Lenovo has launched the next generation of the ThinkPad P Series: the ThinkPad P15, ThinkPad P17, ThinkPad P1 Gen 3, and the ThinkPad P15v. As the most powerful X Series commercial laptop, the ThinkPad X1 Extreme Gen 3 is also making its debut. All these mobile workstations feature high-performance 10th Gen Intel H series mobile processors and a new Ultra Performance Mode. Available as a default setting in BIOS, this mode helps users take full control of their laptop performance settings. Lenovo says these laptops will be available from July.

According to Lenovo, a traditional ThinkPad business laptop will not exceed 38dB of fan noise under the heaviest workload. But that also means lower performance as the machine has to control the temperature to keep the fan noise under limit. Users will find that Ultra Performance Mode relaxes restrictions on noise and temperature. Moreover, Lenovo has completely reengineered the thermal design of ThinkPad P15 and P17. As compared to their predecessors ThinkPad P53 and P73, respectively, there is 13% more air flow, a 30% larger CPU heat sink, larger vents, and a new thermal mesh to dissipate heat faster. So with better thermal components, support, and Ultra Performance Mode, users can leverage the full potential of their ThinkPad P Series mobile workstation than ever before.
