Lenovo today launches what it says is a budget-savvy, virtual reality-ready workstation, the ThinkStation P320.

The refreshed workstation will be available in both full-size tower and small form factor (SFF). Options include the latest generation of both Intel Xeon processors and Intel Core i7 processors, with CPU rated speeds of up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost. Both form factors will also support the latest Nvidia Quadro graphics cards; including support for dual Nvidia Quadro P1000 GPUs in the small form factor.

VR certification from Nvidia gives a more accessible avenue into VR to those working in industries where the workstation is already recommended. This certification gives ThinkStation P320 users an opportunity to add virtual reality more easily into their workflow without requiring an initial high-end hardware and software investment.

The “VR Ready” certification is based on the use of a Nvidia Quadro P4000 GPU, an option in the ThinkStation P320 tower. ThinkStation P320 offers up to 64GB DDR4 memory. The P320 is Energy Star-qualified, as well as EPEAT Gold and GREENGUARD certified.

The Lenovo ThinkStation P320 full-size tower and SFF will be available at the end of April.
