helps achieve the most comfortable viewing position. The productivity-boosting display simplifies managing individual workspace by offering a single-cable connection solution to PCs and docking hub function. Power, data, video and ethernet signals can pass through the monitor with the USB Type-C port offering up to 100W of charging power. Lenovo ThinkColour software allows quick and easy adjustment of screen setting and management of P34w-20 ports and features.

The new ThinkPad Thunderbolt 4 Workstation Dock features a single 300w power supply so users now only need one high-performance universal port to easily deliver power and connect to compatible mobile workstations. In addition, the ThinkPad Thunderbolt 4 Workstation dock is one of the first cabled docks with Intel AMT for enhanced manageability.

Workplace transformation is pushing more and more users to mobile and flexible solutions. The ability to work from wherever one needs, while also having access to applications and powerful computing resources is crucial. As 83% of global IT decision-makers and management teams surveyed3 expect post-pandemic work to be remote at least half the time, Lenovo’s latest mobile workstations, paired with the new professional display and dock, offer the ideal setup for meeting the ongoing needs of a hybrid working environment.

The ThinkPad P1 will be available from end of July, starting at AED 9500. The ThinkPad P15 will be available from mid-August, starting at AED 7999. The ThinkPad P17 will be available from mid-August, starting at AED 8599.

Sony Launches FE 24-50mm F2.8 G, a Compact, Large Aperture F2.8 G Lens with High-Performance Optics

Published

on

Sony Middle East and Africa has announced the release of its new compact 35mm full-frame compatible α (Alpha) E-mount lens, FE 24-50mm F2.8 G (product name SEL2450G) standard zoom with F2.8 maximum aperture over the entire zoom range. Despite its small and lightweight body, it achieves the high-resolution performance and beautiful bokeh that can be expected from a large aperture G Lens with F2.8. It covers a focal length of 24 mm to 50 mm, allowing you to capture everything from still images such as everyday snapshots, and portraits to video shooting, all in high quality but with a design that will easily fit in the smallest of kit bags.

With the latest optical and mechanical design, the dimensions have been kept compact with a filter diameter of φ67 mm, maximum diameter of 74.8 mm, length of 92.3 mm, and weight of approximately 440 g. Sharp and detailed images at all focal lengths are achieved thanks to the arrangement of four aspherical lenses and two pieces of ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass, so that aberrations such as chromatic aberration, are reduced, achieving high-resolution performance from the centre to the corner. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G uses an 11-blade circular aperture which together with the optimisation of spherical aberration provides the beautiful, soft and smooth bokeh that is characteristic of the G Lens series. It has a minimum shooting distance of 0.19 m (AF) at the wide end and a maximum magnification of 0.30 x (AF) offering high-quality close-up shooting.

The quality is evident through the AF (auto focus) whereby, equipped with two linear motors, it achieves high speed, high precision, high tracking, and quiet focusing. It also supports high-speed continuous shooting with AF/AE tracking of up to 120 frames per second for the full-frame mirrorless camera Alpha 9 III. For those wanting a solid video performance, AF tracking is available for high frame rate 4K 120p or FHD 240p movie recording where critical focus control is required, plus it supports in-body Active Mode image stabilisation for steady shooting while walking. It is also compatible with the focus breathing compensation on camera bodies, allowing for high-quality video expression.

Intuitive manual focus is achieved thanks to the adoption of linear response MF which allows smooth and superior image expression. FE 24-50mm F2.8 G is equipped with user-friendly functions such as a customisable focus hold button, aperture ring, aperture click ON/OFF switch, and focus mode switch, offering high operability and comprehensive control. Plus, for further ease of use, they are designed to be dust and moisture-proof with a fluorine coating which prevents dirt from sticking to the front surface of the lens.

 The new FE 24-50mm F2.8 G will be available in the region from Q2 2024.
