Lenovo has just unveiled their first Virtual Reality-ready mobile workstation, the ThinkPad P52. It has an 8th gen Intel Xeon six-core processor along with a Nvidia Quadro P3200 graphics chip.

Furthermore, the laptop is rumored to come with 4 RAM slots, each slot capable of supporting 32 GB RAM respectively. Consumers have a choice between 8/16/32 GB non-ECC RAM sticks and 8/16 GB ECC RAM sticks. The six-core processor paired with the amount of RAM available for installation makes the P52 perfect for corporate use.

The laptop comes with the support of up to 6 TB storage, powered by PCIe-based connections that enable the laptop to achieve amazingly high read and write speeds. This is ample space for users with ordinary as well as extraordinary data storage requirements.

The laptop has a 15.6-inch touch-support screen with a resolution of up to 3840×2160 pixels along with a maximum brightness output of 400 nits. It comes with a 720p, infrared camera to enable usage of facial recognition paired with Intel 9560 wireless AC connectivity support along with Bluetooth 5.0 and 4G LTE compatibility. It is powered by a 90 WHr battery and a 170-watt external PSU. It weighs roughly 2.5 KG.

The P52 comes with 3 USB-A ports, 1 HDMI 2.0 port, 1-3.5 mm headphone/speaker jack, 1 SD card reader, 1 smart card reader and 1 Gigabit Ethernet port. Coming to software, the P52 comes with either of the following five pre-installed: Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro for Workstations, Windows 10 Pro (simple), Ubuntu and Red Hat Linux.

The P52 will be available in worldwide markets by the end of this month. The price is yet to be revealed.
