Lenovo has unveiled the first laptop in the world to use a combination of next-generation Micron LPCAMM2 memory and Intel Core Ultra CPUs.

Intel Core Ultra CPUs, NVIDIA RTX GPUs, LPCAMM2 Memory, and AI Ready Design are featured in the newly released Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 laptop.

The first AI-Ready mobile workstation from Lenovo, which includes Intel Core Ultra vPro CPUs and more, has been added to the company’s portfolio of laptops. With 16 cores and 22 threads operating at up to 5.1 GHz and 24 MB of smart cache, it is powered by a Core Ultra 9 processor. All mobile workstations require a discrete graphics solution, and the ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 supports NVIDIA’s RTX 3000 “Ada” GPU, which offers 4608 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, even though these chips include an Intel Arc “Xe-LPG” iGPU with up to 8 Xe-Cores.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 laptop has a 16-inch screen that measures just 17.05mm (thickness), with a 16″10 aspect ratio and a 92% screen-to-body ratio. The laptop is housed in an extremely thin package. Recycled aluminum used to make the top cover ensures an environmentally friendly design and results in a lighter weight in a very durable body.

In terms of performance, Lenovo boasts of up to 330 system-level TOPs, which come from the GPU and the Core Ultra chip together. The NVIDIA RTX 3000 Ada generates approximately 318 TOPs of peak tensor core performance (INT8), while the Intel Core Ultra NPU only manages to produce 11 TOPs, with the remaining performance coming from the CPU and iGPU. It makes sense that the laptop’s computing performance is emphasized in these workloads given that it is positioned as an AI-first mobility workstation.

The ThinkPad P1 Gen 7 laptop’s use of LPCAMM2 7467 MT/s memory is another intriguing design decision. As a result, this ThinkPad generation is the first from Lenovo to combine Core Ultra CPUs with the most recent LPCAMM2 memory standard. Up to 64 GB of system memory can be obtained with a single module. Together with its dual-fan cooling system that includes a sizable central heatsink with enormous heat pipes covering the CPU and GPU, the laptop also has two M.2 slots.
