While we typically cover gaming PCs and notebooks, Lenovo asked if we wanted to take a look at their most beastly desktop PC, the ThinkStation P910. The P910 is designed for professionals who need an enormous amount of processing power. Workstations are common in professional industries, especially when professionals need to design, process, and validate mission-critical tasks. Lenovo's target markets for the ThinkStation P910 are, "engineering & architecture, media & entertainment, oil & gas, or medical industries."
Workstations of this caliber are designed with reliability in mind, but they also have to be serviceable, and Lenovo has taken a unique approach and pretty much modularized the entire PC. Having already gotten hands-on with the P910, I can tell you this review will be a bit more surprising and exciting than others because of the impressiveness of the workstation's design.
The ThinkStation P910 in our configuration is a straight up beast. While it can be configured with faster CPUs, it does use two Xeon E5-2620v4 processors, each with 8 cores and 16 threads running at 2.1GHz with a 3Ghz Turbo. The workstation gives each CPU one 16GB stick of ECC DDR4, so you can add in three more per CPU to take advantage of the processor's quad channel memory controller.
An add-in card houses a single 1TB Samsung SM961, and there is room from another. The real kicker is the GPU, Lenovo equipped our unit with a NVIDIA Quadro P6000 24GB GPU, which makes up more than half the cost of the workstation.
The unit weighs 66lbs, and there is actually a warning on the bottom edge on the back, suggesting two people move the workstation. It's also quite large, with an extra foot in length compared to a standard ATX case. You can customize the ThinkStation P910 to your exact specifications.
The Lenovo ThinkStation P910 base model costs $1899 and can go upwards towards $10,000 like our unit. Our unit's configuration costs roughly $8500.
