The ThinkStation P410 has its own application launcher that includes most of the latest workstation programs users might be using. It's also a list of applications that this workstation is built for. You can add any application to the list and customize CPU threading, core affinity, power management, and visual effects.
A monitor panel shows system resource usage. There are also some other features such as the ability to control Hyper-Threading and NUMA settings in the BIOS from Windows.
The software also compares your system configuration to software in the list to see if it is compatible. Lenovo's Solution Center offers diagnostic and support capabilities.
Lenovo Companion is Lenovo's version of Window's Control Panel. You can update Lenovo software through the application.
It also offers up warranty information and quick links to the user guide and even discussion forum. It also can test out system hardware.
Running a checkup will test the software side of things and optimize them. One useful tool is Intel's Turbo Boost Max Technology 3.0, which allows the CPU to pick the best core and allow you to turbo it above the rest.
There are multiple BIOS' available to tune, including Lenovo's Nice UEFI Setup Utility, Lenovo Diagnostics, and Intel's ME BIOS. Lenovo's UEFI Setup Utility is loaded with almost every setting a security conscious person might want to control, and if you want to secure your machine, even more, Intel's ME BIOS allows you to lock things down even more.
Most people will never need to go into the BIOS, but if you think you might need to see what settings are available, I made sure to capture everything.
