The Lenovo ThinkPad P51 we have isn't using the strongest CPU Lenovo offers in this model, but it's performing quite well, especially when the application requires high single-threaded performance. The Xeons offered are typically in the 45W TDP range, so they do use a bit more power and output a bit more heat, but they also offer solid performance for that power increase over the 15W U-series CPUs used in thin notebooks.

 

The Quadro and Xeon work well together in certain applications such as HandBrake, but the Quadro isn't optimized for gaming, it's designed for professional use, and many of our 3D benchmarks don't capture that.
