Lenovo launches ThinkStation P3 Tiny compact workstation

Lenovo has recently launched the ThinkStation P3 Tiny, a compact workstation. Boasting ISV certification, this diminutive workstation, despite its small stature, can support up to six monitors, making it versatile enough to provide support for professionals in diverse industries virtually anywhere.

The overall dimensions of the ThinkStation P3 Tiny are 183x179x37mm, with a volume of approximately 1.21L, and it utilizes the Q670 chipset. The base configuration of this mini workstation features an Intel Core i3-13100 processor, with options extending up to the Core i9-13900. Graphics card options include the Nvidia T400 4GB, T1000 4GB, or T1000 8GB. Should users not require a dedicated graphics card, alternative interfaces such as Thunderbolt 4 and quad Ethernet ports can be selected. Depending on the configuration chosen, there are three power supply options available, rated at 170W, 230W, and 300W respectively.

The T1000 8GB, a half-height, single-slot specification, comes with a PCIe 3.0 x16 interface, utilizes the Turing architecture, and is equipped with 896 CUDA cores. It delivers a single-precision (FP32) performance of up to 2.5 TFLOPS, with a maximum power consumption of 50W. The graphics memory width is 128bit, and the memory type is GDDR6. The T400 4GB, also a half-height, single-slot specification, has its CUDA cores reduced to 384.

As for expandability, the ThinkStation P3 Tiny is equipped with two DDR5 SO-DIMM slots (supporting up to 64GB of memory), two PCIe 4.0×4 M.2 slots, and one M.2 wireless network card slot.

In terms of interface, the device hosts a 3.5mm audio port, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports (one of which supports fast charging), and a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port at the front. At the rear, there’s a DP1.4 port, an HDMI2.1 port, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, two USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, and an RJ45 Ethernet port. The independent graphics card video output interface varies depending on the graphics card chosen.

The ThinkStation P3 Tiny, pre-installed with Windows 11, will be available later this month. Lenovo has yet to announce the pricing details. A version pre-loaded with the Linux operating system is expected to launch in July.
