Lenovo's ThinkStation P330 family packs more power in a smaller package

Lenovo today took the wraps off of its refreshed ThinkStation P330 family.. All told, the lineup brings three updated entries of desktop workstations, including tower, small form factor (SFF), and Tiny systems.

One of the biggest changes across the lineup is that Lenovo has shrunk the footprint of the P330 tower and SFF by up to 30 percent. The P330 Tiny still comes in at the same 1L size, which Lenovo claims makes it the "world's smallest workstation."

In terms of specs, the new ThinkStation P330 tower and SFF are available with Intel's latest 8th Gen Xeon E2100 and up to Core i7 processors. The ThinkStation P330 Tiny, meanwhile, opts for options ranging up to the 8th Gen Core i7 processor. As for graphics power, the P330 tower and SFF is available with up to NVIDIA Quadro P4000, while the Tiny includes options of up to NVIDIA Quadro P1000 graphics.

Rounding things out are RAM capacities of up to 64GB for the P330 tower and SFF, while the Tiny option can opt for up to 32GB of RAM. Storage options range up to 12TB on the tower and SFF and 2TB on the P330 Tiny. Support for Intel's Optane memory is also on board for all three options.

All three updated ThinkStation P330 machines will be available starting in August, but pricing is still a mystery for now. However, for comparison, the current lineup of ThinkStation P320 workstations starts at around $1,000.
